Default Looking to buy a Royal Navy rum set, available a few years ago

Hi everyone,
I've been thinking for a while about buying a British Royal Navy rum set. If you're not familiar, this was the set that was available before it was rebottled and marketed as the Black Tot came around. The set consisted of a ceramic demijohn, a decanter set, and certificate of authenticity.

Yes, I realize the set is spendy. Anyone have one? Interested in getting rid of it perhaps? Reply here or message me directly.

Just to be clear, the Black Tot is actually a blend of several demijohns.

The set, that I believe you are talking about, was priced around 3000-4000 dollars last time I saw it available.

If anyone has it I doubt they'd be looking forward to selling such a treasure.

I just seen this not too long ago; but can't recall which vendor had it. If I see it again, I will post.

The last time I was there, Applejack's Liquor in Denver had a set in their "Expensive Stuff Glass Case" in the back of the store. Let me know if you want me to check it out.
