Black Tot is a modern take on an old style of rum, inspired by more than three centuries of naval tradition. Bringing together the core components of British Naval rum, Black Tot is fresh and fruity spirit that blows the cobwebs off the stylebook. Rather than the rich and dark style of the past, Black Tot layers elegant and fruity Barbados rum with rich and full-bodied Guyanan and funky Jamaican to create a rum that marries tropical fruit tones with a rich undercurrent of chocolate and coffee.Tasting Notes (1)
Black Tot Style
Inspired by 300 years of Navy tradition, Black Tot holds Caribbean rum at its heart, using some of the finest examples from Barbados, Guyana and Jamaica to create a rum for today. Unhindered by convention, we have turned Navy rum on its head – replacing the singular, sweet styles of the past with a multi-faceted, unsweetened rum that focuses on flavour.
Home to the oldest rum distillery in the world, Barbados is famous for its elegant and fruity rums that are perfect for both sipping and mixing.
Guyana produces some of the world's finest sugarcane and intense, full-bodied rums that have been the cornerstone of Caribbean blends since the 18th century.
Heavier in style, pot-still Jamaican rum utilises longer fermentation times and proprietary yeasts to create its distinctively big, funky flavours.
- Dark Chocolate
Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
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.
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.
Chocolatey mocha coffee fades, leaving roasted bananas and a tingle of anise.
A tasty and versatile blend, showcasing my favourite bits of Barbadian, Guyanan and Jamaican rums – fruity, rich and funky.
More from Black Tot
Absolutely love this stuff, Im a big rum fan & was so looking forward to this. This is lip smackingly good, very moorish. The fact that it's non-chill filter & a higher strength gives this rum turbo charged quality. This is perfect for cold winter nights, being so dense yet full of flavour - there's a gorgeous tropical funk about it laced with a fruity lightish liquorice. An absolute joy! Personally I enjoy it neat with a dash of water.
Nice gift box and shaped bottle, but that is about as far as it goes. The rum was astrigent and needed the addition of water to tame its taste.
