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.

I get aromas of oak, varnish, hints of caramel sweetness and alcohol. Balanced a bit towards dry. Warming but not hot. Long astringent finish. Charcoal? Great body and long legs. What you would expect of a Navy rum and more. Not at all bad. Just a bit course. I'll sip it neat or over a cube or two. Purists may chastise me but a twist of lime would be a great addition. Perhaps a little over budget at $70 but I'd recommend!

This has hogo written all over it. Definitely the overrippen bananas coming through and lovely proof at 57%

7.5/10 this seemed to be an interesting profile for a white rum with a decent amount of that highly sought after jamaican funk. Would like to try it again as my palate was pretty shot the first time around.

The strength on the nose of this is brutal however the taste is what a white rum should taste like strong on the grass and caramel smell ...pot still beautiful.. would I pay a lot for a bottle no but would I sample for something different from a rum most definitely

This is proof, white rums do not have to be boring! A tasty rum on its own, really good. Surprisingly fruity.

Bought a bottle of Forsyths WP 502 Rum on a sunny Saturday. Pretty nice bottle and label design. Light golden color. Super strong alcohol mixed with artificial banana flavored rubber and a massive amount of moldy funk to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong and dry burn at the end. I'm sure this is what rat poison tastes like.

Sweet notes, leathery oily aroma. Earthy and vegetal of fresh mushrooms. Boiled cane, fresh guava juice and fruit of sweet pineapple.

Earthy vegetal with sweet basil, with lots of mineral and oiliness. Rich banana compote.

Nutty, dried plum with cardamom.

Very much on nose compare to the tasting. Finishing was interesting as it has a different characteristics compare to nosing.

Strong and rich nose. Predominant strong tones of brown sugar and mollases.
Very tasteful for a white one.
Easy going.
Its not exactly aftertaste but the taste remains and expands for a long after drinking.
Maybe a little overpriced.

i bought this rum about two years and forgot it was in my collection. After pouring it in a glass neat, you can smell the strong aroma of sweet plantain, pineapple, passion ufruit, and classic jamaican funkiness. The taste starts with subtle hints of coconut, no vegetal or grassy notes at all, more tropical fruit, sugar cane sweetness, and heat that fades into a smoothness that lingers and coats the throat. This is probably the best white rum ive ever tasted. The higher ABV% has kick but its not harsh. Its actually refreshingly smooth. Probably great as a mixer or a sipper.
