Rum molto particolare. Non posso dire che è un buon rum, ma è pieno di curiose sorprese olfattive. Secondo me rende meglio al naso che alla bocca. Al naso molte sfumature, al palato prevalgono caffè e caramello ben tostato con una flebile nota boscosa. Finale medio con prevalenza di caffè. La banana che ho sentito in maniera leggera al naso è sparita al palato. Rum divertente per una degustazione fuori dagli schemi.

This rum saw the light of day when Pusser’s looked over its range some years ago. Before the “Blue Label” was available in a version with a 54,5% ABV. This stronger rum was then renamed “Gunpowder Proof” and the new “Blue Label” gained a strength of 40%, or 42% in some markets. Over time its been found in various blends. Initially with rum from Guyana, Trinidad and Barbados. Then with rum from Guyana and Trinidad and finally nowadays it just contain rum from Guyana. The one reviewed here is the latter. Overall it’s a quite rich and full-bodied everyday rum that is very good value for money.

Wirkt wie ein junger Rum aus Guyana, der noch zu stark mit einer beißenden und stechenden Alkoholfahne daherkommt. Riecht recht scharf zu Beginn, hat ganz kurz an einen scharfen Senf oder Kräuter erinnert :-D Typische Noten sind aber schon zu erkennen, wie der unverwechselbare holzige und röstige Schoko-Karamell-Frucht-Mix. Im Mund etwas dünn und mild, wenn dann etwas würzig und süß, aber auf jeden Fall röstig und schokoladig. Im Abgang süß, fruchtig und röstig.

Dieser Rum war mit einer der ersten die ich je getrunken habe. Leider muss ich sagen hat sich mein Geschmack mittlerweile so verändert das mir dieser mittlerweile nicht mehr so zusagt wie früher. Aber er ist immernoch gut und für Einsteiger geeignet die sich langsam vom Zucker weg trauen wollen

Such a classic. Color: Classic deep golden hue Nose: Classic demerara goodness, slight burnt notes, pipe tobacco. Mouth: A far more balanced and even-keeled profile to many other demerara’s who often have more outspoken burnt tones. Spice, dried fruit (raisins especially) and the touch of burnt dark wood. Finish: Outstanding and longish finish with a very welcome uptick in flavor strength to finish off your sip. Pusser’s original admiralty rum with the 100% Guyanese content and bottled at 40% is one of those classic treats as a rum lover. It will remind and reinforce in you why you love rum so much. A staple in my rum collection. Excellent both as a sipping and cocktail rum. Recommended for any rum cabinet.

Mein Mixrum für Tiki-Drinks. Im Vergleich zum El Dorado 8; Geruch viel ausgeprägter nach verbranntem Rohrzucker und weniger Holzig. Geschmack milder und süßer; ebenfalls weniger Holz.

solider Mix Rum!

Ein recht fruchtiger Geruch, auch würzig und holzig im weiteren Verlauf, etwas dunkle Schokolade. Toffee, würzig, etwas dunkle Schokolade, recht trocken im Abgang.

Bon rapport qualité-prix pour un Guyana adapté aux cocktails gourmands 🙂🙂

Great Carmel nose. Earthy when in a drink. Very grounded tasting.

Sweet toffee

Aldehyde am Anfang. Die Schärfe im Mund entwickelt sich. Wird immer schärfer. Mittlerer Körper, würzig und trocken. Aber erstaunlicherweise keine Köstlichkeit, ganz im Gegenteil zum Pusser‘s 15y.
