Kill-Devil.

The story of Mount Gay Rum begins in the year 1703, on the Caribbean island of Barbados, when John Sober (seriously...), inherited a distillery, and invited Sir John Gay to help manage it. Sir John Gay jumped at the opportunity to give the Barbadians something special. He refined the production process and began producing noticeably superior product that has survived to this day. Mount Gay is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, Rum brand in the World.

Mount Gay 1703 celebrates the founding of the distillery. It's an excellent Rum crafted by master distiller, Allen Smith, and contains Rums that have been aged between 10 and 30 years. It's comprised of rare and noteworthy barrels that Allen has been carefully monitoring over the years.

SmartAss corner: Rum was originally called »Kill-Devil« by the Barbadians.

Rum (usually) comes from molasses; the sweet and syrupy residue left behind after sugar crystals are extracted from sugar cane juice. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, which can contribute to the final flavour.
