Wir haben vier Mount Gay 2000er Release im Rum-X Community Tasting verkostet. Das Tasting war sehr unterhaltsam, die Rums haben aber nur einen kleinen Teil dazu beigetragen. Insgesamt waren die Rums super ähnlich, die Unterschiede liegen in den Nuancen. Mir persönlich sagt das Profil nicht so zu, da einfach die Frucht fehlt. Im Mund finde ich sie durch die Bank besser als in der Nase. Der Rum Mercenary ist der süßlichste der Runde, mit einer Getreidenote, die an Bourbon erinnert. Die Frucht in der Nase erinnert an reife Banane, dazu Tabak, Tee und Vanille mit leicht angekohltem Karamell. Der Mund ist intensiv und cremig mit einer schönen Süße. Das ist super smooth, aber leider nicht sonderlich komplex.

In der Nase der floralste der drei von mir verkosteten 2000er Mount Gays, hat schon leichte Anklänge von Agricole. Im Mund im Vergleich zu den anderen angenehm ausbalanciert, hier überlagern die holzig-würzigen Noten nicht den Rest. Im Abgang eine schöne Note von süßem Espresso. Insgesamt sind die 2000er Mount Gays nichts so meins, der hier gefällt mir aber definitiv am besten von den drei probierten.

Out of a small cross tasting: Rum Mercenary is the most lifely with some floral notes while the other three have a more similar profile. Rum Cask is very well balanced an approchable. RumClub feels the most intense with some funky notes. The Duchess is the most elegant out of the bunch and my personal winner.

An der Nase für mich ein klassischer MG. Frucht, Vanille und etwas zartes florales, ein wenig Röstaromen sind auch vorhanden! Am Gaumen eine sehr dominante röstige verbrannte bittere Note, die fast alles überdeckt! Nach einiger Zeit gesellt sich etwas Espresso und Schwarztee hinzu! Der Abgang bleibt röstig verbrannt! Das ist mir für einen guten Rum einfach zu wenig!
