“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 GayToday a second time in the glass. Somehow lost it for me, maybe form of the day. Burnt caramel predominates and the depth is missing for me.”

“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”
