Spirit Master: Pusser’s Rum Aged 15 Years

29th January, 2020 by admin

Ahead of this year’s Rum & Cachaça Masters blind-tasting competition, we put the spotlight on a 15-year-old dark rum that grabbed one of the top medals in 2019.

Pusser’s Rum 15 Year Old was praised for its “velvety” texture

Every week, SB celebrates some of the top scoring Master medallists from The Global Spirits Masters blind-tasting competitions as part of our Spirit Masters series.

As we approach our Rum & Cachaça Masters competition for 2020, we present a product that stormed to success in last year’s blind tasting.

The competition took place at The Rum Kitchen Carnaby in London in February, and saw the breadth of the category come under the scrutiny of four judging panels.

Pusser’s Rum 15 Year Old was one of eight Master medallists in The Rum & Cachaça Masters 2019

Pusser’s Rum 15 Year Old was one of eight Master medallists in The Rum & Cachaça Masters 2019.

The bottling impressed the panel with its “velvety” texture and swiped the Master title in the Dark Rum Aged Over 13 Years flight. “I love the buttery popcorn flavour of this rum,” said one judge. “There’s a subtle funk that I really like too.”

Made in small batches, the expression is produced from Guyanan rum aged for at least 15 years and bottled at 40% ABV.

The name dates back to when sailors in the British Navy would be given a daily ration of rum by the ship’s purser.
