  • Black Tot Master Blender's Reserve

    Blended Traditionalist Rum

    70cl / 54.5%

    Black Tot Master Blender's Reserve

    Deliciously complex rum inspired by the Royal Navy’s tradition of perpetual blending, in which new casks would be added to older batches to create constantly evolving blends. At the heart of this release is a parcel of Black Tot 50th Anniversary that was filled into ex-Sherry casks for further maturation. This reserve was then married with rum from Jamaica, Barbados, Guyana and Trinidad – all aged between nine and 24 years. Also in the mix is a proportion of Australian rum, a first for Black Tot. The resulting blend has all the depth and richness we’ve come to expect with an added layer of citrus peel and tropical fruit.
