There’s a number of British based rums claiming heritage to the historical ‘sailors tot’ that was given daily to members of Britain’s Royal Navy.
Pusser’s Rum is one of them.
Using Jamaican Rum – a former British colony – is generally a given in these offerings which are usually a blend of Caribbean rums interpreting the original ‘tot’.
Pusser’s however stresses the use of pot still rum from Guyana blended with marks from Trinidad & Barbados to create their ‘Admiralty Rum’.
A very dark nose of rich molasses & treacly funk greeted me.
Smooth & sweet on the palate with dark muscovado sugars dominating.
A prickliness on the finish exhibiting a slight funk & departing with a drying experience.
Pusser’s made a suitable tipple to celebrate completing another section of the Fife Coastal Path in the nautically themed Ship Inn by the Firth Of Forth in Elie.
