Smooth good for sipping

Rick,
This is becoming my go-to daily rum. I can get this at my local bottle shop for $40 and at that price is hard to beat. Love the ripe fruit and hints of dark brown sugar. Always a pleasure on the rocks with a lime wedge.

It's a warm summer day, you want something refreshing, you're a rum lover, a little ice, a little lime . . . and Mount Gay . . . a MUST! It's a smooth, delicious rum you don't want to waste in a mixed drink.

Michael,
This is a very complex rum. The mineral quality of the molasses definitely comes through, though the banana is a bit estery, not unlike the aroma of those penny candy store "balloon in a tube" novelties. If it weren't for the over-esteriness, I'd rate this quite high.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
That barrel aging worked out really well. There is a smoky undertone to the subtle flavors that linger on this richly bodied rum. I would not hesitate to purchase this.
