A ration of Rum no Navy will dare to take away.

It's a known fact that sailors and Rum go together like... well, like sailors and Rum. And the British Navy provided their seamen with endless rations of Rum for centuries - until the infamous Black Tot Day in 1970, when the Navy abolished the generous Spirit allowance. Nine years after the Naval Prohibition, Charles Tobias obtained the rights and the recipe, and established Pusser's Ltd. in the British Virgin Islands. They have been producing fine Rums since then and their Gunpowder Proof Rum is one of the latest additions to the roster and a lovely naval reboot.

It's a traditional Royal Navy style Rum, produced at original Admiralty strength. That means if mixed with a few grains of gunpowder, this Rum should ignite like a firecracker. If Pusser's Gunpowder Proof is any indication, the sailors of Her Majesty lived a good and dangerous life out in the sea. And it's one hell of a punch, too. The aroma itself will kick you to attention, while the oak and molasses will spice up your day. But it's not all rumble and tumble with this one. There's a sweet and soothing embrace of vanilla and honey waiting for you, if you stick around long enough. So, God save the Queen and this bottle of Rum.

Rum (usually) comes from molasses; the sweet and syrupy residue left behind after sugar crystals are extracted from sugar cane juice. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, which can contribute to the final flavor.

Ratings & Reviews
Despite a proof, a sipable rum that also makes a wonderful rum old fashioned
The only way to make a true Painkiller.
High alcohol - very fiery - not smooth l. Better as a mixer
This rum is great when paired with a top-shelf cigar. It is very smooth with a strong finish. I have ordered this twice so far. You will not be disappointed.
Full bodied. Molasses. Toffee. Honey. Nutmeg. Beautiful dark rum.
First things first, I like the experience. A good amount of punch, the extra strength balances the intense flavor. But. Drinking any amount of this rum is a guaranteed hangover for me. No other liquor does this to my body, but even half a finger of this one the night before ensures I'm decommissioned until at least noon the next day.
Not normally a rum guy but I was going to a friends house for a party. They liked rum so I got this to take along. Long story short, I took it to the party and gave it a try. Holy cow! Nice flavor, a bit strong but it's 109 proof so I get that. Every one who tried it loved it including me. I got a second bottle for the house.
Great old school flavor sip or mix enjoyed will be a repeat purchase 👍🏻
Good drinking rum , take it with ice very smooth.
Notes of caramel, raisin, date, and fig up front with vanilla towards the back end.
This is just good. The taste has "weight" to it. This is just a tick behind the Larga Vida for me in overall flavor.
A great addition to my home bar! The flavor is heavy with dried fruit and molasses. This is a dark rum and floats well atop real ginger beer (I prefer Reed’s or Goslings). The proof at 109 provides some heat for sipping but not up front. The flavor of fig and cane stays for awhile after... If you like rum or heavier liquor, check it out. If you’re thinking about rum, be adventurous! Flaviar ‘s Price point is a fair one.
It is a very good cane liqueur from the Caribbean (previously known as Blue Label) is a higher proof traditional British Naval rum, produced using the blending recipe from the Admiralty. It opens 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 for an incredibly long & dark finish.
