Mount Gay Black Barrel is a Barbados rum created by the Mount Gay Distillery and was introduced in the UK back in 2014.
This rum comes from the imagination of Master Blender Allen Smith and is a handcrafted small batch blend which is matured using double pot distillates and aged column distillates. When Mount Gay Black Barrel reaches the process called finishing, the rum is matured for one more time using deeply charred bourbon oak barrels.
Mount Gay Black Barrel gives off rich aromas of plump sultanas, cracked black pepper and creamy vanilla which come from the bourbon barrel finish. Following the smell the taste is spicy which comes from the use of cinnamon, with notes of liquorice and vanilla. The finish has length but is balanced and shifts among sweet and spicy flavours.
