Mount Gay 1703 rum includes rums aged between 10 and 30 years that are joined by master distiller Allen Smith.
Mount Gay Distilleries is the oldest operating distillery in the Americas - producing rum in Barbados since 1703, hence the rum's name. It's original name was Mount Gilboa, and in 1801 renamed Mount Gay after the distillery's manager Sir John Gay Alleyne.
Sec et gourmand, un excellent rhum. Le prix est assez aléatoire, parfois à moins de 80€ c’est le top !
Préférer celui ci aux différents mount gilboa et autres last wards !
Jeg har lige været på cruise og der var vi blandt andet på Barbados og der var jeg på besøg på Mount Gay destilleriet.
Der var der mulighed for at smage på flere af deres forskellige rom og denne rom er deres absolut bedste rom som jeg også købte en med hjem af for 105 $
Der er smags noter af blomme, karamel og noter af eg. den er meget bedre en deres eller også gode rom XO.
Its has a sweet taste to it and a very long after taste
Have bought bottles of this in each of the last two years I've been to Barbados and it's one of the smoothest rums I've ever had
Nice rhum sur glace, il sent bon, mais pour le prix il y n'a des meilleurs.
Esperaba más de este ron premium, falto de sabores, solo se distingue olor y sabor a madera
A gift from a very good friend, and is now on my must have list. I felt it had a small bite. Liked it better on the rocks than straight. Nice aroma
This older rum has a whiskey bite but is very enjoyable mixed with cola or on the rocks straight.
Wow this is some good stuff; very smooth.
Nice balance dry and sweet.
I really like the mount gay flavour profile and this is the best
If you like the Mount Gay brand you will no doubt enjoy this. I find most of its ratings a bit over done. It was not spectacular, but it is definitely a quality rum.
The aroma in the bottle is nice...very nice. I can't really describe it but it is a positive sign. Upon sipping I detect a spicy oak (but very little of the bitterness that sometimes come with oak aging) along with a slight hint of sugar cane sweetness which becomes more apparent in the finish. Not a harsh burn but a pleasant enveloping warmth that flows down the throat before fading. Definitely a sipping rum.
Sugar: 0 gpl. This is an old time kind of rum. There is no sweetness to this rum. It's a dry but very smooth rum and it packs a punch in the mouth kind of heat. The heat fades and you are left with this nice after burn that lasts for quite a while so you can take your time with it. Dominant taste of oak and vanilla with a trace of caramel toffee. This is a well balanced rum and if you are a whiskey drinker this this will be a great rum for you, but I like my rums with a bit more sweetness and some other flavours in addition to the oak and vanilla.
None of the syrupy sweetness to be found in many other "premium aged rums", this is the real thing. All character in this rum is achieved by careful distillation and aging, not by adding sugar.
Robust, leathery, fruity, oakey - but all so well integrated into a complex whole that none seems to jump out, like the voices in an outstanding barbershop quartet.
If you find yourself tiring of the costant parade of rum old fashioneds masquerading as "premium rums", this is one you will want to try. If you don't want to spend the ~$100 or so it will set you back, Mt Gay extra old is not a bad runner up.
Decevant part rapport au MG.XO !
Exceptionnellement luminescent, il présente un profond et riche bouquet de chêne, de caramel et de cuir. parfaitement entrelacés avec des notes douces de banane mûre, fruits confits et d'épives douces, fondant lentement dans une longueur persistante et lisse.
Nice, unique taste to it. Can identify banana, vanilla and cocos.
Pleasant alcohol burn to it.
After a while this rum became even nicer, changed my score from an 8 to a 9.
Compared to the version XO , coffee has disappeared and is replaced by a more complex rum, more robust . Adolescence gives way to maturity and if alcohol is present , there is nothing private in this rum of a certain aromatic richness.
This tastes pretty similar to XO and it's triple the price. Always nice to add to the collection though. Since it's so expensive I take a nice sipper shot everytime my hockey team wins a game.
Très complexe avec nez ample et un final long et persistant, voici un rhum pleins de saveurs différentes a découvrir soi même!!! il y en a tant...
on peut encore le trouver a un prix accessible, et dans ce cas, il ne faut pas hésiter.
Much smoother than the XO. Certainly one of the better rums out there.
After touring Barbados, the discovery of Mount Gay was enlightening. This rum was so smooth, it had me hooked. Other rums have a strong or over bearing flavor. I guess being in business for 300 years has something to do with it.
Ce rhum viril affiche 43°, pourtant il n’agresse pas vos sens.
Le nez est délicat et subtil. En bouche, on a tout de suite une sensation agréable, avec une belle rondeur. Des notes boisées, épicées, des fruits secs, un quelque chose de réglisse... et tout ça sans excès de sucre, sans caramel prédominant.
Il est complexe, délicat, équilibré. Et au final un peu de gras lui apporte une très belle persistance.
Et comme je ne lui trouve pas de concurrents pour moins de 80€, je lui accorde la note maximum !
This is the best sipping rum that I have tried so far smooth and the taste is great.
It will be a challenge to beat this one
Piacevolissimi sentori di cioccolato bianco. Dolce e fresco al palato. Ottimo
One of the best rums I've ever tasted. Not yet found a better one.
This drink comes in a beautiful bottle. For what you pay for the rum you would expect more thickness and less of the burn as it goes down. Letting it sit or aadding ice is not something you expect to do to a rum your paying above 80.00 as the bitterness it leaves makes you question you purchase.
