Reviving the Tot.

In the days now long past British Navy Sailors enjoyed a daily ration of Rum, also known as a Tot. The Rum was issued by the Purser, a ship's supply officer, who was called Pusser in slang by the Navy sailors, thus, the name Pusser's Rum, e.g. the Rum given out by the ship's supply officer.
The tradition of daily rations, which, prepared the sailors for a face-off AND eased the pain of defeat, was one of the longest-established traditions in the British Navy, lasting from 1655 until 1970. The last Tot of Pusser's was drunk on board Their Majesties Ship on July 31st 1970, on, what is now known as Black Tot Day.

In 1979, almost a decade after the Black Tot Day, Charles Tobias obtained the rights to blend the naval Rum, and formed the company to distil the Rum according to the original Admiralty recipe. Over the decades Pusser’s Rum has become a favourite of many a Rum aficionado, especially, because it shares certain characteristics with a Single Malt Scotch.

One of their more recent expressions is Pusser’s 15 Year old Rum. It's a blend of Rums from Guyana and Trinidad, produced in century-old wooden stills, which heavily influence the blends, thus following an essential recipe instruction for a Navy Rum. Pusser's Rum is fermented naturally in open vats, where yeasts inherent in the environment ferment the sugar. Fermentation time takes 72 hours, and is done in three stages. This process adds to the finishing quality of the Rum.

Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof’.

Lawrence,
Sweet. Brings back memories of sailing the Virgin Islands. My wife even enjoys it and she hates rum. Oak and sherry. Ginger. Brown sugar. Caramel and cinnamon
 
Chris
Chris,
Feels like a cross between a single malt and a fantastic rum. Not too sweet, great complexity.

I love it, great rum. You can drink it as a shot and great mixer.

Jeff,
Live this Rum! Maybe it’s the English heritage. Tasting chart is spot on. Hard, Hard to find. Hopefully Flaviar gets it hands on some again.

Antti,
It is an outstanding 15 year old Naval Rum finishing very long & syrupy with dark spices.

Interesting fruity rum. Has a bit of a burn/bitter taste but the sherry is very noticeable.

Frank,
This is now one of my favorites! Although it seems hard to get. Very smooth and easy to drink. If you have not tried it, you don't know what you are missing.

Christopher,
O. M. G. This is the stuff pirates sing about. The only stuff I've had that comes close is the Havana Club Reserve. Don't mix it, don't even THINK about mixing it. Just sip it like your favorite whisky and your taste buds will thank you. I can't wait to get another bottle!

I found that I had to let at least 3/4 of the ice ball melt to make this rum easy enough to drink. Sorry boys. Didn't care for this one.

A wonderful rum; a smooth swallow, fruity and a bit sweet for my taste, but I wouldn't ever kick it out of bed. Great work here.
