About this deal

Content on this site is not intended to substitute for advice given by medical practitioner, pharmacist, or other licensed health-care professional. Molasses based, blend of column and pot still distillates with more pot still component than its predecessor and aged for a bit longer – the rum’s age ranging from 3 to 7 years old in the tropics in ex-American Whiskey casks. At first taste, it was similar to the standard Mount Gay but then it transferred to the back of my throat and had more of a kick.

The result is a bold tasting rum with notes of pepper, spice and wood that provide a remarkable body and fullness. If you are looking for a specific bottle requirement it is recommended that you verify with us before making a purchase. They mention that its a genuine sipping rum, wonderfully tasteful without a horrible burn and that its beautifully matured. 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. This may affect nutrition and allergen information therefore you should always check product labels and not rely solely on the information presented here.Note the absence of a condition statement does not imply that this lot is in perfect condition or free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of ageing. Mount Gay is known as, arguably, the oldest running rum distillery in the world with a deed stating that distillation took place on their site since 1703. I’m interested as how the ex-American casks would differ from ex-Bourbon ones – if anyone has details regarding this please get in touch.

Mount Gay Black Barrel is crafted from a blend of intense and aromatic rums, distilled in traditional copper pot and column stills, matured between 3 to 7 years in American whiskey casks, and finished for 6 months in deeply charred Bourbon casks. For a person who loves great rum, a personalised bottle of Mount Gay Black Barrel Double Cask Blend is certain to make a great gift. 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. I was fortunate enough to have visited the Mount Gay distillery about 15 years ago and had some rum ice cream for the first time, sipping this fine rum brought back some great memories.Mount Gay Black Barrel Cask Strength is molasses based, pot and column distilled and aged for an unspecified amount of time in ex-American Whisky barrels before being finished in heavily charred ex-Bourbon barrels. I don't have much to compare it to which is why I have not given it 5 stars but it was quite pleasant to drink but more noticeable was the pleasant lingering after taste. Mount Gay Black Barrel is distilled in small batches using a special double-pot, single-column process. A blend of rums distilled in copper pot and column stills, matured in American whiskey casks and finished in charred Bourbon casks.

The only Mount Gay rum finished in charred Bourbon oak barrels, Black Barrel is the full-bodied product of more than three centuries of Mount Gay craftsmanship, innovation and refinement. In a glass of Mount Gay Black Barrel Double Cask Blend you will find a balanced spicy body, with notes of sweet vanilla and caramel. 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. 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.While we take every care to pack bottles securely, we cannot guarantee that old corks and closures will not leak in transit. com shall not be liable for incidental or consequential damages or expenses, including but not limited to lost profits or other economic or commercial losses.
