Bought this 5 years ago when in Barbados, saving it for a special occasion. Beautiful light golden colour with toffee caramel on the nose. Smooth finish with a bit of burn and in my opinion far better than the XO. Agreed it is very expensive but beautiful.

IMO, over some ice or a splash of cold water to open up is the way to go with this one. Some burn into ally but finishes nice. Grows on you as you try to pick up on tasting notes. Nice nose. Tasting notes reveal themselves as you continue to sip.

On the rocks, smooth and easy sipping. Toffee on the nose, citrus and vanilla. Enjoyable.

More richness, leather and wood than Extra Old, but pricy. For slow sipping.

This is a very good rum but for double the cost of XO? I find this true of many top tier selections like; Ron Abuelo Centutia, Flor de Cana 25. These rums just don’t hold up to the price, except for Ron Centenario, and Diplimatico. Hey it’s a good rum not great and not great value.

A very decent drop indeed. On the rocks and with a pipeful of Navy Flake is a good way to end the day.

Není snadné tuto láhev hodnotit jako rum. V kategorii rumů by dostal jen 7b. V kategorii whiskey by dostal 8b. A v kategorii koňaků pak 9b. Rozhodnu se tedy pro střed 8b. Protože nejde o jen tak prvoplánový kousek. Má mnoho chutí, málo po rumu hodně po koňaku.

N- Soft ashy notes guided by oak to molasses, consistently spicy gummy nuance evolved to air dried ham with light hint of brine. Problem lies on the weak strength., (86/20)

P- Though more talkative on palate, which is always a welcoming sign. Chocolate and herbs. Oak rises and brought out the dry nutty nuances. Timely bitterness, and creamy olive. (87/21)

F- Medium long, waxy, deep echoing oak with subtle hint of cigar smokes, dry spices. Like the compote of bitterness with traces of molasses. (87/21)

B/B - 87/21

Weighted Rate - 83pt

Ich mag alle Mount Gays, angefangen vom Eclipse bis zum XO,
deshalb dachte ich beim 1703 das allerfeinste zu bekommen und war sehr gespannt.

Die Flasche sieht nett aus, der Karton war leider billiger und liebloser als der vom Black Barrel.

Der Geschmack hat mich wahrlich schockiert:
Diese durchgängige Schärfe kann für mich nur daher kommen das hier weitaus mehr junge als 30jährige Rums in meiner Flasche gelandet sind. Dazu kam leider noch ein klebstoffartiger Geruch
