The flavor profile of Elliott Erwitt is based on 35 user reviews. We have compiled and summarized the community's tasting notes for you, to give you an impression of the aroma and taste of the rum:

Elliott Erwitt, a complex Mount Gay rum, entices with an aromatic nose offering tropical fruits, vanilla, and a hint of super glue. The palate bursts with traces of citrus, burnt rubber, and cola, though the 60% alcohol feels inadequately integrated. A connoisseur's choice, savored in small sips.

„One of the better Mount Gay rums I know - but the profile remains too insignificant for me. Alcohol integration seems to be a constant challenge of the distillates, moreover, the flavor spectrum remains overall quite close together. Smoky notes, oak, spices - here for a change with some tropical fruit freshness. Can not inspire me, unfortunately.“

„Not the best Mount Gay in my mind. I've had better and far cheaper ones. Again this will probably be a collectors item like the others. The nose is fruity with oak, vanilla, polish and lovely chocolate. If you leave the empty glass for a few hours these flavours will be even more powerful. The palate is fruity with roasted oak, caramel, leather, vanilla and chocolate. The finish is long with caramel, vanilla, orange and light nuttiness.“

„The nose quite appealing (apart from the yet quite pungent alcohol) with vanilla, barrel, coconut, orange peel. On the palate, however, extremely burnt / charred. Since I reach then but rather to the more balanced and more complex RumClub Ed. 23 BMMG.“

„I would have blindly guessed Clarendon. On the palate first relatively mild and round, then quite bitter and astringent in the finish. Not so my case.“

„Ce Mount Gay est pour le coup très disparate. Le nez est très parfumé, mélangeant avec maitrise les arômes de fruits tropicaux et d’agrumes, le bois, les épices, le caramel et quelques pointes de vernis et de colle. Cependant, la bouche explose sur l’alcool, qui est ici malheureusement pas si bien intégré que ça. Des notes sombres reviennent en bouche avec une pointe de citron vert et de caramel. La finale est assez longue sur le cuir, les épices vanillées avec une pointe médicamenteuse. Un rhum assez dur qui doit être bu par micro-gorgées.“

„Not what I like. The alcohol could be better integrated. Wet oak, very floral and woody mouthfeel. Pungent finish. Not a total failure but not to my taste.“

„Somehow he doesn't leave such a good impression...seems flat and one-dimensional.“

„I definitely have a soft spot for Mount Gay bottlings, such as Last Ward. I also really like this bottling from Velier. A little edgy, but I can deal with that. In the end, however, there are much cheaper alternatives and I even like the current Rumclub bottling a bit better (more smoke). With the hype the many money in the end not worth it. But tasty is this bottling 😅“

„Die Profile sind zwar unterschiedlich, aber geschmacklich und preislich verliert er imo klar gg. die Last Ward Abfüllungen. Alkohol ist nicht gut eingebunden. Braucht Zeit, dann kommen paar feine Fruchtnoten mit bitter/holzigen Abgang. Da hat der 2009er Last Ward viel mehr Spaß gemacht“
