Aged Caribbean Rum, Black Tot

Aged Caribbean Rum, Black Tot

In 1970, British Parliament decided to end the age-old practice of rum rationing in the Royal Navy and the last official day of rationing, July 31, 1970, became known as “Black Tot Day”—the day the rum died. Anything left of the navy’s rum supply was stored and utilized only for special occasions.

In 2010, Sukhinder Singh purchased the last of the navy’s remaining flagons of rum to create a commemorative blend known as ‘Black Tot Last Consignment’, and years later he followed it up with ‘Black Tot Finest Caribbean Rum’, created to continue the legacy of this rum-blending tradition and introduce it to a wider audience, showcasing some of the best and most historic Caribbean rums still being produced today.

Tasting Notes

Black Tot Rum is inspired by the historic rum blends of the British Royal Navy and showcases some of the best Caribbean rum distilleries in operation today. The blend is comprised of the following molasses-based rums: 40% Guyanese pot & column-distilled rum, aged 3–5 years, 35% pot & column-distilled, 5-year-old rum from Barbados, 20% unaged Guyanese rum distilled on pot & column, and 5% high-ester, Jamaican pot still rum, aged 3 years. Each aged rum was matured in ex-bourbon casks in its country of origin before blending, and the final mixture sees no added sugar or coloring and is not chill filtered.

A nose bursting with ripe, tropical fruit introduces a round and rich palate of gentle baking spice, coffee, baked apple, and dark chocolate. Roasted banana and a hint of anise linger on the finish. Perfect for sipping and an exciting addition to your cocktailing arsenal. 46.2% ABV
