Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
A piece of history that will always be in my collection.
Ester rich, pungent pot stilled perfection. Stewed fruits, brine and spice.
The bench mark for Navy rum.
I only left a star off because the overproof is really the authentic deal but it's the same rum just with less water added.
It's a nice strong rum (54%). A lot of flavour. It even dominates the cola.
If this is the benchmark for "Navy Rum", then sign me up. A little spiciness to kick it into high-gear, with caramel/butterscotch, toffee, and mild hints of orange in there somewhere, Pusser's has character! Very much tolerable straight-up, this is a good drink in just about anything - citrus juices, Coke, Sprite/7-Up, you name it! Pusser's commands respect - it's got mine!
Rhum très boisé et au goûter le caramel un peu vanillée, on sent un peu la Jamaïque. Au nez chocolat et cognac. Je m'attendais à mieux mais correct.
I appreciate this rum on ice or with coke. Not a sipping rum in my book. Lots of complex fruity flavors.
Silnejsi, na konci zahreje, s lehkym kourovym nadechem, celou dobu jemna chut
Another nice drink on the rocks. Unfortunately I can only find it at the duty free coming back from Canada
A real Navy rum with a kick. unfortunately Tot call has been eliminated from her majesty's Navy and when it was still there I remember the rum being mixed with water but the flavor and bite was still there and Pusser's brought back those memories with a substantial improvement in flavor and bite. One of my favorites. Not for the faint of heart, its a strong course rum.
Painkillers. Pusser's was made for Painkillers. I tried sipping it once and recall it being very rough. I'll need to revisit it with a proper glass.
This being 'the' navy rum, my expectations were quite high. It is not a bad rum for sure, but the taste is mediocre at best. Reading reviews of Black Tot Rum or
British Royal Navy Imperial Reserve Rum, one can not help but ask "Why is this called the original British Navy Rum?". I have not had the original, but this is clearly something very different.
It is far from bad, but also far from good.
Great taste, but for somebody it can be little bit strong.
Good color, nose a bit harsh with leather and sweet notes, maybe prunes. I find the palate a bit strong for sipping or on the rocks. Astringent at first with strong notes of wood but undefined.
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.
Ho voluto provare questo rum pur non avendo mai sentito la marca. Purtroppo è troppo alcolico tanto da non sentire l'aroma del rum stesso.
A nice blend of flavors, but a bit harsh on its own. Excellent in mixed drinks as it adds depth of flavor.
Pusser's is an excellent price-point rum that I try to keep on hand whenever possible
For being a heavy Navy rum I assumed I would love this. But the more I sipped the less I liked. I may just have to keep this for The Painkiller Cocktail only. Interested to see what the Red Label is like. Maybe it's more my wheelhouse.
I tried this for the first time today. It's aroma was slightly sweet, but still had a hint behind it that told me that it wasn't messing around. Not sweet enough for me to enjoy it on a regular basis, but I am ok with that. I pour a little in my glass, and it is very light at first, but gains depth when you pour more. I mix my Sprite with it, like I typically do, and take a sip. I am unsure of what to think about it at first. I can tell my mixture choice was wrong, but the rum wasn't bad. I want to give it a higher rating than I did, because I can tell it has potential. For those that like to drink things straight, I am sure you will enjoy this one, just make sure it is only slightly chilled. I do not think it would fair very well ice cold, or warm. That also may be my preference though. As for those of us that like to mix, do not just do it with Sprite. Find an older rum sour mixture, and I am sure this will go well. I am talking squeeze the fruit old mixture. Not the sour mix, even though it may work also. I plan on making a painkiller with this sometime this weekend. Hopefully it fairs well.
I was first introduced to Pussers rum on my first sailboat trip to BVI's too many years ago. At the time, when it cost less than ten bucks, we used it to make "boat drinks"; pain killers, rum punch, gumbay smash etc. When I can't afford the airfare, having a taste of Pussers brings me a little closer to the BVI's.
Da jeg er helt ny inden for rommens verden, har jeg bestræbt mig på at få rom fra hele verden, for at sammenligne dem og for at finde den jeg så vil "satse" på.

Especially painkiller is great but this rum itself is not that tasty for me.
I own this rum just to make Pain Killers. Not a bad rum, I've mixed it, put it on the rocks and even tried neat.
Delicious in cocktails... especially on a Sunday afternoon on Camden Beach
Tart, almost too sweet of a taste, medium finish that doesn't get any better. Limited spice but still present. Almost a spoiled fruit.
Bottles I had in the UK were much stronger. Much tastier too. Feel like we're getting a lesser product here in the states.
Getting Chocolate and Leather with this one. A fair sipper.
