Dark Rum
Bottled By Elixir Distillers 70cl / 46.2%

With free branded copper Black Tot Gill Cup whilst stock lasts.

Black Tot is a dark navy style rum commemorating July 31st 1970 - a sad day for the British Navy, when the last rum ration was issued to serving seamen in the Royal Navy. Ever since, 31st July has been known in naval quarters as Black Tot Day.

Elixir Distillers previously bottled Black Tot Last Consignment, which was a blend of the final stocks of original old Navy rum. With reserves of Last Consignment now running low, Elixir have produced a replacement Black Tot in the form of this fine Navy style dark golden Caribbean rum.

Black Tot combines elegant, rich flavours from Barbados and Guyana with the bold character of Jamaica, with both pot and column-distilled rums in the blend. This multi-layered rum is unsweetened, un-chill filtered and bottled at 46.2% ABV for extra punch, with tangy citrus and deep treacly molasses flavours making this perfect for an officer class rum and coke.

Tasting Notes

Official Tasting Notes

Nose: Thick and fruity, with pineapples, bananas and freshly-removed banana peel in a chamois leather bag. Golden syrup, brown sugar and funkily sweet sugar-cane juice peek out from behind the fruit, with a touch of polished oak following in their wake.

Palate: Rounded and rich, with butter toffee, banana cream and caramel to start. Gentle cinnamon and allspice build, with more fruit – baked apples, pineapple cubes and dried mango – joined by coffee, bittersweet dark chocolate and a grind of black pepper.

Finish: Chocolatey mocha coffee fades, leaving roasted bananas and a tingle of anise.

Comment: A versatile blend, showcasing the best of Barbadian, Guyanan and Jamaican rums – fruity, rich and funky.
