Black Tot Last Consignment Reviews
Tasting Notes by Dave Broom
The Colour - Bright, yet deep mahogany cut with flashes of ruby.
The Nose - Initial treacle notes precede dark chocolate with super-ripe black fruits, muscovado sugar and walnuts. A drop of water releases notes of black banana, liquorice root, tamarind paste with an exotic edge of balsamic.
The Palate - Starts off thick and sweet, becoming light and oaky before a burst of cassis/crème de mûre then espresso and cacao.
The Finish - Very long with light scented wood, black fruits and cigar tobacco.
The Strength - Remarkably, after 40 years, Black Tot is 54.3% (94.2° proof), almost exactly original issuing strength.

History in a glass
A beautiful rum worth every penny. Bought two so that we could keep one and try the other. Must be had on ice.
