Black Tot returns! Named for 'Black Tot Day' (July 31st 1970), the date the Royal Navy discontinued daily rum rations, followers of the brand will recall the 'Last Consignment'. Retailing for around 1.5K and prized by collectors and sailors, it was created with stocks of authentic British Royal Navy rum, relics of which had been stored in stone flagons at various Army and Navy bases around the UK following the abolition of the tot.

This is the third in the Black Tot series to be released by Elixir Distillers. It's reported the team tasted twenty six different blends over two years before deciding on this particular expression. The final composition is made up of 20% Guyana unaged pot and column still rums, 35% Barbados 5 year old pot and column still rums and a 5% Jamaican pot still rum contribution, aged for three years.

Tasting note: Dark spices, raisin cake, molasses and dark chocolate aromas follow in a medium bodied rum with fruity / caney flavours of papaya, pineapple husk and sweet spice; finishes with bittersweet dark chocolate and hints of molasses cake. Authentic Caribbean style and flavour, but traditionalists might expect more punch. 46.2% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered and bottled without additional sweeteners.

Other reviews... Elixir Distillers have really hit this one out of the ball park. It’s an absolutely fantastic Navy style rum which easily competes with the likes of Woods 100, Pusser’s Gunpowder. It is a little less boozy at 46.2% ABV but it certainly doesn’t compromise taste wise. -
