Mount Gay 1703 Old Cask Selection

Top 10 Rums

El Dorado 21 Year Old Special Reserve is a fruity blend aged in oak Bourbon barrels

Named for the year in which the Mount Gay distillery was founded, this premium product of Barbados displays the type of craftsmanship and refinement of flavors that one would expect from the oldest continuously active rum brand in the world. Made from Barbadian sugarcane and coral-filtered water, Mount Gay 1703 goes through both single and continuous distillation processes for increased complexity before being aged for up to 30 years in lightly charred oak Bourbon barrels from Kentucky. The finished product is fruity, but not in a paper-umbrella-adornment way. Rather, the amber-hued rum features banana and candied fruits on the palate that linger long after the 86-proof nectar warms the innards.

Origin: Barbados

Price $102
