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.

Never had the regular Pusser before but I am sure it will cross my path one day. This beauty was far mellower than i expected with a warmer more rounded and pleasant after taste than I imagined. Lovely oily vanilla coating on the tongue full of warm sweetness with just the correct amount of alcohol and oak for my taste, wholeheartedly recommended.

I finished my discovery of navy rum Pusser's by 15 years. It is sweeter than others with notes of vanilla, oak and spices. Rounder and soft, it reveals fruity palate with figs and chocolate. Nice rum.

Took me some time to find a bottle in town but well worth the wait. Very smooth and "clean". I like the blue label but the red label is a grown up version. Lost is the sharp, punch in the face from other Navy rums, replaced with a satisfying drink. Well done sir, well done.

Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Britské Panenské ostrovy
Aroma: Hodně výrazná, sladce kořenitá, až opulentní vůně, připomíná mi perník. Koření, čokoláda, marmeláda. Hřejivý dojem. Včelí plástve, kůže, v druhé vlně pak i něco těžších květinových vůní. (91 b)
Chuť: Sladkost jen mírná (asi tak 1/3), stylově mi trochu připomíná sudy po sherry, ale dle informací výrobce víme jen tolik, že si poležel 15 let v opálených sudech. Suchá těžká kořenitost, závan pendreku, v dochuti pak karamel a připálené rozinky z vánočky. Přes to vše mi přijde zároveň jemný. (87 b)
Body: 89
Shrnutí: Poprvé jsem ochutnal na červnové akci s josém v Hořicích, od té doby jsem přechutnával ještě několikrát. Je to pohodový relaxační rum, vůně je výrazná, chuť poměrně bohatá, ale zároveň si udržuje překvapivou jemnost. S nákupem jsem spokojen.

Excellent rum to say the least. From the nose you get the slap upside the face that it is Pusser's. But this stuff is off the hook for a smooth rum from start to finish. Starts of on the nose with hints of dried fruits, very slightly sweet, finish is of leather tobacco and a hint of vanilla. Great mouth feel and just the right amount of esters. Recommend a cube of ice, let her sit a few and partake. Good stuff! And of course an original tasting rum that only tastes like Pusser's. Update.... Just bought another bottle and............... Yip it gets better by the minute.

I rated this higher than most reviewers because of the unique quality of this rum that I think works for those that are looking for a great rum that is a bit different. You can taste and smell more of the barrel than with other rums and it gives this brand a woody but also rich - but not harsh - profile. If you are looking for something sightly different with a rich taste, I would highly recommend this.

The first thing you notice when you pop the cork is the smell. Rich and spicy and with a promice of somthing streng. The taste is rich and strong with a hint of sweetness. It explodes in the mouth with a little burn.

I see all nice comments around this one. I was because of that probably expecting more out of the product. I prefer a little bit less oaky whiskey taste . But I can understand the ones liking it.

'The single malt of rum". Lives up to the hype. If you like a good woody whisky, you'll love this.

Leaves a nice peppery molasses tasye in the back of the throat.
