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

Für die gar nicht so lange Reifung ist Holz/Fass im positiven Sinne recht präsent, dazu gesellen sich Karamellnoten und eher süße Früchte wie Mango und Banane. Sehr weich und 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.

Sehr spezielles Geschmacksprofil aus sauren Kirschen, unreifen Aprikosen, Klebstoff, lychee, schwarzem Tee, verbranntem Holz, Weihrauch, kräftigem dunklem espresso und Milchschokolade mit Muskatnuss. Diese Säure irritiert und fasziniert mich gleichzeitig wie die da rein kommt. Schönes Produkt, extrem komplex da gleichzeitig viel Holz viel florale, würzige und fruchtige Noten aufeinander treffen und sich batteln... Krass langer Abgang auch für einen Mount gay! aber da muss man echt Bock drauf haben! Alkohol könnte etwas besser integriert sein, Definitiv kein easy sipper...😅

Überraschend Fruchtig (Zitrus und später Kirsche) am Anfang in der Nase, später ein Hauch von Vanille und Kokosnuss Am Gaumen überwiegt eine Holzig- und Würzigkeit mit einem Touch Mokka…sehr lecker. Der Abgang ist ebenfalls sehr mild! Der Alkohol ist perfekt eingebunden! Ein erstklassiger Mount Gay

Schön fruchtig würzig in der Nase. Herb-süß mit Pflaume und Kirsche und diese geschwefelten getrockneten Aprikosen. Ein Hauch Vanille gebrannter Zucker und Bourbon ist da noch. Am Gaumen kommt, wieder, eine herb-bittere-süße Fruchtigkeit, am ehesten wieder von der getrockneten Aprikose. Aber dann auch gleich etwas würzig-holziges und parfumiges in Richtung Veilchen. Im Abgang habe ich wieder dieses herbe-süße von Veilchen und grünem Tee. Insgesamt lecker.

Im Vergleich mit dem 2007er und 2009er gefallen mir die deutlich fruchtigeren Noten und vor allem die optimale Einbindung vom Alkohol. Angenehm mild und nussig sowie Karamellnoten. Sehr leckerer Barbade.
