Black Tot LC

Forty years after Black Tot Day in 1970, the day when the British Royal Navy's 300 year old practice of daily rum rations stopped, the Black Tot Last Consignment gives us insight into the history of rum and Naval traditions.

Royal Navy rum had been imported from the West Indies since 1784, although the Tot tradition began in 1655. Black Tot Last Consignment is made with the last remaining stocks of Royal Navy rum, which had been stored away in stone flagons since July 31st 1970 when the last call of "Up spirits" was heard.

This piece of history has been beautifully bottled at 54.3% abv and comes with a Tot cup, similar to those used in the days of daily rum rations, a wooden display case, a rum ration card and a book about the history of Black Tot, written by rum expert Dave Broom.

Please note: during transit, it's very possible that the bottom of the lovely presentation box will bear a scratch or two. Fear not though, friends, the precious liquid within will remain unharmed!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Deep with vanilla, black fruits, liquorice and leather.

Palate Sweet and oaky. Notes of coffee, fruit cake and a good hit of spice.

Finish Tobacco, wood and just a hint of fruit.

Overall History in a bottle. Who knew history tasted so good?

Reviews for Black Tot Last Consignment
A unique piece of history - bottled
Well I have had my eye on this for a while but could never justify the cost. I tried a sample of it, once tasted I was whipped back to prior times. It's a great rum, deep in flavour, easy to drink despite its strength. Licorice, black treacle, fruity and all a dark rum should be. I want more but it will stay sealed unless I get bought another bottle, then another, then another.

Got the sample but bottle is for collecting
After buying a bottle elsewhere for collecting purposes I decided to get the sample as a treat for my sample calendar and also to prevent me opening the bottle which in hindsight it was not the best idea...

I blind tasted it along with various other samples I got for my calendar, on the nose is old tarry rope, leather, smoke, the smell actually made me reminisce about being on the deck of HMS victory which I have visited many times as I am local, I pictured the dank, smokey conditions during its operational years and this reflected in the nose.

The taste was fruity and smokey, plenty of molasses and leather notes.

The finish was oaky and smooth, with smokey vanilla.

Is it worth the price? As a drink, no but I don't think any drink is worth the £650 I spent on the bottle, however, this is bottled history and I am glad I bought the bottle, wished I didn't get the sample though as now I am even more tempted to open the bottle!
