Mount Gay

Category: Rum (Aged 3 years or less)

Date Tasted:
Country: Barbados

Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of vanilla custard, bananas foster, and coffee gelato with a supple, crisp, dry medium body and a warming, interesting, medium-long finish that exhibits notes of Spanish coffee, orange peel, and glazed nuts. A pure and delicious rum that will be very wide-appealing.

Rum Aged 3 years or less

Añejo and Age-Dated Rums are aged Rums from different vintages or batches that are mixed together to insure a continuity of flavor in brands of Rum from year to year. Some aged Rums will give age statements stating the youngest Rum in the blend (e.g., 10-year-old Rum contains a blend of Rums that are at least 10 years old). A small number of French island Rums are Vintage Dated.
