“#4121 First off, price to quality is pretty good in my mind. Intense and fruity with a well balanced ABV. Despite the age the wood isn't dominant but rather well balanced with the other flavours. Draws really nice curtains in the glass and the empty glass is very nice and I can pick up some chocolate and pineapple.”

“The fact remains that Mount Gay is not mine. This is not a bad product in itself, but fails to excite me. The profile remains well recognizable even with higher storage time and would probably have benefited from a finish, at least to pick me up more would have been interesting some heavy fruit. After all, despite 22 years balanced at the wood impact, even if some bitterness is naturally recognizable.”
