Un rom foarte fin, pentru cunoscători dar nu numai. O alegere excelentă pentru o seară de vară pe o plajă din Barbados bineînțeles :)

This is more like it: Vanilla, spices, oak in a complex package that is also full of finesse. A proof that without essences and added sugars, one can bring forth a great product.

My first try in the Mount Gay and the 1703 Old Cask was clearly a good catch !
Dry but not to much , this MG is well bodied but still easy to sip with a large bunch of aromas like oak and caramel. Really a nice dicovery from last tasting !

My experience with this rum is different from most. I've had a bottle in my cabinet for several years, and the bottle is still almost full. Giving it another try tonight, I get strong alcohol on the nose, with some burnt caramel behind it. It's smooth, only a little heat. I can detect some roasted nuts with the oak and the caramel. But on the whole, it doesn't do much for me. Everyone's palate is different. Not a bad rum, it's just not for me.

For the price should have blown me away but not even close. Solid sipper but should have delivered more

I bought this rum because I liked the XO so much. The bottle and cork pledge premium but it somehow lacks the well balanced flavors that make the XO great.

Exquisite! Ambrosia! As good as it gets! Had my first taste at the distillery in Barbados. I only serve to my very best friends.

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.

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.
