Black Tot Rum - The Last Consigment

The name ‘Black Tot’ stems from July 31st, 1970 when a 300-year-old Royal Naval tradition ended at precisely 6 bells in the forenoon watch (11 am) when the last rum ration was issued aboard ships of the British Royal Navy – a day to be forever remembered as Black Tot Day.

COLOUR; Bright, yet deep mahogany cut with flashes of ruby.
NOSE; Initial treacle notes precede dark chocolate with super-ripe black fruits, muscovado sugar and walnuts. A drop of water releases notes of black banana, licorice root, tamarind paste with an exotic edge of balsamic.
PALATE; Starts off thick and sweet, becoming light and oaky before a burst of cassis/crème de mûre then espresso and cacao.
FINISH; Very long with light scented wood, black fruits and cigar tobacco.
STRENGTH; Remarkably, after 40 years, Black Tot is 54.3% (94.2° proof), almost exactly original issuing strength.
