Pusser's Rum Blue Label (Mini) 5cl
Pusser's Rum Blue Label
Pusser’s Rum is the original Royal navy Rum, distilled in wooden stills located in Guyana. It is the only rum blended to the Admiralty's exact specifications, a specification that was last used on July 31, 1970, ending a 300 year old tradition.
The blend is rich and full-bodied and aged for a minimum of 3 years in charred oak bourbon barrels. It is also exceptionally smooth due to its wooden 'pot stilled' heritage. These stills provide a deep flavour, having absorbed unique and organic flavours over many decades of use, something that a mass produced rum would struggle to replicate.
The rich flavour is all natural, with no added artifical colourings or flavouring and made using molasses, made from sugar cane grown in the "Valley of Navy Rum". This is the nickname for the Demerara River Valley, a region that once had 300 sugar cane estates, all of which had their own distillery, and an area celebrated for its production and distribution of sugar since the 1600's.
Pusser's Rum Blue Label is the original Pusser's Rum. On the nose, there is the sweetness of demerara sugar, molasses and caramel, with dried fruit and island spices. On the palate, these flavours are well rounded, leading to a long finish with a mild spicy burn.
