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.

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.

Benchmark Island Rum, great color, caramel notes without being sweet, great on the rocks or in a Painkiller

This was my first really good rum. A friend from England introduced me to it as they stopped the "Daily Tot" in the British Navy.

Pusser's the original navy rum. Very rich in flavour. My personal preference is to water it down with a teaspoon full of water just to take the edge off it.

Don't like it with Coke reminds me off captain Morgan yuchh!

Not my favorite, aged nice just has a different flavor profile. Will do in a pinch but not a go to spirit for me.

It's 1/8th pint at sundown whenever I was around Mike, a toast to the Queen . . . who cares if I'm not a Brit?

It cleanses the throat and clears the sinuses and should never be mixed.

If you are heading to the British VI, You need to pay a visit to the Soggy Dollar Bar and have their trademark drink the Pain Killer It is Awesome. Pusser's is a nice rum but so much nicer as a Pain
