“We tasted four Mount Gay 2000 releases at the Rum-X Community Tasting. The tasting was very entertaining, but the rums only contributed a small part. Overall, the rums were super similar, with the differences being in the nuances. Personally, I don't like the profile as much, as it simply lacks fruit. In the mouth, I find them better across the board than in the nose.The Mercenary rum is the sweetest of the round, with a grain note reminiscent of bourbon. The fruit on the nose is reminiscent of ripe banana, along with tobacco, tea and vanilla with lightly charred caramel. The mouth is intense and creamy with a nice sweetness. It's super smooth, but unfortunately not particularly complex.”

“Comparaison de 3 Mount Gay 2000 hier soir avec deux amis : The rum mercenary : un nez très gourmand, sur la pâte d'amande et quelques fruits jaunes. Super agréable. La bouche est dans la ligne du nez sans surprise. Au final c'est bon mais ça manque un peu de complexité. The rum cask : aucun doute c'est vraiment le même rhum à peu de choses près. Ici le bois se fait plus de place au nez mais aussi en bouche, et entraine une finale un peu amère. Cela rend le nez plus sympa sur ce rhum. The duchess : on sent bien encore une fois qu'on est sur le même rhum mais le profil est plus boisé. Sauf que étonnement c'est mieux integré que sur le rum cask, plus équilibré et gourmand. Au final le meilleur des 3 pour nous hier soir.”

“Finde hier die Nase erstmal sehr angenehm. Leider vergeht das mit dem ersten Schluck und anstelle der floralen treten nun überwiegend röstige etwas zu bitter geratene Eindrücke. Die ich zwar durchaus mag die aber dann doch etwas einseitig wirken.”
