Black Tot Royal Navy

United Kingdom | Aged

Black Tot Royal Navy Rum is a blended, aged rum in that had been stored for 40 years in stone flagons by the British Royal Navy. The rum is part of the last rum ration served to British Royal Navy sailors on July 31, 1970 when the 300-year old tradition of a daily rum ration, or "tot", ended.

Until recently when 1000 bottles were made available for public sale, Black Tot Royal Navy rum was reserved only at British Royal weddings and State functions.

I always thought that the rum given to the navy back in the day would have been fairly rough and when they went bleary eyed and said it was the best rum ever, there may have been a hint of romanticism there.
After tasting I have to admit this rum is like no other.
Heavy nose of molasses, treacle and winter fruits folowed by spice and coffee on the palate.
There is also a lot of oak all the way through to the finish, but this is a heavy rum and holds it well.
One for a special occasion as it comes with a fairly hefty price tag, but it is a remarkable piece of history you're buying along with an amazing rum.
