Pusser's British Navy ”Nelson’s Blood” 15-Year rum

Pusser's British Navy ”Nelson’s Blood” 15-Year

Virgin Islands, British | Aged | 40.0% ABV

Pusser’s British Navy Rum 15-Year is a blend of five rums from Jamaica, Guyana, Trinidad and Barbados which are produced in mainly wooden pot stills. The blend is aged for 15 years.

The company derives its name from the British Navy 'Purser' who distributed a daily 'tot' of rum ration to each sailor - a tradition which lasted from 1655 until 1970. In 1979 Charles Tobias obtained the rights to blend the original recipe of the British Navy Rum.

Pusser's British Navy Rum is casually known as “Nelson’s Blood” as a nod to the famous death of Admiral Nelson. After being mortally wounded in a naval battle in 1805, Nelson’s body was preserved in a barrel of rum.

A must have. An aged and mellowed version of the blue, slightly sweeter and more noticeable vanilla due to the mellowing of the rum in oak. This is rum at it's best made by non greedy craftsmen.

Up there with the 1703 in the fact that i would give this a 10 if i hadn't tried the Appleton 50yr. As well as being aged in wood for 15 years, Pusser's are one of only 3 rum producers left that distil the spirit in wooden stills. Much smoother than the original Pusser's with dark demerara and deep spice at first with a rich, raisiny, oaky long, long finish. One of the best rums ive tried, Definitely in my top 5 so far!

I find it to be course & biting compared to Barbados Rums

(I adjusted this down from my my initial 10 ratng when I found out it has a lot of added sugar)

One of the very few rums I like better than the regular Pusser's blue label. Really personifies what a great aged rum should be - chest-warming and robust, woody, complex. I just opened my bottle and it will probably take a while to plumb its depths.

Anyone (Verner catsey) who rates this a 5, while giving 10's to Malibu coconut and Captain Morgan Private Stock really shouldn't be rating rums. Maybe there are sites for rating sodas or something.

I'm in complete harmony with the analysis of Da'rum from Germany: This rum is sweet with a strong touch of vanilla and a very long woody finish.

I presume that the woody fnish is the reason why some people do not like this rum, mainly people enjoying sweet rums. I must admit that I've hesitated between 8 and 9 ... Compared to its equivalent 15 years El Dorado Special Reserve for example, I find this rum a bit less complex and fruity.

My ideal rating would have been an 8.5 because it is superior to the Clement Vieux 6 yo agricole rum (rated 8) with which I discovered the world of aged rums.

I completely agree with the advice of Scott T considering the rating of Verner Canatsey: This should never have been so much underrated. My biigest disappointment with an extra old rum was about the Diplomatico Reserva rum (6 yo, rated 6) which is definitely very dry, slightly astringent, very tannic with notes of spices, predominantly pepper ... Verner, never try this one ^^!

Well! A friend of mine brought a bottle of this (wonderful) rum over to my house, and proceeded to give me yet another addiction to outstanding rums. With the first taste, I found it wasn't as sweet as the Barbados rums, but it had MUCH more character! The flavors(as I understand it) come from the distilling method using a wood pot still, rather than a more modern copper or stainless pot. Whatever, the reason, this is a Must Have in your rum collection-

Dejlig rom der har duft og smag som en ægte Pusser's, men samtidig også en fin sødme. Eftersmagen er virkelig god og lang.
Et overvejende genkøb.
