This was the first English styled rum that I tasted and I didn’t appreciate it at all. A retest would certainly upgrade this rating a lot. Today I appreciate the Bajan style very much.

This is a great rum from Mt. Gay and one of my favourites from this destillery. The blend ranges from 10 to 30 years of age and thus the balance and complexity. This rum can compete with the greatest out there and at a really good price tag.

A really enjoyable Barbados rum. The nose is divine, light vanilla and bourbon cask elements. Mouth is not the most complex but plum and wood notes, not perfectly integrated but layers of flavour and real step up from some of the standard Mount Gay rums. The finish is lightly spicy and medium length. A super solid rum although it honestly feels a bit underpowered and would benefit from a bit more ABV
