Ungewöhnlicher Mount Gay. Sehr schöne Minze - erinnert fast schon an einen TDL.

A very spicy rum with a touch of sweet to it. It has a lack of depth, unfortunately, a bit of funky would have done well for this version. I recommend adding a bit of water which will make it more "Bajan" style taste.

Questo è davvero un grande mount gay!

Ein grundsolider Rum, dem aber in meinen Augen nahezu jegliche Begeisterungsfähigkeit abgeht. Gewürze, Kräuter, Holz, etwas karamellige Süsse und eine präsente Rauchnote werden erkennbar, dazu schwingt auch ein wenig Fruchtigkeit mit.

An interesting Mount Gay rum. The noise is fairly restrained, some tropical fruit, muscavado sugar and leather bound books. On the mouth it is subtler than I was expecting and drinks well below ABV. Moderately integrated, with long leather elements and some charred wood. It has layers which go more towards sugar and fruit but overall remains on the dryer end. The finish is medium and again fairly well behaved. Solid MG but not setting the world on fire in the same way as some other Velier releases, a little bit timid and flat to really show the best of the spirit

Fazit: im Gegensatz zum 2009er hat er noch leichte Lösungsmittel- und fleischige Noten, die ihn für mich noch komplexer und besser machen.

eine unglaubliche Wucht an Aroma für Barbados und sehr untypisch frisch, minzig und nach ordentlich Klebstoff und verbranntem Holz und Salzkaramell. dazu etwas gebackene Banane, saure Zitrone und Menthol. der braucht wirklich enorm viel Zeit zum atmen... ist mir persönlich aber dennoch insgesamt zu scharf und alkoholisch. aber allemal super spannendes Profil für einen mount gay!

Un côté mentholé assez atypique... J'aurai jamais pensé à un mount gay..

Profile picture of user

Nez équilibré et fin contraste avec attaque en bouche très puissante (trop forte) Belle longueur Equilibre boisé / pâtissier amande (amère) caramel / fruité coco Mais bouche trop puissante et trop d'amertume en fin de bouche

Profile picture of user

A fruity nose dominated by galla melon. The palate though is heavy, bitter, burnt leather with a long charter finish. Not the best integrated rum.

Brûlant, déséquilibré, dur, végétal, porté sur les agrumes trop mûres... je n'aime pas Mount Gay.
