BLACK TOT 50TH ANNIVERSARY
This special commemorative limited edition blend has been created to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Black Tot Day. In this release of just 5000 bottles, you’ll find a marriage of rums from the four cornerstones of the Royal Navy blend: Jamaica, Barbados, Guyana, and Trinidad. Bottled at full Navy Issuing Strength, discover rums from demolished distilleries and ancient stills, and even the remnants of the historic Navy Rum blend itself.
Nose: Firstly, cinnamon sticks, sprinkled with nutmeg, toasting in the oven. Caramel-glazed apple tart, with a citrus touch. There is also barbecued pineapple and grapefruit zest, balanced by notes of melting chocolate raisins and freshly ground Jamaican blue mountain coffee. Lastly, a hint of well-aged spirit emerges, reminiscent of dusty books in a historic library.
Palate: At first, the palate is almost overrun with liquorice sticks and vanilla bean paste. Lime juice married with 80% cocoa dark chocolate appears, slowly deepening to brandy-poached pears. Dried mint and tarragon are married with bananas and walnuts.
Finish: Long and lingering, with flavours of mint-chocolate-chip ice cream and soft liquorice, dipped in sherbet. A whole-milk latte, topped with cream, dissipates to leave a pleasant dryness, leading to another sip.
