Einer der besseren mir bekannten Mount Gay Rums - aber mir bleibt das Profil zu unbedeutend. Die Alkoholintegration scheint eine beständige Herausforderung der Destillate zu sein, zudem bleibt das Aromenspektrum insgesamt recht eng beieinander. Rauchnoten, Eiche, Gewürze - hier zur Abwechslung mit etwas Frische tropischer Früchte. Vermag mich leider nicht zu begeistern.

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.

Incredibile equilibrio che ha questo rum in tutta la sua degustazione! Ha anche una concentrazione di sapori fantastica! Lo adoro!

Die Nase recht ansprechend (abgesehen von dem doch ziemlich stechenden Alkohol) mit Vanille, Fass, Kokosnuss, Orangenschale. Am Gaumen aber extrem verbrannt/verkohlt. Da greife ich dann doch lieber zu dem ausgewogeneren und vielschichtigeren RumClub Ed. 23 BMMG.

Hätte ich blind auf Clarendon getippt. Am Gaumen erst relativ mild und rund, im Abgang dann ganz schön bitter und adstringierend. Nicht so mein Fall.

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.

Pas ce que j'aime. L'alcool pourrair être mieux intégré. Boisé mouillé, bouche très florale et boisée. Finale piquante. C'est pas totalement raté mais pas à mon goût.

Irgendwie hinterlässt er nicht so den guten Eindruck…wirkt flach und eindimensional.

Ich habe definitiv einen Soft Spot für Mount Gay Abfüllungen, wie z.b. Last Ward. Mir gefällt diese Abfüllung von Velier auch sehr gut. Etwas kantig, aber damit kann ich umgehen. Am Ende gibt es aber wesentlich günstigere Alternativen und mir gefällt die aktuelle Rumclub Abfüllung sogar etwas besser (mehr Rauch). Mit dem Hype das viele Geld am Ende nicht wert. Aber lecker ist diese Abfüllung 😅
