About this deal

MG Eclipse, MG XO and MG Black Barrel all got a modern new look, with the last two having their recipes tweaked by the fairly new Mount Gay Master Blender – Trudiann Branker. Following that it looks like Trudiann didn’t waste any time with the release of the new Mount Gay Black Barrel Double Cask Blend and Mount Gay XO Triple Cask Blend. MGDCB definitely wins this from the complexity point of view, but I know I will definitely be nostalgic about the MGBB’s flavour profile especially paired with the amazing value for money.

Rum however, is at the top of my tree - not that spiced malarkey that in my opinion is spiced purely for the purpose of disguising what is essentially crap rum. Mount Gay Black Barrel Barbados Golden Rum is crafted from a blend of intense and aromatic Bajan rums, distilled in traditional copper pot and column stills, matured between 3 to 7 years in American whiskey casks, and finished for 6 months in deeply charred Bourbon casks. The result of this crafting is a nose that shows maturity and notes of honey and molasses with hints of spice and oak.Molasses based, blend of column and pot still distillates with more pot still component than its predecessor and aged for a bit longer – the rum’s age ranging from 3 to 7 years old in the tropics in ex-American Whiskey casks.

Released in the UK in 2014, the Mount Gay Black Barrel rum is made from single column and double pot distilled rum, though using a higher proportion of double pot distillates than their other expressions. A blend of rums distilled in copper pot and column stills, matured in American whiskey casks and finished in charred Bourbon casks.Only the finest sugar cane molasses and pure water that's filtered through the coral heart of the island of Barbados are selected. This made me pull out my other rums and compare because I'd always thought they were fine, but this made me rethink things and if you like a sweeter, but strong spirit give this a go.
