The finest of the fine of Barbados in an elegant sipping rum.

Rum production is THE primary industry on the island of Barbados — the eastern-most island in the Caribbean. Mount Gay is not only the oldest Rum Distillery on the island, it is documented to be the oldest Rum Distillery in the world with land title papers stretching all the way back to 1703. Technically, the Distillery is independent, but Rémy Cointreau is a majority shareholder of the facility and controls the Mount Gay brand — and they do a very good job leaving them alone to create their brand of Caribbean magic.

Mount Gay 1703 Master Select Rum is named after the year that the Distillery was founded. That should tell you something about the nature of this particular special edition release — they are exceptionally proud of it.

Mount Gay 1703 Master Select Rum is a combination of signature Spirits aged from ten to thirty years on site in American oak casks. Each cask was personally selected by master Blander Allen Smith and combined into a strictly limited number of bottles. So, do yourself a favor and get at least one of these for yourself.

Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’

Tasting Notes

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is rich and delicate with notes of Banana’s Foster, oak, and mocha.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is luxurious a well-balanced with notes of raisin and fig, baking spices, and toast with almond butter.

The finish is medium-to-long with a savoriness.

Ratings & Reviews
I had a sip of this fine rum late last year at a local rum bar. I have been a fan of Mount Gay Rum for many, many, years (nearly 35). Once I tasted this rum I couldn’t forget it. Fast forward to this past March and I find myself visiting Barbados. First (and only) stop? The Mount Gay distillery! Had to procure a bottle of this elixir! My friends couldn’t believe the price of it, and I tired of trying to explain it was worth every penny! It now proudly sits right up there with my favorite scotches and bourbons just waiting to be savored. My advice? BUY THIS RUM!! Tom S
I was fortunate enough to try a glass of this at the end of the distillery tour. Unbelievable smooth on the palate, caramel and molasses. Lingering finish with virtually no after-bite.
