A classic British Navy style rum, Pusser's Gunpowder Proof rum has rich notes of treacle, toffee, honey and vanilla throughout the palate, alongside oak, cinnamon and ginger. Taking its name from the naval tradition of providing sailors a daily ration of rum, distributed by the Purser – or Pusser. The Pusser would dispel any complaints of watering down the rum by wetting a pinch of gunpowder with the rum and attempting to light it. If the mixture ignited it was "proof" that the rum was strong enough.Tasting Notes (1)

Tasting Notes by Simon Difford for Class Magazine
Clear, dark coppery amber with burnished copper highlights.
Pungent molasses, treacle, toffee, honey and vanilla with oak, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.
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.
Long finish with burnt caramel, spice, cold tea and prunes.
More from Pusser's
The pussers rum evokes memories of drawing the daily tot of rum back in 1970. Happy days!
Really nice rum nice & smooth
Gorgeous stuff. First sip always catches me in the throat a bit, but then it just gets smoother. A really satisfying rum to savour.
The gold standard. A simply amazing tot.
This is a splendid, unique rum and a nice change from others. Does it actually have gunpowder in it?
