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.

This had so much range, and layers, and depth. Like cherries tickling my taint, I need more.
Take the money.

Most likely aged in Whiskey cask.

Taste of:
Caramel, espresso, marmalade, marzipan, crème de cacao, spice, vanilla cream, black pepper, Whiskey Cask....

Outstanding Rum with Sweet, Rich and Very particular Aroma...

This rum for me is a best balanced rum I ever had, perfect harmony of sweetness and full body, lot of flavours, not overly sweet, strong enough, different with every sip, just loved it

Over 2,000 aged rums enjoyed over the past 15 years and Pusser's 15 year old rum is still strong on my Top 15 list. Very smooth aged rum, plenty going on flavorwise, no burn at all at the end, and the most surprising thing is the strong tobacco smell in your mouth lingering for a bit at the end. So different than all the rest and that is the reason why I like it so much.

I'm kind of new to rum being a single malt whiskey person but this rum has definitely turned me. I've been trying quite a few different rums, even got the 24 dram from Masters of Malt.They only allow 1 bottle of this Pussers per order. What's that tell you? By far this one keeps up with those costing hundreds. No kidding! I'm sold on this and get it every chance.I can, since it doesnt last long. Especially when it's in the Pusser's 15yr old Trafalger decanter! Like those good old scotch's ( such as Glenfiddich 21 yr old in a Wedgewood decanter for instance, which by the way is aged in RUM casks! $600-900. Wouldn't it be something if they used Pusser's casks.) Why make a decanter if it's not the best? Good question?AYE! Update, I've tried a few more finely aged rums. OK, so it's obvious they put sugar in their rum but I gotta tell you, not only do they know how to distill rum but they also know just how much sugar to add to put this on top period. Still #1 in my book!

This rum is a true masterpiece. Perfect in any points. Price is high and it deserve it. Buy again if I can find other bottles.

Cracking rum, this!
The first thing I noticed was the lovely smell. It has a strong oak and molasses aroma to it with some tropical fruit in there too.
On the taste, well first of all it's... really good! That's the first thing you notice. It has a mixture of sweetness and bitterness which is quite interesting and seems to come and meander in and out over the time that you drink it - even more interesting. There is oak and molasses, fruit (particularly banana and pineapple), a hint of raisin and date. The aftertaste is an interesting slow fade of rooibos tea, with a tingle on the tip of the tongue - a sweetness and a sort of coffee and tobacco bitterness sailing around in there too.
It is a much more viscous rum than most - it has sticky legs and is a little syruppy - but not too sweet. Any sweetness here is balanced out.
If it's not far off what the British Navy drank, no wonder they were not keen to lose the Rum Ration in 1970!! Though I think what they had was not quite as good as this - aside from the Captains and Admirals.
