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.
On the nose very a strong, dried fruitiness, mainly raisins, with a clean alcohol punch. Once in your mouth, not nearly as harsh as it smells like it might be. While not my preference as a sipper, it's not bad for that. As a mixer it's clean and versatile. While not high on my list, I'd not hesitate to pick up more when I find it at a good price.
I compare all the rums I drink against Pusser's. I love this rum and it hosts so many memories. Cheers!
This rum is deep, complex, powerful, and surprisingly good. Heady, oaky pot-still aromas fill your nostrils. There is the harshness of youth without any alcohol smell. The mouth is prickly, oaky, with some caramel, but is delightfully dry. Somewhat reminiscent of Havana Club Selección. The finish is short.
This rum is a delight—great in cocktails, fantastic neat. And a great deal! Too bad they sugar the gunpowder and 15-year version :(
At our last Naval reunion this was used at TOT time for our ration. It was just like the rum we were once issued and is definately not a sipping rum. It must be mixed as regulations demanded. I find the price is too high for the rating.
Finally got around to reviewing this excellent, funky pot-still classic. The full-flavored Guyanese component makes this an especially delicious sipping rum, best served neat. Reminds me a lot of single-cask Demeraras, but less intense and much less hot. A very smooth and savory rum, on its own and in cocktails.
A smooth, richflavoured rum, with a firm, spicy nose. A great sipper, with a mild spicy burn, filled with oak, caramel, and some baking spices. Surely got some references to "the black tot, the last Consignment", but at a lot more affordable Price, making it hard to choose from 1 bottle black tot or 27 bottles of Pusser's! Or NOT! The Pusser's worth every penny and get an extra bottle in This rating for the affordable price.
After getting this bottle as a gift I was glad that I didn't spend the $80 on it. We Canadians get hosed with taxes)-; Thats not to put it down because I really like it, but only save it for the odd occasion when I can tell my favorite person how much I love her. The woody flavours soaked into this one well. Sweet with a short warm finish...Definitely a sipper for me
the heat warms your very soul, the dry sharpness bites the back of your throat as a tear comes to your eye. God save the Queen!
Got the 40% version for around 20€ and a good value. Strong but not harsh, surprisingly cheap. Rum how it should be, in my opinion. Makes me want to try the 15yo version later, what is why I give onyl 9/10. The best I got in the 20€ area so far.
Nice aver color. Nose with hints of dried fruit candy and dates. Medium legs on glass. Mild sweet fruity flavor with minimal afterburn. The finish is somewhat short. I was not expecting greatness but it turns out this is a very pleasant good sipping rum.
Pussers is an original rum. I like to mix with coke a cola our make the famous pain killer with it.
Vild rom, med en stor smag med høje procenter.
Har rigtig meget glæde af at stå 30min. inden man hopper ombord i den. Overraskede mig positivt, da Jeg endelig fik den i havn.
One of my absolute favorites. Interesting mingling of wood, brown sugar, funk, and a finish that goes on forever.
A piece of history that will always be in my collection.
Ester rich, pungent pot stilled perfection. Stewed fruits, brine and spice.
The bench mark for Navy rum.
I only left a star off because the overproof is really the authentic deal but it's the same rum just with less water added.
Love this in a Painkiller like they do in St John and Tortola. Have tried others in this cocktail and mothing beats Pussers. A little too harsh for sipping but when you want to kick up a punch or a mai tai this is great rum at a ddcent price point in New England ( 24$ 750ml)
Has some nice flavor of baking spices, oakiness and on the dry side. Best mixed in cocktails, however, if you choose to drink it neat, add an ice cube and let it breathe for 10 minutes or so to intensify the fruity aspects of this rum and downgrade some of the alcohol and harshness.
In my circle not a lot of people know about this product but I have seen a lot of positive reviews online so I finally purchased a bottle and gave it a try. Wow! It has a strong taste without being overbearing, one can taste a lot of different spices with an underlying sweetness like brown sugar & a really long finish that is very similar to a lightly spiced cinnamon roll. It really makes you want to come back for more of that finish, My next priority is to try the Pusser's 15yr, if it's any better than this it is truly exceptional. I mostly drink rum neat & rarely mix so that's how I rate them but for all the mixers out there, I think this rum has the strength to mix well but I would be careful what you mix with, the best part of this for me is the finish so I would avoid coke as it seems to me it would kill the finish.
Good dark navy rum. Pretty strong, good for mixing, not so tasty neat.
In my youth, I took a cruise in the British Virgin Islands. Since then, this has been my go-to. It has body and authority. I largely drink it with tonic, which lets its character shine through. A solid, everyday rum.
Sweet woody aroma. Treacle. Molasses. Dried Fruit. (dates,raisins.prunes). Vanilla. Mixed Spice.
Long finish with sweet baked spice tones.
Works best as a mixer, ideal for cocktails- affordable at around £26.
It's a sweet rum with lots of flavor in the beginning going down little hard but you get use to it
This is amazingly distinctive and some of the best sipping rum for the money in the world, period. You won't be disappointed for the money you've spent.
A fine tasting rum. Nice smoothe complex flavors with a caramel texture.
