Pusser's Gunpowder Proof Rum

Pusser’s ‘Gunpowder Proof’ is a traditional Royal Navy style rum produced at original Admiralty strength and in accordance with the Admiralty’s blending recipe last used when the Royal Navy discontinued its daily ration on 31 July 1970.

Gunpowder Proof: Prior to the invention of the hydrometer, the Royal Navy ship’s “Pusser” shutdown claims of watering down sailors’ daily tots by dousing a bit of gunpowder in the rum and attempting to light. If the mixture ignited, the rum was “at proof.” If it didn’t, the Pusser might find himself tossed to sea.

Alc/Vol: 54.5%

Color: Clear, dark coppery amber with burnished copper highlights

Nose: Pungent molasses, treacle, toffee, honey and vanilla with oak, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger

Body: Full-bodied with a more enhanced flavour profile than the lower proof Blue Label

Finish: Long finish, and despite its strength, smooth and mellow

Really enjoy this sipper. Like everything in the Buffalo Trace lineup, it's a winner. Bottled in bond sets the bar, this one exceeds it in flavor and smoothness. Combine with Chip's fast shipping and careful packaging, it's a sure thing.

Excellent

Fast service , thank you !

Best bourbon I’ve had in quite a while.

Reminds me of Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year.
I’ve been searching for this nice since 2016 and surprising I found it online @Chip’s. Great customer service, fast ( and inexpensive) shipping. Bottles arrived well packed and secure. This is my new go to shop to order liquor!
