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.

The Black Tot 50th Anniversary is a blend of nine different rums (see photo) that were allowed to store between 9 and 42 years. Highlights are certainly the small parts of Caroni and the original Royal Navi Rum. The anniversary bottling honors the Black Tot 50 years ago. The blend was bottled without dyes, filtration and in barrel strength of 54.5% alcohol. There are 5000 bottles. The design is timeless and classy. All parts of the blend are listed on the bottle. The wax seal fits into the overall concept.

The rum is heavy and oily in the glass. In the nose, the rum is directly super complexe. The 8% Hampden are immediately there and give the rum the fresh fruity touch. Hampden is so strong in the Nose. But there is also a lot of sweetness and dark chocolate. The high Guyana proportionals are recognizable. But also wood, vanilla and burnt walnuts resonate. Fruity and sweet notes alternate. A touch of mint also resonates. Absolutely fantastic.

On the palate, the rum is incredibly full-bodied and pleasing. Balanced, you forgets that this rum has 54.5%. The alcohol does its job perfectly and pushes the flavors. Chocolate, raisins, candied fruits, vanilla, a touch of cocoa. Again, the 8% Hampden are clearly recognizable. Fermented fruit. On the finish line, the rum becomes even more spicy and the long stored rums join in. Lots of barrel and wood influence. Some liquorice and more nut. The rum stays in the mouth for a long time with typical oaks as well as sweet milk coffee.

The rum is an absolute highlight for me and deserves a medal in my opinion. A perfect blend. Who has the money should buy it. I can clearly recommend. It is not sweet but also not too dry. He is right to the point. Simply delicious. I bought a bottle directly. Thanks for the opportunity to try the rum first.

Der Black Tot 50th Anniversary ist ein Blend aus neun verschiedenen Rums (siehe Foto) welche zwischen 9 und 42 Jahre lagern durften. Highlights sind hierbei sicherlich die kleinen Anteile von Caroni und dem Original Royal Navi Rum. Die Jubiläums- Abfüllung ehrt den Black Tot vor 50 Jahren. Der Blend wurde ohne Farbstoffe, Filtration und in Fassstärke von 54,5% Alkohol abgefüllt. Es gibt 5000 Flaschen. Das Design ist zeitlos und edel. Auf der Flasche sind alle Anteile des Blend genau aufgeführt. Das Wachs Siegel find ich hier super und passt in das Gesamtkonzept.

Der Rum ist im Glas schwer und ölig. In der Nase ist der Rum direkt super komplex. Was auffällt, dass die 8% Hampden sofort klar erkennbar sind und dem Rum die frische fruchtige Note gibt. Aber auch viel Süße und dunkle Schokolade ist dabei. Der hohe Guyana Anteil wird deutlich. Aber auch Holz, Vanille sowie gebrannte Walnüsse schwingen mit. Dabei wechseln sich fruchtige und Süße Noten ab. Auch ein Hauch Minze schwingt mit. Absolut fantastisch.

Am Gaumen ist der Rum unglaublich vollmundig und gefällig. Ausgewogen vergisst man das der Rum 54,5% hat. Der Alkohol macht seinen Job perfekt und pushed die Aromen. Schokolade, Rosinen, kandiertes Obst, Vanille, ein Hauch Kakao. Auch hier sind die 8% Hampden klar erkennbar. Vergorenes Obst. Zum Abgang wird der Rum nochmal würziger und die lange gelagerten Rums machen mit. Viel Fass und Holzeinfluss. Etwas Lakritze und mehr Nuss. Der Rum bleibt lange im Mund mit typischen Eichen sowie süßen Milchkaffee Noten. Wahnsinn.

Der Rum ist für mich ein absolutes Highlight und verdient meiner Meinung nach eine Medaille. Ein perfekter Blend. Wer das Geld hat sollte hier zugreifen. Kann ich klar empfehlen. Er ist nicht süß aber auch nicht zu trocken. Er ist auf den Punkt genau richtig. Einfach lecker. Habe mir direkt eine Flasche gekauft. Danke für die Möglichkeit den Rum zu probieren.

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.

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.

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.

There is many already written here in other reviews about the brand or particularly this Anniversary release here. What I really like is the transparency about the blend, no additives or sugar added. And the blend is really master one. I can find lot of fruits on nose as well on taste, chocolate, black tea, coconut and vanilla tones. Just a tones, nothing overhelming to push out the complexity. Sweetness is again just a tone, it exists mostly in after taste. Otherwise it is more dry type (real) rum. The alcohol volume is right where you expect to be. I really love this setup. What a master peace to blend it in this way.

In conclusion it is very strong and close to perfection (9.5) therefore I update my rating after couple of tastings compared to others.

I have to get couple of bottles into my collection as this is limited release of 5000 bottles and in our country it already starts to be gone. Go for it until you can.

I'm looking fwd try the successor from 2021 Black Tot Master Blenders Reserve. According the producer "We took some of last year’s Black Tot 50th Anniversary Rum blend as our base, re-casking it into ex-sherry butts and barrels, to which we added layers of fruit-driven flavours using different styles of rum". And I believe it will also not bad. Once bottle will arrive, I will share my findings more in details as there is no much info about it yet.

In the end, cheers in new 2022!

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.
