Pusser's British Navy rum

Pusser's British Navy

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.

Love the Pusser's Rum, especially in Pain Killers.

I was surprised to find the complexity that I did in this rum. After it decanted for ten minutes I found this to be an exceptional sipper.

Lidt sprittet, burde ha stået et stykke tid inde jeg drak den.

This rum is a real kick in the pants. Quite strong, it doesn't go down kindly. Really requires mixing.

I bought the 54% pussers and tuned it down with some drops of whater after it struck me in the face purely.
The dillution was healthy and the result is similar to seales 10. A very complex caramel, leather and oaky profile with a hint of vanilla. I like it a lot.

Or anyone who really enjoys a complex naval style blend. Excellent quality rum.

The classic Pusser`s Rum perfect for the Painkiller cocktail and really, it is! a good middle-range rum usable in most mixed drinks and Tiki drinks.Only the added sugar (20g/L) takes down my rating.
