Black Tot Rum Master Blender's Reserve 2023

Black Tot Rum Master Blender's Reserve 2023

Black Tot Master Blender's Reserve is an ode to the flavor profile of the historic Navy Rum. This Rum is a composition of various Rums from Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica, Grenada and Trinidad to which part of the previous blend (2022) and a small part of original Navy Rum from before July 31, 1970 are added.

  • Composition of the blend:

    GUYANA BLEND - 31.5%
    Guyana historically has been one of the world's leading producers of molasses and rum, and it was undoubtedly the heart of the Navy Rum blend. Despite the consolidation of its many distilleries, Guyana's historic stills have survived and continue to make a variety of rich and flavorful rum marques at Demerara Distillers. The below breakdown of the Guyana component comprises 31.5% of the final Master Blender's Reserve 2023 rum blend.

    Jamaica Blend - 9%
    JAMAICA BLEND - 9%
    Classically a heavier style pot-still rum, Jamaican distilleries like Hampden utilize longer fermentation times, as well as wild yeast strains, and the addition of dunder and muck pits in their molasses ferment to create distinctively big, funky flavors. The below breakdown of the Jamaica component comprises 9% of the final Master Blender's Reserve 2023 rum blend.

    Trinidad Blend - 19%
    TRINIDAD BLEND - 19%
    Trinidad's most famous rums have all developed out of distilleries founded in the 1900s, most notably Caroni and Trinidad Distillers. The former made a heavier style column still rum (no longer in operation), and was a core component of the original Navy Rum blend - while the latter is a lighter, cleaner style, and is responsible for continuing the heritage of Trinidad rum today. The below breakdown of the Trinidad component comprises 19% of the final Master Blender's Reserve 2023 rum blend.
