World's Best Dark Rum - 2014
World Rum Awards
The nose is full of dried fruits, dates, prunes, slightly overripe figs. The palate is very sweet, plenty of dark, syrupy, stewed fruits. An interesting pot still character with a pleasant muddiness. Full-bodied. The finish is incredibly long and dark.
Joined navy 1954, drew tot from age of. 20, dischard Jan 1970, and now 75 years old still having daily tot (neatters) but find this world beating rum exspensive but doing my best. Idefy you to find better.

Takes me back to my Naval life 1944 to 1950. There
is No other rum like it. Wonderful to still be able
to 'Up Spirits' properly.....Pincher Martin
I've been buying this from Master of Malt for a few years now and always buy two bottles at a time so my darling Dad is never disappointed at Christmas or on his birthday. He has always been a rum drinker but this brings an extra special twinkle to his eye. Thank you for your professional and speedy service and best wishes and a great bit thank you to you all at Master of Malt x

just got two bottles of Woods 100,obviously I like rum,There are one or two which match the strength. Pussers is great,but getting hold of it takes time,and woods is slightly cheaper.Still *up Spirits* stand easy the holy ghost.Ex RN

One of the top three rums I've ever tasted, other two being zafra 21 and el dorado 21. Massive toffee and raisins, toasted marshmallow, orange peel, maple syrup, sweet sweet sweet big, but gentle enough to drink neat.

This is the same tasting rum that I drew when in the Royal Navy. As good as it gets, only no "sandy bottoms", just as many time around the buoy for 'Queens' as you like.

First tasted back in 1998 whilst serving in the Royal navy out in the west Indies. Many a good matelo fell foul to it's superior taste on a run ashore. best rum (apart from kraken) i've ever tasted "Splice the main brace" and treat yourself to the Grog.

I've had maybe 20 different rums and this is the strongest one yet but not the tastiest. Wow, it is definitely a must try for any rum lover. It's good but not one that I'd do regularly. Full of flavor and a massive nose! Try at your own risk. An experienced rum drinker's rum, for sure.

As the title suggests i like a good whisky but this Pussers Admiralty issue really stands high in both taste and value ... look no further this is as good as Rum gets

once tasted never forgotten

Despite its strength drink it neat. Its smooth sweet and flavoursome and tastes of molasses. (the sugar product, not the burrowing mammals bottoms). Seriously this is a great value rum, try it, savour it! Enjoy! If they drank these tots at Trafalgar no wonder the English won!

After many years in the navy my husband is still saying this is the best drink he has ever tasted

This rum is fantastic, but it only truely shines, I believe, if it's watered down slightly. Without water there is a distracting sulphur to the palate and finish. With water it's exceptional.

Nearly forty years in the Royal Navy, drew my tot for 4 years before it was discontinued in 1970. This is the only rum for me.
10th November 2011
Not a rum person but this is the first rum I have actually liked straight. Has a great oak taste with dark burnt sugar sweetness. I Like it.
17th July 2011
after 16 years in royal navy having drawn my daily ration when i was 21,I have never found another rum to match this one. None of the other rums with the wording navy on them have ever seen the navy. i served 1954 to 1970 and pussers was the only rum issued. its the best.
