Mount Gay Black Barrel Bottling Note

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. It is also finished in heavily charred bourbon barrels before being bottled.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Richly warming notes of plump sultanas, cracked black pepper and creamy vanilla from the bourbon barrel finish.

Palate: Toasty. Deeply spicy, with plenty of cinnamon. A hint of liquorice and more vanilla.

Finish: A long, balanced finish, drifting between sweet and spice.

Overall: A fab step up from the standard Mount Gay rum.

User Reviews of the Mount Gay Black Barrel

It's worth it

Just trying now. I've paid only £17 pounds(thanks Gibraltar). Absolutely recommendable. It is strong in nose, however in mouth is smooth, spicy and with an incredible long finish. I beg your pardon but I'm lack of vocabulary because I'm not an English native. Or perhaps it could be because I'm speechless after tasting this overwhelming rum.

Damn Near Perfect

I tried Mount Gay Black Barrel for the first time a few months ago and was "wowed" by the spicy flavor. I'm into my second bottle now. This fantastic sipping rum with a bourbon-like character is as close to perfect as I can imagine. And it's affordable! Do yourself a favor, and try some now. Cheers!

The first time I tasted this Rum was at the factory in Bridgetown in June 2014 following a rather heavy night on Rum punch at Harbour Lights....let's face it, I was hanging! It was the most fantastic 'hair of the dog' I have ever experienced. What I like best about it is that it doesn't burn the throat on the way down like other rums/whiskies. It is very easy to drink straight as it is fairly sweet and spicy. Thoroughly recommended.

Initial impressions

I am not giving a star rating. This is the first bottle of rum I have ever bought. It is nice, very nice. In fact I've already had 6 ounces of it. 3 neat and three in an Old Fashioned (I was curious because it is very bourbon-y from the maturation). I will give a full review later. But initial impressions? I would say, for the price, this is worth the money, in the hope that it will open up over the course of the bottle.

Google this one and get it now

If you look at all the runs out there and see how a lot of them have added sugar, this one is real and authentic as it gets. Stock up now with the best kept secret in terms of aged rum within bourbon barrels. Will not disappoint.

I don't know a lot about Rum but my husband received it as a gift. I enjoyed the spicy flavour and I also liked the after taste. I did not get the drowsy feeling I normally get after consuming alcohol.

another rare great rum for the asking price

gotten on sale in PA (USA) for under $'s got all the expected characteristics you'd expect in a quality dark rum...heady nose of vanilla and slight spice...the subdued spicy note is perfectly melded with the demarera sugar bomb flavor is further carried over by the thick creamy mouthfeel and carried to a looping, eschatological edge by the finish... ;) recommended!

probably what The Most Interesting Man in the World sips when not sipping cerveza xxx ;)
