This section contains the very darkest of rums - not rums darkened solely by long ageing, but Navy rums like Pusser's and Demerara rums made nearly black by a combination of age and added caramel or molasses.
Black Tot is the marrying of the last consignment of official British Navy Rum - squirrelled away in stone flagons after the abolition of the rum rations on Black Tot Day, which occurred on 31st July 1970. Now at last, this remaining navy spirit has been discovered and is now available to the general public for the very first time.
Reserva Limitada is Ron Zacapa's annual release. Selected by master blender Lorena Vazquez, this is a blend of reserve rums aged between 6 and 24 years in a combination of sherry and charred American white oak casks.
Another stunning full proof rum from renowned Italian independent bottlers Velier. Produced using the French Savalle Still (a four column metal still dating from the 18th century), this is a complex sweet and spicy rum with notes of liquorice and dried fruits.
A very potent cask strength rum from Guyana's famous lost distillery Enmore - this special bottling is comprised of eight casks from the distillery's final distillation in 1995. Thankfully Enmore's legendary wooden pot still lives on at Demerara Distillers's Diamond distillery.
This is an exceptional blend of Martinican agricole rums aged for up to 30 years. The maturation takes place in 200 litre casks. A delicious sipping rum which is presented in a beautiful cristal carafe.
Bottled from the Last Consignment of stock of Royal Naval Rum, which had been hidden in storage since Black Tot Day in 1970 - when the official rations ceased - Black Tot is a true piece of rum (and naval) history. Rumfest Golden Rum Barrel Awards 2010: Best European Rum
