Notes on Black Tot Master Blender's Reserve...
While comparisons with the inaugural release are inevitable, the Master Blender's Reserve is not simply a slightly older version of last year's 50th Anniversary rum, but a different composition altogether. Different countries, still types and ages have contributed with Head Blender, Oliver Chilton opting for a 'fruitier' expression. It also celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the last rum ration given to the Australian Navy after separating from the Royal Navy, although Australians serving on British ships could still receive rum - in 1921 this was also forbidden. Adding substance to the sentiment, 6.7% of the blend is from Beenleigh Distillery (ten years aged in Queensland and four years continentally). At its heart is the 'perpetual' base spirit (14% of last year’s 50th Anniversary release), re-casked into ex-sherry butts and blended with rums between 9 and 24 years old from Guyana, Barbados, Trinidad, Jamaica. These make up the majority of the blend. 6000 bottles are available globally, however Australia's allocation will be closer to several hundred. Decanted from the casks with zero added sugar and no chill filtration. 54.5% Alc./Vol. 95 points
Flor de Cana Reserve 7YO (1000ml)... A nicely integrated and elegant sipping rum to enjoy on its own. 40% Alc./Vol. 90 points
Flor de Cana Centenario 12 Year Old Rum (1000ml)... Satiny, with roasted nut and cocoa flavours, followed by vanilla wafer biscuit and a gentle peppery warmth. 40% Alc./Vol. 90 points
Flor de Cana Centenario 18 Year Old Rum (1000ml)... More opulent than its younger siblings but consistent with the house style which is all about grace and restrained power. 40% Alc./Vol. 92 points
