Rum and the sea are inseparable, and no rum is more akin to the sea and the seaman than is British Navy Pusser’s Rum. For more than 300 years, sailors of Great Britain’s Royal Navy were issued a daily ration of rum by the Purser (corrupted to 'Pusser' by the Jack Tars). From 1655 until the traditions termination on August 1st 1970, 'Pusser’s Rum' was one of the few daily comforts afforded those early seamen of Britain's Navy as they fought across the globe to keep the Empire intact and its sea lanes open. British Navy Pusser’s Rum is the same blend of six West Indian rums as discovered during the Navy’s expeditions and served on board Their Majesties’ ships for three centuries. Today, it is still blended in accordance with the Admiralty’s exacting specifications of 1810. Pusser’s Rum was never sold or offered to the public, and if a rum connoisseur managed to acquire a tot or two, he saved it for a very special occasion.
British Navy Pusser’s Rum is expertly blended from some of the world's finest Caribbean rums. Amongst x-seamen, the consensus is that Pusser's is about as close to the authentic British Royal Navy Rum as one can obtain. Spirit connoisseurs claim Pusser's to be more like a fine brandy than a rum, with a full, rich flavour and a rare smoothness - a true sailor's delight! This is essentially a sipping rum, however its unmistakably full, rich flavour will shine through anything you care to mix it with.
Tasting note: [42% Alc./Vol batch tasted] Deep gold / copper colour with a gold hue. The nose is restrained at first offering woody, resinous scents, but is worth spending some time with to cajole out the complex aromas of liquorice all sorts, brown sugar, citrus zest and pine nuts. The rich, spicy palate offers flavours of clove, vanilla bean, juicy raisins, honey and nutmeg. Pure, smooth and gently warming. Long aftertaste of honeycomb, toffee and liquorice all sorts with a subtle, drying cocoa fade. A well poised dark rum - full flavoured without becoming over-sweet or fat.
Other reviews... Deep amber color. Rubber sap, marinated vinegar, caramel taffy, ad brown spice aromas. A round entry leads to a glycerous off-dry medium-to full bodied palate with sherried brown spices, mineral spirits, roasted Brazil nuts, cedar, and toffee. Finishes with a touch of shellac, exotic peppercorn, and very spicy heat. A very hearty, traditional navy rum.
