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

And while it's mildly sweet I don't find much redeeming value in this. For the price you can get something far superior.

Herkomst: Britse Maagdeneilanden
Abv: 47,75%
Fles: 50cl PE flesje.

Een lekker pittig rummetje, je merkt de alcohol goed op :-)
Verders veel caramel en hout smaken. Niet al te zoet en een beetje droog. Lijkt wel een single malt rum.

Dit "recept" rum kregen britse matrozen van 1655 tot 1971 dagelijk bij het rantsoen.

Love this rum . Good strong rum for sipping or a good and kicken rum and coke

This is said to be the closest you can get to the old rum tots, with a very broad-shouldered rich taste. You will not find it boozey even if it's 54.5%. Leave it out for a good while to air in the glass before you devour it.

obviously not too smooth at 50%< but a really good navy rum. Plenty of flavour and great straight up.

Pusser's Blue label 42% Export version I would have to say this is one of the few rums I enjoyed mixing over sipping. Not a great sipper has a strange sipping profile though mildly complex. I also found the synthetic cork to fit inside the bottle too snugly as to where force needed to be used to dislodge it, the first time I opened this rum I a slash of rum on the lap.

I love this rum the 54% is the best in the range it's powerful, full of flavour and keeps you nice and warm in winter!!

The first thing I noticed when sipping was a distinct hint of leather. I could also taste hints of vanilla. It was slightly bitter for my sipping tastes, but excellent for mixing. Works great in the famous Painkiller. Reasonably priced and a cool bottle.

If you are looking for a smooth rum with that strong true rum flavour then this is for you if you need for something more complicated this is not what you want

Revised again: After tasting many more rums and revisiting this, I lowered my rating a notch. Nonetheless, this is a quality rum with a smooth, rich, complex flavor. Probably not a sipper for me but it also holds up well on the rocks or in mixed drinks.
