Pusser's Navy Rum
70cl / 40%
15 Year Old
A recent bottling from a historic brand, the original of which is based on the recipe for the official rum that was given as a tot to sailors in the British Navy. Pusser's is traditionally dark and strong, however this version is a more standard 40% abv. A bargain for a rum of this age and provenance.

As a whiskey drinker, I am seriously impressed by the depth of the aroma and the smoothness of this rum. I can see why they call this "the single malt of rum". There are few rums that can approach Pusser''s quality and none that surpass its glorious history.
Purchased from this site. This rum was the transition for me to drinking neat and searching out the excellent. Just bought another 2 bottles.
Normaly I''m a German malthead. But I also like to have a few bottles of rum in the bar. After once tasting this one I''ll never buy any other rum. This stuff in my opinion is the best rum to have.
Out of the over 20 types of rum I've tried, Pusser's makes it to #1 for me, in both taste and fascinating history. I'm just after a shot of the 15 year old stuff and I try to save it only for special occasions, but I'll allow one more this evening. Cheers! To Pusser's, to Nelson's Blood, to Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson, and to the British Navy! Here's a neat shot to ye! The ONLY proper way to enjoy Pusser's in my humble opinion ;)
My 90 year old father-in-law drinks this neat....he also likes the 15 year old.....what an old sea dog.
I do not remember my tot ever being like this,,, smoooth
Quite sweet tasting, fruity, with a mild bitterness. I find the taste and aroma somewhat unusual compared to other rums (angostura, havana club, black seal, and a demerara rum of some sort). I managed to get hold of a couple of minatures, and although quite interesting, i dont think i'd buy it again anytime soon.
A really tasty rum! Smoother and better flavoured then the normal Pusser's rum; the ageing makes all the difference!
For a 15 Year old Rum it is smooth and very drinkable. Like the younger one it tastes of burnt sugar and treacle.
