As every Rum buff (or buccaneer) will tell you, a tot was a daily ration given to sailors by the Royal Navy, and it amounted to about 70 milliliters of Rum. Black Tot 40YO Demerara Rum was distilled in Port Mourant, Guyana, which has a history of Rum-making almost as long as the concept of the navy tot. The immensely extravagant Rum was created in the now-demolished Uitvlugt distillery from molasses. It spent at least four decades in ex-Bourbon white American oak barrels before bottling it in Scotland.

The nose offers rich and dense notes of licorice, star anise, black olives, and cigar smoke, while the palate goes for thick and dark flavors of treacle, olive brine, cherry, and smoke. Ah, we’ll be dreaming about this dram.

Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
