A delicious sipping Rum with a rich, Whiskey-like flavor profile.

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 Black Barrel gets its name from the deeply-charred finishing casks. It’s a cross section of Mount Gay Rums aged between three and seven years with more than half of the Spirit dripping off double-pot stills and the rest coming from the column stills. All of the Rum was aged in American Whiskey barrels. After marrying, the Rum was finished in ex-Bourbon casks and bottled at 43% ABV. It really is a wonderful expression and a great Rum for Bourbon-Lovers in all the best ways.

A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. Most popular suggestions are: Rum (the Romani word for potent), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).

Laura,
Spice and vanilla, sweet on the end
 
TERRENCE
TERRENCE,
Not my favorite rum, but still very good. Has a bit more bite at the end than I like in a good rum. Pairs very well with ginger beer for a great Dark & Stormy!
 
John
John,
I tried this at the distillery in Barbados. As I used to predominately drink bourbon, I appreciated the caramel, spice and oak. Even better in their signature rum punch.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
This bottle brought me back to rum.
 
Lucas
Lucas,
This stuff is some of the best rum you can get, even people that didn't like rum started adding it to about everything (tea, cola, juice, sangria, etc.) and its great straight too!
