Mount Gay Black Barrel is a small batch, handcrafted rum recently created by master distiller Allen Smith. It is a blend of both matured double pot distillates and aged column distillates which are finished in Bourbon oak barrels. The unique blend delivers a bold and balanced flavour.
Tasty, but not quite great
I have bought this one together with XO, black barrel is of course less refined, does not share the ex-cognac blend share which added lighter tones to XO triple cask blend, but otherwise it the base taste is quite you can easily identify with XO. Beautiful, rich nose of charred oak and fruits, well matching taste with some vanilla tones from ex-bourbon barrels, pronounced earthy finish, decent sipper, good value for the money.
I was lucky enough to discover this on an international flight. Enjoyed it so much I bought a bottle when we landed
The nose is quite fragrant with depth, as toasty oak mixes with raisins and baking spices. The palate has lots of toasty wood too, and a hot Peppery bite on the finish, which detracts as a potential sipper.This is a quality mixer. It’s good but side by side with the XO, is clearly inferior, imo.
The good price is the main advantage, but I still advice to save more money and buy the XO.
Black barel is harsh, more alcoholic and missing the complexity and fine tones of XO.
But if you want some real (without added sugar) rum for mixing this one is a good choice.
Очень близкая вкусоароматика к семилетней HC, однако спиртуозность заметно ниже. Если HC даже со льдом обжигает слишком сильно, данный ром пьется без охлаждения очень легко и приятно.
