This rum is for sipping like a fine cognac or single malt whisky. It is best enjoyed around 13 Celcius. It's aged not only for 15 years in wood, but has also been distilled in wood. It is the world's only rum, or for that matter the world's only spirit, that is still predominantly distilled in wood using the old, expensive, inefficient, handcrafted way in opposition to the modern column distillation.
Background: For more than 300 years, from before the days of Admiral Nelson, wooden ships and iron men, the sailors of Great Britain's Royal Navy were issued a daily ration of Pusser's Rum. This tradition, one of the longest and unbroken in the history of the sea, carried forward from the year 1655 to July 31st, 1970 when it was stopped. The Navy's rum issue gave birth to an especially flavourful kind of rum called Navy Rum. Naturally flavoured, Pusser's is the original Navy Rum, still produced in accordance with Admiralty Regulations for Rum. This superb rum, a Gold Medal Winner, is the same rum that was issued in the Royal Navy. A substantial royalty from the sale of each bottle of Pusser's Rum is paid to the Royal Navy Sailor's Fund - referred to as the "Tot Fund" - which provides amenities for serving personnel.
