Mt. Gay Black Barrel Rum (700ml)
Black Barrel Rum
Dating back to 1660, Mount Gay is one of the oldest estates in the Caribbean and certainly one of the oldest in Barbados. In fact, in 2023 it will be celebrating its 320th anniversary.
Like all the other rums in the Mount Gay range, Black Barrel is made from double pot and single column distillates that are aged separately in x-Bourbon barrels. "What makes Mount Gay Black Barrel different is that when rums have matured, Master Blender Allen Smith selects and blends aged single and double distillates with a higher proportion of double distillates than in the Eclipse blend," comments Suntory Australia brand manager, Jeremy Church.
"The Black Barrel blend is then aged a second time, in deeply charred bourbon barrels, hence its name."
Aroma: Toasted wood, oaky vanilla, sweet caramel, and peppery notes.
Taste: Bold spice balanced with oaky vanilla and sweet caramel.
Body: Warm, medium body with a bright finish.
