Pusser's British Navy Blue Label 3-Year rum

Pusser's British Navy Blue Label 3-Year

Virgin Islands, British | Aged

The Great British Admiralty first served rum daily to its Royal Navy sailors over 300 years ago until the ration was abolished in 1970. In 1979 Charles Tobias bought the recipe rights, formed Pusser’s Ltd. in the British Virgin Islands, and for the first time made the rum it available for public consumption.

Pusser’s British Navy rum today is the same blend of five West Indian rums as the British Admiralty issued to sailors.

Known as the “single malt of rum” Pusser’s British Navy rum is pot stilled using a similar method as that for single malt scotches, and with no artificial flavors is 100% natural.

Tasty, but not quite great

I'm not a big fan of the Pusser's 15, as it's dominated by bourbon and lacking in rum characteristics that I love, so I wasn't sure how I'd like this. The 15 is far better. I realize this rum was probably intended for mixing, but I rate rums by their taste straight. To me, this is no sipper.

Smells of a harsh spice, whiskey, and oak, with just a hint of sugar, vanilla, and toffee. Taste is also harsh; the 42%abv is a bit too much for the flavor. To me, this whiskey flavor doesn't go well with the rum. If my opinion changes I'll update my score, but so far after several tastings, I'm sticking with my original review.

This is by far the best rum I've found for making painkillers. The sweetness, spice, heat, and oak are perfectly balanced even in a very strong Painkiller.

Okay for sipping on ice or with a splash of seltzer.

Yum it’s nice when you can find it! I’m lucky to have a few rum bars near me. This is one I drink every time. Also for me it’s always with cola!

I enjoy a strong rum, tonic and lime. It’s simply perfect for this. I’ve tried it on other “tiki” drinks, but it’s just got too much flavor (not a bad thing). I bought a good white rum. This would also sub as a (almost) good sipping rum.

Vůně je silně rumová, ale se sladkým karamelovým nádechem. Chuť jednoznačně karamelová, s medem a vanilkou s dubem, skořicí, a vnímaví degustátoři mohou objevit i muškátový oříšek a zázvor. Svou sílu ale rozhodně neskrývá a závěr je příjemně dlouhý, a cítit je jemnou, ne nepříjemnou dřevitost sudu.

Origin: Guyana
All is pleasant in this 40CAD bottle. Smells attractive. Very smooth, no alcohol burn. Amazing, unique dried fruits taste. Original Demerara (I guess) sugar makes it sweet in the golden ratio with dryness. Tiny touches of spices are great.
Not that long aftertaste, but again it signals to pour the extra glass.
Cheers! To the end of qurantine ASAP!

So good. The best for mixing with anything creamy like a painkiller or vanilla ice cream.

I'll say this: if I were a naval officer, after a long day, I'd want something rationed to me that'd kick like a mule too. However, I am very far from a naval officer, so this is definitely far off enjoyable to me. It is unbalanced, with a distinct off-smell that seems less interesting and more annoying followed by an overpowering acetone note that gives the distinct hint of metal. Overall, there are much less loud options offering a much more complex and enjoyable experience for less money.

Starts out with a high funk smell, spanks you with a banana, then wafts off into a ripe banana afterglow.

Our favorite drink is probably the painkiller, and this is "required" for that... you can totally use other rums and it will be a great drink, but for a "purist", this is the only choice. And it's pretty cheap, comparatively, so why would you want to search out something else?
It's also great in several other drinks - strong sugar and caramel flavors, not a lot to dig in to. In summary, it plays well with others

I love this rum. Strong caramel aroma and taste. Earthy, cane notes and more caramel at the finish. Great sipper or in darker drinks.
