Mount Gay Black Barrel

mount-gayOwner: Remy Cointreau

Price: £29

While all Mount Gay rums are made from a blend of column and pot still distillates, Mount Gay Black Barrel contains a higher proportion of pot still rums that have been blended and matured in toasted oak and then finished in charred ex-Bourbon casks. Released as a celebration of the distillery’s 311-year anniversary, it is described as being a “bold tasting” rum with notes of “pepper, spice and wood”. Judges felt this rum offered “something different” and awarded it a Gold medal.
