BLACK TOT RARE OLD 40 YEARS DEMERARA RUM

‘'The British Navy’s love of the rum from Guyana is well-documented. This single cask bottling of rum was distilled in the Port Mourant still which has a history almost as long as the Royal Navy ration, and for me truly represents the ‘heart of the tot’. '’ - Oliver Chilton, Head Blender

One of the oldest examples of Demerara Rum in the world today, this was distilled in 1975 in the historic Port Mourant Double Wooden Vat Still while it was housed at the now demolished Uitvlugt distillery in Guyana.

We consider this rum to be one of ‘The Hearts of the Tot’, such was Guyana’s importance in the historic Navy Rum blend. 40 years of angel’s share has brought it to 44.2% ABV, and we present this exceptionally rare rum at its natural cask strength.

Tasting Notes

From The Producer


  • Nose

    Dense liquorice, star anise and fruity black olives accompanied by heady cigar smoke and fragrant pine. Warm and ripe citrus fruit – orange and lemon peel – blends with spicy cinnamon and nutmeg.

  • Palate

    Thick, dark treacle and olive brine mixed with cherry concentrate, cigar smoke and charred wood. More smoke comes through on the palate, mixing with the flavours of plump sultanas, bittersweet raisins and juicy blackcurrants.

  • Finish

    The balance between sweet and savoury is extraordinary and keeps developing on the palate, creating a finish that lasts for an age.
