I saw a Pussers tasting event advertised & thought 'I do like Pussers, I'll have me some of that...'.

Here's my home version:



The more drinks with Coco Lopez I drink the more appreciate it as an ingredient. If you like Pussers, the Painkiller is a good drink - the cinnamon / nutmeg come across nicely.

Pussers 15 year really is the good stuff IMO, it's on my list to buy a proper bottle but I'm enjoying these reasonably priced miniatures til I do an online order.

As I'm nearing the bottom of my Pussers Blue label, I think I'll miss it when its gone.

The questions is do I go for a normal bottle of blue label or one of their decanters?

A decanter is 3 or 4 times the price of a bottle of Pussers. I have a Pussers hip flask & a miniture decanter which I could sell to lessen the shock of the cost... More rum or a cool decanter?

Or I could buy a used decanter from eBay?

Decisions, decisions

Ad, is your Pusser's Blue the 84 proof or the 95.5 proof? We haven't been able to get the 95.5 here for years, I miss it.

Having a Yamashiro's Zombie from djmont's book. This one is not half bad. The recipe calls for a dark 151 Jamaican rum that I sub'd for with the moderately overproof Smith&Cross, and I think it works pretty well.

Neither - its the 109 proof (54.5%). That's the common one in the UK.

Seeing as my blue label is nearly 57% (at 54.5%) I usually use a 1/2 to a measure less than a recipe calls for, it still has pep.

My opinion matters little but: I think Pussers should cut the different proofs of their basic stuff (I know of 4 now) & just produce one 'navy strength' one (114 proof aka 57% & flammable).

Pussers is so distinctive & stinky (in a good way) ~ it's not like customers will say 'nah, its too strong now' (or be unable to work out fractions to use an amount they prefer). Probably people (like yourself Sunny&Rummy) would actually like to get their hands on a 'navy strength' version - variety is a good thing but that would be in keeping with the history of navy rum.

However, the 15 year could stay 80 proof / 40% ~ its officers rum

Yeah, the worldwide gamut of the Pusser's portfolio and the limited availability of so many of their expressions is frustrating. I am a big fan of the 3 versions I have tried.

Drinking a Jet Pilot now, and might need to mix up another.

I have a friend over. First a Kahiki Kai. Followed by a Fink Bomb. Both simple, yet tasty, and good candidates as "gateway drinks" to introduce newcomers to cocktails made with fresh ingredients.

Mexican coffee topped with muddled cream and nutmeg on a cool California evening. Used Trader Vic’s Kona coffee liqueur instead of kaluau so technically is it a Hawaiian coffee?
Btw, I’m down to my last bottle. TV’s coffee liqueur was discontinued last year-too bad cuz I liked it mo betta than Kahluau.
Cheers

Oh happy daze! I mean nights. While searching for my scattered everywhere mini mugs/shooters to show on “collecting tiki” I came across an unopened bottle of T V’s Kona Coffee liqueur.Almost as good as finding a bottle of Zaya!
Cheers

The Rum Cow is tasty, basically a New Orleans Brandy Milk Punch with dark rum in place of the brandy. Shake up an egg and some nutmeg with it and you have a killer egg nog too.
