Until July 31 1970, it was normal for every seafarer in the British Navy to get a daily ration of rum. On ththis day this ritual ended so this day is known as Black Tot day. The history of Black Tot rum started 11 years ago when bottles of traditional Navy rum were discovered in an English marina. The bottles contained rums from Jamaica, Guyana and Barbados, which therefore have not been touched for more than 40 years. In 2011 these bottles of the historic rum were rebottled and launched on the market as “Black Tot The Last Consigment”. The new rum – simply “Black Tot” – pays homage to the moment that changed everything. However, the Black Tot is a creation for modern rum connoisseurs! The traditional Caribbean style was used to create a recipe that contains the natural fruit flavors of Barbados, added depth through the full-bodied Guyana rums and intertwined with the vibrancy of the Jamaican rums. The new Black Tot is a complex rum that knows how to stand out from other rums. An enjoyable, repeatable taste experience – a rum you will never forget!

In the nose, the copper-colored rum immediately invites you on a tropical journey: pineapple, melon and a feast of Caribbean sweetness. Deep-fried banana with ginger and cinnamon, Jamaican plantain tards, overripe mango, creme brulee and candied lemon slices rise with honeysuckle blossom and eucalyptus.
The palate is much drier than the nose suggests, with orange peel and tannins from the oak barrels. The syrupy texture is intertwined with aromas of intense espresso, but then produces sweet ginger cakes, clove, black pepper and warm cardamom rolls. There is also a hint of baked bananas, licorice, burnt caramel, juicy honeydew melon, nectarines, pimento berries and coconut.
The finish is long-lasting and rounded off with more tropical fruits, completed by chilli jam, masala chai and vanilla.
