Pusser’s Select Aged 151 Navy rum is the “Green Label” Pusser’s – bottled at “cask strength”, as it was shipped to the Royal Navy victualling yards in Deptford, Gosport and Devonport for blending and dilution “to Proof”. It is still produced in accordance with Admiralty Regulations for Rum in effect at the time of the custom’s termination in 1970.
The blend is aged a minimum of three years in once-used ex-Bourbon casks and chill-filtered to further enhance its flavour and smoothness. Full-bodied, with notes of syrupy spice and fruit, leather, dried sultanas and soft oak, the aroma is a burst of classic Demerara with marmalade, marzipan, cinnamon and tobacco. This overproof rum is very strong at 75.5%abv, so try with a few drops of water or an ice cube which will help open up the aromas and flavours. If you are brave, drink it neat, but take care! 70cl.
