I am so happy that I choose this rum for a New Year celebration. First of all a story about the rum itself:
''The British Navy were the original rum blenders, marrying together flavours from around the world to create something served to every sailor, every day. This bottling, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Black Tot Day, is a tribute to their original blend, bringing together some of the great lost rums of the past with the amazing modern distillates of today. Every cask used has played its part in making a rum that we believe people will want to drink every day.’' - Oliver Chilton, Head Blender
The blend includes following:
28% 12y Demerera Distillers Savalle Column
27% 9y Demerara Distillers Savalle Column
6% 10 y Port Mourant Wooden Pot
0.5% 42y Uitvlugt Port Mourant Wooden still
15 % 11y Foursquare

0.5 % ORIGINAL ROYAL NAVY BLEND 👏
Nose is Caramel glazed apple tart, Citrus, Barbecued Pineapple and grape, balanced by notes of chocolate and raisins.
Palate is Liquorice, vanille, lime cocoa with mint bananas and walnuts.
What an interesting blend 1 of 5000 in total.
On the nose it is pretty much grandma's cake, but it is real complex when tasting it. A great blend of rums, giving you an outstanding taste without a storng burn at the end. The proof is just right. This became one of my favorites. It is worth the higher price.
I'm generally not a big fan of dry rums, and this is a bit on the dry side, but I enjoyed it.
Smells and tastes of molasses, oak, spice, licorice, charred sugar, and a hint of tea. Not super to my taste, but not bad at all.
Note - I had a chance to try this side by side with the Black Tot Royal Navy (Last Consignment), and I prefer this one!
I am in the process to decide wich rums to bunker while they are still available/accessible/affordable. This is why i asked Vomi for some samples. Since i had only 10cl of this juice ill keep my review short and will update it later. Because this is definitely something i will purchase more than the usual 3 bottles. However i still liked Veliers Tiger Shark more. (Cant wait for their 3rd release...) But this release is anyway a 10.
Blend nicely summarized above. Very complex - I don't have the palate or vocabulary to describe as others have, but this is delicious.
Simply amazing. I bought it after I read the fat rum pirate's review and his placement of this rum as Rum of the Year 2020... it lived up to my expectations.
Ticks all the boxes.
Phenomenal rum tasting with Falcon91Wolvrn03 continued onwards with Black Tot 50th Anniversary. Sturdy bottle is surrounded by quite a cheap looking label. Mahogany color. Mixture of 9 different rums, so there's plenty of great hits and some big misses. Contains 0.5% of the volume the real Black Tot and another 0.5% of 42 year old Guyana Uitvlugt super rare rum. Unfortunately the strongest flavors are coming from a rather cheap Hampden Jamaica 9y old with only 8% of the volume. Very dry and woody ending.
My score on this breakfast tasting is 9.5 all day long .Everything I'd hoped for perfect for my tastes I'm so pleased !
I've bought 5 bottles of Rum around this Price range this year and this is the best out of all of them by far . Balance is perfect they have done a great job ! Thank you OLIVER CHILTON
I took a calculated Risk based on some of the reviews on this site and bought 2 bottles Price ranges £99 -£150 for the same bottle I paid £99 each in Scotland .
