Pussers Blue Label Original Admiralty Rum 40% ABV - New Blend 70cl
The new 40% bottling. The Pusser's Rum collection has had a bit of a revamp. While their Blue Label is still made with the exact same blend of rums - a recipe from the Admiralty - it is now bottled at 40% abv rather than 54.5% abv. The reasoning behind this, is it allows Pusser's to be distributed to Naval bases, where the maximum allowed strength is 40%.
The colour is a rich mahogany, though clear.
The aroma is a burst of classic demerara with a wonderful mix of brown sugar and molasses with notes of leather, tobacco, dried sultanas, nutmeg, clove, and cassia. Finishing with soft oak, caramel, and rich English toffee.
Pusser’s full, rich flavour is all natural, no flavouring agents are added. It is the only rum whose flavour is sufficiently distinctive to be savoured through the ingredients of just about any cocktail. If you're looking for the original 54.5% version, then fear not! It has now been rebranded Pusser's 'Gunpowder Proof' Black Label.
