Not like any other I have. Nose of mixed fruit with a little sharpness. The taste also have some kind of fruit but the best thing is the taste of licorice with a twist of pepper. I like that it is not too sweet and gives me another experience than other Rums. It is probably an 8 than a 9 but I will give it the benefits of doubts.

Very rich. Lots and lots of molasses flavor from start to finish. Great mouthfeel, and smooth. Depth and body, and a long beautiful finish. Might not be a daily drinker because it is so flavorful, but works well for when you want something heavy.

Black Tot delivers very entertaining blend here. This rum delivers solid alcohol punch - with 46.2 % ABV this should not a surprise. The relatively young components of this navy style blend are apparent on the palate, but in an entertaining way, at least for me. There are molasses on the nose, mixed with tropical fruits and oak, on the palate the taste starts with demerara sugar, which is mixed with molasses and bitter tones of dark chocolate and various gingerbread style spices (anise, chinese anise, ginger, cinnamon), the taste continues with toffee and raisins. The finish is rather simple and dry, with a slight alcohol bite. The official site states there is no added sugar, and less than 1g/l from the barrel (sic). Overall, I like it very much, but in this price range I would expect a bit more matured blend than unaged, 3y and 5y, with longer and more complex finish. Score between 7 and 8.

The aroma is very sweet, caramel and sugar, heavy and a little bit sharp.
A heavy body, sweet at first, then more sharp but still nice. The finish is medium long.

Ve vůni je cítit ovoce jako ananas, mango a drevitost. V plné chuti je poznat cokolada a kava společně s pernikem. Závěr dlouhý s tónem ovoce zejména banánu.

Black Tot rum is a "Navy style" blend of Caribbean rum from Guyana, Barbados and Jamaica by Elixir Distillers. It's presented at a respectable 46.2% ABV.

On the nose we have ginger, honey, line zest, grapefruit, oak, vanilla, light strawberry and cherry.

The palate brings some vanilla, and the light strawberry comes through with some oilyness.

The finish is medium in length and has pepper, clove, walnut, oak, mint and is slightly drying.

I like a navy styled rum once in a while and this black tot, finest caribiean seemed appealing enough to warrant a purchase. I will start of by saying that it's not a spectacular rum, but decent for the money if your into this kinda rum. In the glass it's spot on amber and in the nose I get black tea, banana, raisin, burnt brown sugar, citrus and a little bit of musty oak and something remiding me of gunpowder residue. Perhaps comming from barrel char. It's actually a very, very nice nose, that makes me think of worthy park.
The taste however lags a little bit behind the nose. It's not thin, but given the complex notes, it could have benefited from a bit more body. I get subtle treacly molasses, tobacco, cinnamon, dark oak and anise with a bit of peppery hotness on the finish. A nice sipper nonetheless.

A light golden colour, cinnamon and orange smell with a hint of tobacco. Good flavour with the fire on the the throat.
