Description

Mount Gay, one of the rum producers in Barbados, and arguably the oldest running distillery in the world, has recently updated its core range. 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. Wes from The Fat Rum Pirate has already compared the XOs in his review so I decided to have a look at the Black Barrels.

I'll stick to whisky as I don't prefer the extra sweetness personally, but I'd recommend anyone to try this. Same with the original Black Barrel, it has been aged in former American Whisky casks before being finished in very charred ex-Bourbon barrels – hence the name. 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.

Coriander, basil, pistachios, sweet cherries, red apples, grapefruit zest, vanilla, canned peaches, raspberries and marmalade. You could also try it with iced tea, not that Lipton's made up stuff, knock it together yourself and add a shot of rum. In the event of any safety concerns or for any other information about a product please carefully read any instructions provided on the label or packaging and contact the manufacturer. MG Eclipse, MG XO and MG Black Barrel all got a modern new look, with the last two having their recipes tweaked by the fairly new Mount Gay Master Blender – Trudiann Branker. While I do like the flavour profile of MGBB – young Barbadian rum spiced up by a heavily charred barrel, the MGDCB is definitely more complex.

While we have taken care in preparing this summary and believe it is accurate, it is not a substitute for your reading the product packaging and label prior to use. Distillery Facts: Mount Gay was originally owned by John Sober - who inherited a small distillery at the top of Mount Gilboa in the St. Such as a driving license, passport, military ID card, national identity card or a proof of age card with the PASS hologram. Trudiann’s first act as the new Master Blender was the release of the Mount Gay Pot Still rum last year that was praised by many rum enthusiasts including myself. Mount Gay Black Barrel is distilled in small batches using a special double-pot, single-column process.Information and statements about products are not intended to be used to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or health condition.

On the palate it’s actually very close in profile with MGBB, just everything dialed up a notch, I’m not just copying tasting notes. The images shown are representative, the design, year of vintage or engraving may differ slightly from the final product.Private wine storage: we offer a full In Bond and Duty Paid private wine storage service - find out more here.

I never liked Rum in my youth, but while working in Suriname, eastern seaboard of South America, I tried some from their local distillery and loved it.
