BLACK TOT Last Consignment


On July 31, 1970, a 300-year-old tradition came to an end. On this day, the very last ration of rum was served to sailors aboard Royal Navy vessels. Known as “Black Tot Day,” it remains etched in memory forever. This Last Consignment, distilled in pot stills and column stills, and bottled at its natural strength, is the result of blending rums produced in the 1940s in British colonies (Barbados, Jamaica, Guyana, Trinidad). Preserved in stone jars since December 1970, under customs supervision, it was unveiled on July 31, 2010. A single sip transports us back in time aboard the HMS Bermuda, one of those vessels.

Tasting Notes

Colour : Aged gold with orange highlights.

Nose : Vibrant and resolute. Of absolute classicism, it conjures images of aged wood paneling, the richest Cuban cigars, and the most delicately powdered spices (saffron, ginger, cinnamon). It evolves to roasted peanuts, greengage plums, and rhubarb jam. The citrus notes it imparts are caramelized, as are the apricots. Yet, it retains an exquisite freshness.

Palate : Noble and refined. The same spices and powdery notes intermingle with dried exotic fruits (banana, pineapple, passion fruit), licorice, and heady flowers (violet, lilac, hyacinth). Its bitterness brings forth a plethora of aromatic herbs (lemon verbena, chamomile, sage).

Finish : Long, substantial, almost carnal. Its Oriental character emerges (ylang-ylang), as do hints of balsamic vinegar. It then oscillates between wild dark fruits (blackberries, blueberries) and mint chocolate. The journey extends to pipe tobacco and an artichoke heart.

Profile : Noble and refined.
