Description

I guess I expected it to have more of a strong rum flavour but as others have said it almost tastes like a whiskey (to an untrained palette at least) but I guess that is darker rums. 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.

Mount Gay Black Barrel (MGBB) hit the UK market in 2014, meant to bridge the gap between Mount Gay Eclipse and the XO. While we take every care to pack bottles securely, we cannot guarantee that old corks and closures will not leak in transit. It’s also a quintessential Barbadian rum brand and, despite being owned by a big company such as Remy Cointreau, they are making rum using traditional practices. We recommend you switch to using Microsoft Edge or another more modern browser such as Chrome, Firefox, or Safari (Apple users only). 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.

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. Now it is owned by Rémy Cointreau and, benefiting greatly from this company’s wide distribution network, Mount Gay Rum has become very popular all around the world. The blended rum is distilled twice: first prior to blending, and then again afterwards in specially-constructed bourbon oak barrels. You should also note that the picture images show only our serving suggestions of how to prepare your food - all table accessories and additional items and/or ingredients pictured with the product you are purchasing are not included. I really enjoy the standard Mount Gay Black Barrel so when I heard there were releasing version at cask strength I knew I had to try it.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.From mid palate towards the end it becomes more spicy and woody with bold black pepper notes, some ground coffee and a touch of smoke – I’d say this is a layer added by the charred barrel. It may not be reproduced in any way whatsoever without Ocado Limited's prior consent, nor without due acknowledgement. The identification must show a photograph, date of birth and either a holographic mark or ultraviolet feature. 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. Trudiann’s first act as the new Master Blender was the release of the Mount Gay Pot Still rum last year that was praised by many rum enthusiasts including myself.
