I finally opened the thing. What good is stashing away valuables anyway, if you cannot enjoy them at all? On the rare occasion of my cousin having fully recuperated, from a traffic accident. The smell was heavy and aromatic, lingering for a very long time, post the pouring a serving in our glasses. Other people in the same room could smell it too, even at a short distance. A charming, captivating fell, overpowering your senses momentarily. First sip... We both got suprised! Despite the 54,5%, it was silky smooth, with a velvety feel, being well received in the mouth. Strong wood, invading smoke and colourful, playful, fruity notes, were all there, married happily in the small sip! Paired with high quality professionally prepared espresso on the rocks, from premium Nicaragua batch variety, it was the most blissful sensation ever, throughout my rum voyage, up to now. The oily feel of the "dirty" Caroni, was actually noticeable, even though it was my (our) first time, drinking anything that contains some! This is a trully premium product and at a funny price, too; got it few months ago, for something less than 134 bucks! It was fully worth it and even more! The aftertaste wouldn't go out, not even its intensity; 2 hours later and i could still feel the rich taste in my mouth and a pleasant, soft burn in my throat. This has to be one of the top shelf rums, for every rum-person out there! Will try to find more bottles of the stuff, asap!
Dřevo v hořké čokoládě, latté, oříšky, banán, sušené ovoce, vanilka rozinky. To všechno je v lehkém hávu esterů. Mi to připomíná Worthy. Dochuť příjemná.
Like this bottle alot. The nose is great with candied apple, plums, sweet pipetobacco, tar, black pepper and caramel. The taste is very balanced og considering the vol. a little less explosive then expected. There’s lot’s of caramel, chocolate, black pepper and a bit of wet wood and spices on the lingering finish.
While I'm a fan of the navy style rums and Black Tot in general, I was not expecting to love this one as much as I did.
On the nose it's very complex with both floral/fruity notes but also spicy with tobacco. The first sip is spicy with tobacco but then gives away to more fruity notes of chocolate and some fruit.
Each time I taste this rum it adds even more complexity so I would recommend getting a bottle if you can find one.
When I tasted my first sip of this rum, i thought I was in rum-heaven. It is full of different aromas, and I simply can't tell them all. When I read that this was a limited edition, I just had to buy 2 more bottles.
Ok so I really wanted to like this because it’s a blend of 9 unique rums some of which don’t exist anymore including Caroni but it’s a rancid version of a foursquare, heavy banana vibe.
What a powerhouse.
Dark golden colour, Dark chocolate, baking spice, leather, wood oils, treacle all in the nose. On the palate there's pepper, chocolate, a slight burnt treacle flavour as well, vanilla and cigar tobacco also feature pleasantly.
If you can find a bottle, get it, it's a delight.
2 oz sample of Black Tot 50th Anniversary rum is all it took to convince me that I need to find 2-3 bottles of this beautiful rum. Unlike many of you I cannot describe all of the components that I am tasting BUT I can vouch that this blend is right up my alley. At 54.9% ABV this rum is an easy and so flavourful drink, that rivals with the best rums I have tasted. The aroma is wonderful and so is the lingering taste in my mouth. Absolutely a “10” for me.
Et suverænt godt blend af ikke mindre end 9 forskellige rom. Den har lidt af det hele, god smag, mange nuancer og lidt bid. Rigtig god.
Nose: It starts off with deep aromas of star anise, bay leaf, and maple syrup which then give way to light yet rich fruitiness: prunes, cranberry juice, a touch of orange zest, and sweet star apples. Brief jabs of latex. It has a restrained funk in the form of acetone, warm tobacco, old pineapple chunks, and almost the smell you get from having the windows down at a gasoline station. Curiously, the development is not linear; the spice at the arrival periodically circles back, sometimes leading to layers of sauteed ginger, diluted sesame oil, and turmeric. I can spend such a long time nosing this.
Palate: This rum is two-faced. It hits the ground running, leading with strawberry jam, figs, tamarinds, and a very subtle brine. A mix of tobacco ash and Food for the Gods (a Filipino baked desert made with dates, walnuts, and buttery dough) guide a transition into polished wood, tart pineapple, and steamed saba banana. Then, it momentarily calms down with raisins, light wax, and muscovado before a final spike of bitter cacao nibs and coarsely ground coffee shows up. The mouthfeel has a light oiliness. After a while, more of the fruits take center stage yet are steadily accented by black olives.
Finish: Dry and long; dark chocolate first, followed by banana peels.
