Pusser's Rum Aged 15 years - This is a SUPERB bottle of rum, really special!
97014 Pusser's Rum 40%, £49.99
Classic Boat magazine said, simply: "GORGEOUS!"
Like all Pusser's, it is distilled in the original Admiralty (UK Navy) wooden pot stills - a process that is not very efficient by modern standards, but also one that imparts a unique authenticity and taste, described by FORBES magazine as "the most full-flavoured rum available anywhere".
There is nobody else today who makes rum, or indeed any other spirit, by this method. And this limited production version is further matured in oak barrels for 15 years, for an even smoother and more mellow taste: it is equivalent to the finest Cognac or Brandy in every way.
Astonishingly, 93% of the original spirit - the so-called "angel's share" - evaporates during the ageing process, so it actually takes the equivalent of 16 standard bottles to create just one of these. As you would expect of such a finely crafted product, to mix it would be a waste; it is for sipping unmolested, ideally slightly chilled at a temperature of about 13-16C or 55-60F.
The alcohol content, at 40%abv, is lower than standard Pusser's but be warned it is very, very drinkable...
