Velier Mount Gay Elliott Erwitt 2007 14yr 60%

RX10646 Very good Single Cask 1,200 bottles Under 250€
“Barbados gem with complex, intense flavors but lacking smoothness, overpriced.”

Introducing Elliott Erwitt, a limited edition rum crafted in Barbados at the Mount Gay distillery and independently bottled by Velier. Distilled in 2007 from Molasses and aged for 14 years, this exquisite rum boasts a strong 60% ABV and an exclusive release of only 1200 bottles. Rum enthusiasts have found a delightful mix of aromas on the nose, featuring vanilla, custard, coconut, woody, and pineapple notes. On the palate, Elliott Erwitt is known for its intense flavors of vanilla, roasted, leather, and an alcoholic warmth. This Mount Gay rum delivers a unique experience with its tropical fruity nose and a slightly bitter but long-lasting finish, showing off its aging potential. While not everyone's favorite, Elliott Erwitt is a collector's item, drawing attention from those who appreciate sophisticated and challenging rums.

“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.”
