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.
Pussers has grown in me as probably my favorite sipper on the rocks, reason? it’s delicious and that’s it! I could go on about the slightly funky pot still nose and the smokey Demerara flavor but in the end my taste says it’s a 10! I have tried a LOT up to $100 4square etc, but this in my opinion is better:)
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!
Really nice complexity here, some bitter, some sting, some oak and a nice mix of burnt sugar and caramel. Highly recommended for a conversation starter and a nice sipper.
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.
One of my absolute favorites. Interesting mingling of wood, brown sugar, funk, and a finish that goes on forever.
The original and in my view best Navy rum. Quite a floral nose with tones of leather carry into treacly stewed stone fruits in a long full bodied finish. Awesome in Tiki cocktails. Painkiller and Grog this way please!! :-D
