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.

Excellent !

Luke,
How a sipping run should taste. Sweet and strong with a smooth finish.
Wayne
Wayne,
This is a great rum. It came in the sampler with the Ron Quorhum, Quorhum 23 Year Old, which was so good, that by comparison, this was just a bit lacking. I'd definitely order the Mount Gay, or be pleased to see it behind the bar - but given the chance, I'd go for the Quorhum if it was there also.

Pretty expensive but not a bad rum. I feel like for the price it should have been something a little extra.

Quite good. Has an interesting complex flavour with, at my first taste, almost came off as an agricole.
