A good solid rum! In the nose the classic mount gay smell woody, nutty and spicy. In mouth you will taste more fruits (mango, apricot…), tobacco and mocha with some leather. At the end there is an interesting bitter sweet finish with black tea, fruits, milk chocolate and a looooot of wood

For the not so long aging, wood / barrel is quite present in a positive sense, joined by caramel notes and rather sweet fruits such as mango and banana. Very soft and mild.

I have a lot of rums from this bottler because their average rum is alway good. The nose on this particular one is very fruity with vanilla. Then there is roasted barrel and a nice flowery note. The palate is complex and also very fruity with spices and some roasted barrel on top. The finish is long with roasted wood, fruits and a touch of tobacco.

Very special flavor profile of sour cherries, unripe apricots, glue, lychee, black tea, burnt wood, incense, strong dark espresso and milk chocolate with nutmeg. This acidity irritates and fascinates me at the same time how that gets in there. Beautiful product, extremely complex because at the same time much wood much floral, spicy and fruity notes meet and battle.... Crass long finish even for a Mount gay! but there you have to have real Bock on it! Alcohol could be a little better integrated, Definitely not an easy sipper...😅

Surprisingly Fruity (citrus and later cherry) at the beginning in the nose, later a touch of vanilla and coconutOn the palate a woodiness and spiciness prevails with a touch of mocha...very tasty. The finish is also very mild! The alcohol is perfectly integrated!A first class Mount Gay

Nice fruity spicy on the nose. Tart sweet with plum and cherry and those sulfured dried apricots. A touch of vanilla burnt sugar and bourbon is still there. On the palate comes, again, a tart-bitter-sweet fruitiness, most likely from the dried apricot again. But then also immediately something spicy-woody and perfumy in the direction of violets. In the finish I have again this tart-sweet of violet and green tea.Overall delicious.

Compared to the 2007 and 2009, I like the much fruitier notes and especially the optimal integration of alcohol. Pleasantly mild and nutty and caramel notes. Very tasty Barbade.
