Pusser's Select Aged 151 Overproof Navy Rum Description
As your nose approaches the glass of this, you’ll realise why it is called Overproof. This Pusser’s Selected Aged 151 is produced as cask strength, similar to how it was shipped to the Royal Navy victualling yards in England for blending and dilution. This blend was aged for a minimum of three years in ex-bourbon barrels, but more than that, it has kept rigidly to the Admiralty Regulations for rum in 1970, which just so happened to be where a daily recommendation of rum was no longer to be given to the sailors. Now we aren’t doctors, commanders, or admirals, but we do think modern-day sailors might have missed out if this is what they could have been drinking! This is of the punchiest spirits we offer at The Whisky Shop.
This rum is presented at a truly eye-watering 75.5% abv, it goes without saying we think a little dilution may be in need.
Nose: big swathes of demerara, marzipan, cinnamon, cigar box.
Palate: full, syrupy, spicy, fruit, leather, dried sultanas.
Finish: warm, smooth, long.
