Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Simon Difford for Class Magazine

    Appearance
    Clear, dark coppery amber with burnished copper highlights.

    Aroma
    Pungent molasses, treacle, toffee, honey and vanilla with oak, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.

    Taste
    Full-bodied, and despite its strength with mellow medley of flavours: molasses, treacle, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, toffee and espresso, all given structure by a garnish of oak.

    Aftertaste
    Long finish with burnt caramel, spice, cold tea and prunes.

    A truly excellent rum which offers more complexity than many of the best spiced rums I''ve tasted. As a drinker of single malt scotch whiskies, I can see why this is called the ''single malt of rums''. Tasting notes: The nose is overwhelmingly alcoholic (not surprising with an ABV of 54.5%!) which gives way to hints of biscuit, clove and diesel fuel. There is a sweet, rich palate where raisin and molasses feature most prominently, with undertones of port wine and butter. The finish is spicy and reminiscent of clove and black pepper, leaving a lingering warmth at the back of the throat.

    The best rum I have tasted. It is the nearest to Royal Navy Rum in my opinion.

    I was first introduced to this on my c.d''s course as a young diver in the Royal Navy by the warrant officer as a reward for passing one of the latter stages. 16 years on and it''s still an amazing ration. Sandy bottoms !!!

    First tried this rum in 1991 in San Diego. Love at first taste! I like mine neat in a brandy glass. Everyone I've ever introduced this rum to has equally high praise.

    When I was drinking genuine navy rum on a daily basis I found that Wood's 100° was practically indiscernible from the real thing. At 57% proof it's stronger than Pussers too, although Pussers does come a very close second.

    Thanks for the reviews. Parent was serving during WW2 and I am getting this for his 90th birthday. Hope he lets me try it!

    Bang! Take that you scurvy land-lubber! Very powerful flavour. How anyone could describe it as "light and smooth" is a complete mystery. It's neither. An archetypal navy rum. If someone ask you what rum tastes like, this is it. Has a real boozy burn to it but also reasonably complex and interesting. When I'm a pensioner I intend to be regularly found sitting in the corner of a seaside pub drinking this.

    After sixteen years in the navy I have found another rum to. Match pussers. Best in theworld.
