Presumably the blend isn’t the same as I’ve been told this would contain a higher ratio of pot still distillate than the standard expression. You could also try it with iced tea, not that Lipton's made up stuff, knock it together yourself and add a shot of rum.I’m interested as how the ex-American casks would differ from ex-Bourbon ones – if anyone has details regarding this please get in touch. In the event of any safety concerns or for any other information about a product please carefully read any instructions provided on the label or packaging and contact the manufacturer. Only the finest sugar cane molasses and pure water that's filtered through the coral heart of the island of Barbados are selected.

I love gin, I can drink vodka but just don't go near whisky at all, I've never liked it since some stupid stunt years ago on a day out in London. At first taste, it was similar to the standard Mount Gay but then it transferred to the back of my throat and had more of a kick.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. 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. Same with the original Black Barrel, it has been aged in former American Whisky casks before being finished in very charred ex-Bourbon barrels – hence the name.Mount Gay Black Barrel Cask Strength is bottled at 66% ABV and available only in Barbados at the Distillery and Visitor Centre in limited quantities.

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.Mount Gay Black Barrel is crafted from a blend of intense and aromatic 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. Can’t really score the pricing given I don’t know for how much it’s sold on the island, but all rum in Barbados is more than reasonable so I’ll go with that. Rich warming notes of plum on the nose, as wells as sultanas, cracked black pepper and creamy vanilla from the bourbon barrel finish. Mount Gay has continued a long-standing Barbadian tradition for producing the world's oldest refined rum.
