British Navy Pusser's Gunpowder Proof Rum (Caribbean) 750ML
Producer Notes: Pusser’s ‘Gunpowder Proof’ is a traditional Royal Navy style rum produced at original Admiralty strength and in accordance with the Admiralty’s blending recipe last used when the Royal Navy discontinued its daily ration on 31 July 1970.
Clear, dark coppery amber with burnished copper highlights. On the nose, pungent molasses, treacle, toffee, honey and vanilla with oak, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Full-bodied with a more enhanced flavor profile than the lower proof Blue Label. Long finish, and despite its strength, smooth and mellow.
Tasting Panel, 93 Points: "This 17-century-style British Navy rum is a history lesson in a bottle: the ship’s “pusser” (purser) once doled out the sailor’s ration of rum, and gunpowder was used to prove the strength of the alcohol (hence “proof ”). Smooth, rich with flavors of toasted orange rind, tamarind and brown sugar; lush and powerful; long and balanced."
