Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum 70cl 43% ABV
Released in the UK in 2014, the Mount Gay Black Barrel rum is made from single column and double pot distilled rum, though using a higher proportion of double pot distillates than their other expressions. It is also finished in heavily charred bourbon barrels before being bottled.
Rich warming notes of plum on the nose, as wells as sultanas, cracked black pepper and creamy vanilla from the bourbon barrel finish. The palate is toasty, deep spice with plenty of cinnamon and a hint of liquorice. The finish is long and balanced.
