For many rum aficionados Mount Gay is the reference by which all rum should be measured, as it is “The Rum that invented Rum”. Every great story begins with a time and a Place for Mount Gay rum, that time and place is the Caribbean isle of Barbados in 1703 where it was first distilled and still is to this day.
THE MOUNT GAY RUM COLLECTION
Mount Gay Eclipse
Eclipse is the reference for character, body and aroma by which our Master Blender Allen Smith uses to blend every variety of Mount Gay Rum. For many rum aficionados Eclipse is also the reference by which all rum should be measured. Eclipse has a brilliant golden amber colour and a luxuriously complex aroma.
Distinctive floral and fruity notes of apricot and banana, with hints of vanilla.
Mount Gay Eclipse Silver
Clean and aromatic in contrast to Eclipse’s rich smokiness, Silver offers a balanced, mellow harmony of sugar cane syrup and banana, infused with notes of peppermint and citrus.
Intermingled sweet notes of sugar cane, peppermint, banana and citrus.
Mount Gay Black Barrel
The latest from Master Blender Allen Smith, Black Barrel is a small batch, handcrafted blend made of matured double pot distillates and aged column distillates. In a process called finishing, the blended rum is then matured for a second time in deeply charred Bourbon oak barrels. This unique process releases spicy aromas that are at once balanced, and bold.
Complex notes of spice, toasted wood, followed by fruit.
Mount Gay XO- Formally known as Extra Old
An opulent blend of the finest spirits aged for 8 to 15 years. Where Eclipse is floral and fruity, XO blends significantly older barrels of mainly double pot distillates that have rounded these crisper notes into a subtler balance. It exudes the finesse that only time can bring and offers a true taste of paradise from the rum that invented rum.
Perfect balance of ripe banana and toast, followed by vanilla, pastry and warm spice.
Mount Gay 1703
In creating 1703 Old Cask Selection, Master Blender Allen Smith selected the finest single and double distilled rums from Mount Gay’s oldest reserves. 1703 is a discerning blend comprised of the rare and noteworthy barrels that Allen has carefully monitored over the years. Forty four blends were necessary to reach the subtle, perfectly balanced and harmonious final blend.
Refined harmony of oaky and caramel notes
