Review and Tasting
Sampled on 10/11/2019
Clear, mid-deep golden amber.
Pungent. Linseed oil putty, banana leaf, pineapple, boatyard varnish and orange marmalade.
Full-bodied. Cinnamon, clove and ginger spice, dry oak, dried pineapple and coffee beans/bitter chocolate.
Long finish with tropical fruit, vanilla, clove spice and bitter chocolate.
Black Tot is pungent and full-bodied and of classic British Navy rum style but sadly falls a little short of being Navy strength at a still assertive 46.2 alc./vol.
