Pusser's Gunpowder Proof Bottling Note

Pusser's 'Gunpowder Proof' Black Label (previously known as Blue Label) is a higher proof traditional British Naval rum, produced using the blending recipe from the Admiralty. Well loved, it picked up a Trophy at the International Spirits Challenge 2016.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

The Real Deal

Aye, it's not bad....as my old fella said. This means, as a RN AB, joined in 1947,had his first tot in 1950, in Buenos Aires, I believe, this must be good stuff. He's not let me have a sniff of it though, the tight old git ;)....Up Spirits!!!

Pusser's Rum- Gun Powder issue

Absolutely love this. Being an Old Salt, one cannot compare this issue with any other Rum. Would love to order some. Is there a process where this can be done

Great rum, what rum is supposed to be, the best thing the Brits ever made, so I raise my glass of "Nelson's blood" in honor of 300 years of tradition and the salties who brought us this golden nectar!

"Nelson's Blood"

I must have had at least ten years of legal tots of rum during my 22yrs service and this is up to the best I have tasted.

Should Have Joined the Navy . . .

Usually drink single malts or bourbon but thought I'd give a rum a try. Always liked a Lambs Navy with Coke but this stuff is far too good for mixing! First impressions on the nose were similar to a Speyside; lots of dried fruits, fig, date etc, burnt sugar and caramel. Nice thick mouth feel and I was pleasantly surprised by the smoothness. Didn't need to add water, even at this strength! Really impressed with this.

The best of the best

Not a rum lover, but absolutely love this stuff. About to order my third bottle thanks to an old matelot friend of mine. Thanks for introducing me to this stuff Hendy!!!

A drop of 'Nelson's Blood'. brings back memories of tot time......Sippers, Gulpers and Sandy Bottoms!

Ex Royal Navy..

Remember having the Blue Label Pussers Rum on board ship during "splicing the main brace" where the celebration of the official birthday of HM Queen Elizabeth was conducted. Those not accustom to the taste would offer it to others, or have it with Coca Cola.... (sacrilege to the pure taste and warm feeling it gave)

Absolutely superb, ordered my second bottle.

Rum Rat's dream

Having experienced drawing my tot (2in1) in the Royal Navy no other rum comes close or matches it like Pusser's. Still have my daily tot (Pusser's of course), only not as much as we were given back in the Sixties. Here's to the greatest Royal Naval tradition that was, Cheers!

I prefer Pussers to any other. Up spirits

8th May 2015

Great rum

Top rum this nothing else really matches it.

31st December 2014

Welder Dave

Best rum I ever drank and the only rum that doesn't make my nose hairs curl or stomach turn. This is by far the best rum ever. Cheers to 300 years and many more, keep up the good work,

Rum Bosun - Bude RNA

By far the best proprietary "TOT" available.......luckily we have a sympathetic supplier and reduces his profit as much as possible. We get through about 12 - 15 bottles per year, all dished up from an old "small ships barrel" (that leaks) so have to have a bucket inside LOL

ex po seaman

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.

Bob's Favourite!

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

30th October 2013

Mr

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

Vicky

My Dad was in the navy in the sixties; he thinks this is the best rum. Enjoy a drop of Nelson's blood at tot time!

13th August 2013

mr

first tasted in korea
still going strong.

25th July 2013

Mr Mymic

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.

12th July 2013

Bunts1157

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.

2nd June 2013

Nedster

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.

1st May 2013

s ubmariner

best rum ever only drink it neat

21st April 2013

Strong

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.

29th March 2013

mr Single Malt

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

20th January 2013

mr d. chirgwin

once tasted never forgotten

23rd November 2012

Take that Napoleon!

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!

4th August 2012

Mrs Norman

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

6th February 2012

Add some water you crazy fool

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.

31st January 2012

Mr

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

I Like it.

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

mr

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.
