Description

Try Mount Gay in a traditional Caribbean cocktail such as the Original Rum Punch, or why not in a Daiquiri: 50ml Black Barrel, 25ml lime juice, 10ml sugar syrup - shaken over ice and strained into a chilled cocktail glass or coupe. The images shown are representative, the design, year of vintage or engraving may differ slightly from the final product.

The superbly rich and smooth Black Barrel is a unique, small batch, handcrafted rum created to commemorate the 310th anniversary of the Mount Gay Rum estate in Barbados, officially founded in 1703 but with roots extending back to the 16th century. On the palate showcases overripe fruit, baked banana and light tropical fruit with more oak presence and tobacco. It turns up the initial profile a bit, it’s adding a layer of more floral/herbal notes and it balances the rum overall, but because of the lack of contrast, the spiciness of MGDCB doesn’t stand out as much. When drinking straight, the flavor was quite smooth and somewhat sweet with a smokiness that reminded me of the whiskeys I generally drink and I enjoyed it, but there is a LOT of burn after that I wasn't expecting.The blended rum is distilled twice: first prior to blending, and then again afterwards in specially-constructed bourbon oak barrels. Presumably the blend isn’t the same as I’ve been told this would contain a higher ratio of pot still distillate than the standard expression. Can’t really score the pricing given I don’t know for how much it’s sold on the island, but all rum in Barbados is more than reasonable so I’ll go with that. The smoke is there again, but I feel like the transition from the initial taste and mid/end palate is smoother.

The first-class Black Barrel Rum by Mount Gay from Barbados flows into the brightly polished glass in a strong amber hue.

Rum however, is at the top of my tree - not that spiced malarkey that in my opinion is spiced purely for the purpose of disguising what is essentially crap rum.

Ok, so brandy doesn't get much press either but brandy to me seems a bit of an elitist drink but it's still part of the big 5.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.

I guess I expected it to have more of a strong rum flavour but as others have said it almost tastes like a whiskey (to an untrained palette at least) but I guess that is darker rums.
