It’s possible to find the Gunpowder Proof in three different blends. The oldest one consists of rum from Guyana, Trinidad and Barbados. After that it came with a blend of Guyana and Trinidad rum. The latest one just consists of different rum from Guyana. The one I review here is the latest one. I think it’s quite complex with a good balance between sweetness and dryness.

Sweetness feels more well balanced in this higher proof ABV bottling.

I love Guyana rum, with its typical notes present here. The nose is lovely. Fruity and spicy. on the palate you notice that its rather young as its a little sharp indeed, but still a little woody. Finish is long with molasses forward and also chocolate

Really enjoyable and great value, though I have a slight preference for the Black Tot at this price point for a navy rum.

My first rum from British Guyana is the alcohol is very present as well as the coffee. The wood is badly melted. I don't know if it's because of the sugar but very nice length in mouth.

My go to navy proof of the demerara variety. Well integrated burnt notes, powerful flavor but never overwhelming. A controlled explosion of sorts. Needless to say an excellent choice for cocktails.

We are well in the world of Demerara and Navy! It is fat with notes of bitter cocoa, spices and nuts with burnt wood. It is indeed a heavy and powerful molasses rum just in the nose, the navy side is well marked with a solvent and metallic side. Gingerbread softens and tempers the blend. Taste: It has character with its 54.5% rather full-bodied, strong and dry. Power and roundness. We are of course almond, cocoa, walnut but also prune and banana ... The side of roasted nuts is quite pleasant with gourmet spices.

With this rum must be mentioned first of all the PLV: for its price it is unbeatable and can not disappoint at first actually.The nose comes very spicy, dark and woody hence; together with its name I feel a bit transferred to the deck of a pirate ship. Together with a very sweet note (molasses?) Very inviting, I think. Also very spicy on the palate, though also alcoholic and less complex and inviting than the nose. For the price, nevertheless, top and also for various recipes a good choice, liquid as solid!

Very full bodied and prominent on the palate I have to grab a new bottle for the painkiller. Big brother of its standard diluted counterpart. I love smell of guyana rum, especially pusser's. For me the smell is better than taste but that does not mean it's bad. It's all about raisins, cocoa, chocolate and caramel in the nose as well as taste. The taste is sweet but comes with a power of 54.5% abv. I have rated Original Admirality at 68 so I have to go a bit higher with this undiluted one- 70

Pas désagréable. Le degré élevé lui donne un peu plus d'intérêt que la version réduite mais ça reste très orienté sucre et caramel.

Easy on the palett, but no real depth

The smell and taste are strikingly different!
16 April 2021
A strong dark smell, dark chocolate, fruity, coffee, a little alcoholic, very pleasant.Also in the taste is dark chocolate, spicy, slightly woody.A very pleasant rum.

Nice nose of wood and spice with notes of chocolate and vanilla, in the mouth we find the nose well integrated 54.5 degrees, short length pity. Good value for money.

Frankly confusing in the pure English style but it's not my thing

Sample no.24 of the 24 days of rum calendar 2022. Sweet, strong and spices. These pot stilled rums are more intense on the nose and me personally find it very hard to distinguish the aromas. Palate is a kick in the teeth at 54,5% abv. and is full of spice, wood and esters. A bit of licorice notes and a warm burn in the end.

Long bitter finish
29 March 2023
Fairly light nose, aroma of new sneakers and other plastics with a hint of wood, and coffee after it opens. Palette: strawberries! Undeniably strawberries, with a hint of nut brittle, and some sharper notes. Very nice. Relatively thin viscosity. Very short finish, strawberry bubble gum after it’s been chewed too long. Fun and uncomplicated. No regrets at the price.

This is a wonderful example of a demera rum ... Beautiful at full proof .. lovely chocolate and sugar notes
