This is a very nice and easy sipping rum from Mount Gay. A typical Bajan rum in nose and palate. The nose is elegant with spice, a bit of orange and charred barrel. The palate starts off with a bit of sweetness, spicy and a bit dry. There is some leather and earthyness to it as well. The finish is medium long, dry and with charred oak and ginger. Again a tiny bit of earthyness on the way out.

Der für mich interessanteste der 3 Standardabfüllungen. Sehr komplex und vielschichtig

Sehr leckerer würziger Rum mit einer angenehmen süße im Abgang. Schade, dass mit Zuckerkulör gefärbt wurde. Wäre echt interessant die natürliche Farbe zu sehen. Edit: Aufgrund inzwischen einiger verkosteter Rums hab ich die Bewertung etwas gesenkt, für einen geeigneten Maßstab

Bien meilleur que le Black Barrel goûté juste avant. Le fût est très présent et donne du punch à ce rhum très sirupeux et vanillé. Ce n'est pas le style de rhum que j'apprécie le plus mais la dégustation n'était pas désagréable.

Un Mount Gay qui a bénéficié d’un triple vieillissement dans différents fûts. Le nez libère les arômes typiques de la Barbade, avec du caramel, des épices douces, un peu de noix de coco, du chocolat et un boisé assez présent sur le plan olfactif. La bouche rappelle le poivre, le chocolat noir, le chêne et la touche de cognac d’une des trois finitions. La finale se veut assez fermée, fumée et chaude avec des notes de tabac, de chêne et de chocolat noir. Un rhum assez unidimensionnel, dont on pourrait s’attendre à plus en terme de complexité avec le vieillissement atypique.

Super „daily“ Sipper! Update: Von den bezahlbaren und immer verfügbaren nach wie vor mein liebster Barbados Rum. Im Vergleich muss ich hier aber etwas nach unten korrigieren.

Guter ehrlicher Einstiegsrum, wenn es ohne Zucker und ohne Finish sein soll. Das passt.

Rum Depot Adventskalender Tür 6 Nase: schön fruchtig mit Noten in Richtung spanischer "Rons" Mund: Ich habe den Eindruck von Zucker (Dosage?) Abgang: Würzigkeit und Fass dominieren hier. Sehr solider Rum mit durchgehender Konsistenz von Nase bis Abgang aber ohne Überraschung oder Ecken und Kanten.

Toller typischer Barbados-Rum (Kokos, Rosine, Karamell, Holz) zum fairen Preis.
