Description

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Black Tot Day, a commemorative limited edition of Black Tot blend has been created.

In this release of just 5000 bottles, you’ll find a marriage of rums from the four cornerstones of the Royal Navy blend: Jamaica, Barbados, Guyana, and Trinidad.

Bottled at full Navy Issuing Strength, discover rums from demolished distilleries and ancient stills, and even the remnants of the historic Navy Rum blend itself.

With a carefully-chosen balance of rums from across these countries and distilleries, as well as a nod to the last consignment of the Navy Rum blend, Black Tot 50th Anniversary Rum is a fitting tribute to Black Tot Day, with an incredible medley of flavours and origins.

Each year will see an evolution of the Black Tot blend, using the previous years’ rum as the base.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Cinnamon sticks, sprinkled with nutmeg, toasting in the oven. Then a deep richness, akin to caramel-glazed apple tart, with some citrus elements rolling in. There is also barbecued pineapple and grapefruit zest, balanced by notes of melting chocolate raisins and freshly ground Jamaican blue mountain coffee.

Palate: A combination of liquorice sticks and vanilla bean paste. As the flavours coat the mouth, lime juice married with 80% cocoa dark chocolate appears, which slowly deepens to brandy-poached pears. A backbone of dried mint and tarragon is married with natural sweetness and a touch of nuttiness, in the form of bananas and walnuts.

Finish: Long and lingering, with flavours of mint chocolate chip ice cream and soft liquorice, dipped in sherbet. The rich flavours of a whole-milk latte topped with cream dissipate to leave a pleasant dryness, leading to another sip.
