Pusser s british navy rum

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.

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

I compare all the rums I drink against Pusser's. I love this rum and it hosts so many memories. Cheers!

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.
Et genkøb.

This rum is unbelievably good for its price.
Quite unique taste and aroma. Lighlty reminds whiskey with smoked rags aroma, but taste is lightly sweet with oak notes.

I just love the... well lets call it a smell... of these navy rums. Something like the old sailor´s stinky socks being put in the rum cask. This rum is different and its pure... and if you keep it standing for a while yo discover some more tones, like figues.

Give it a try... and if you want a smoother one, go for the 15-year Nelson´s blood bottle.

Det her er en spitze rom - især til den pris! En af de første jeg smagte og et sikkert genkøb når flasken er tom

Standard rum in any liquor cabinet....great for mixing with pineapple juice.

Wonderful value for the price. This rum has enough complexity and smoothness to sip neat, perhaps with splash of water; yet, stands up well with some old-fashioned spiced cola (Pepsi 1893) as well. Taken neat, there's a big, strong burnt caramel, butter and a spicy finish. There's some prune, raisin, molasses and diesel fuel buried in the flavor profile. Endlessly interesting.

A good rum but shows no qualities/refinements from their aging process/years of fame and fortune.
Great in their Painkiller
I would appreciate it as a gift but would get my rum rations elsewhere.

This is my go to when making tropical drinks. This is the rum used the The Painkiller at The Rum Bar in Key West. Still a little to harsh and missing the sweet flavor I'm looking for when drinking on the rocks.
The search for the perfect sipper continues

A strong rum that warms your soul but to the expense of a looker room taste in the middle but all in all land on the sides of the tongue

Bought it as a sipper, but will use it as a mixer. Strong alcoholic taste, rather complex, but hard. Doesn't play for me even if I normally love hard rum.

Ikke min smag men er en god og ikke sprittet rom som holder hele vejen?

Good taste, average colour. The best to cocktails.

Námořnická klasika z Britských Panenských ostrovů. Mám ho moc rád.

I have been sipping Pussers neat for 30 years. The last bottle has a sickening burnt sugar aroma and taste. Think of grossly over cooked blackened caramel. Attempts to contact Pussers with batch numbers has gone unanswered. This bottle was distilled in Guyana.
They don't seem to be interested in feedback.

Complex Rum with reminds me of dryed fruits. Ideal for Mixing sweet Cocktails. Sipping if you can handle the burn. Great Value for Money!

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.

Good enough to sip but an excellent mixer. Coconut, butterscotch, dried fruit and packs a little punch. I didnt think water changed it all that much. Short finish.

A bit too much alcohol on the front end to stand on its own as a sipper, but Pussers is ideal for cocktails.
