New to rum, but the smell of this is amazing. At first I thought it was banana. As Iโ€™m going through the bottle, I am tasting the charred barrel, caramel, even cherry, and other flavors. Taste is good, but the smell is divine. What could be better than this?

Aged in Whiskey and Bourbon barrels.
Nose: Rich and wild. Smoky, wooden barrels. But also fruits an freshly cut sugar cane.
Palate: Pretty dry, a bit smoky and a bit sharp. No sweetness. Warm body with a long finish.
I donโ€˜t like it, but I respect it.

Smoky, caramel and whisky flavours. Whisky flavours not my cup of tea but a very good rum still

This rum is good. Very good. Itโ€™s smooth and easy. My only knock on it is after trying funky Jamaican rums itโ€™s almost too easy to drink. Itโ€™s easily accessible in NC liquor stores which is a huge plus.

Nose is smooth, slightly sweet and vanilla. Palate is strong vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

Great rum, especially as an entry sipper

Really tasty, no after effects. Found it in the Caribbean.

I enjoy this room. It pales in comparison to its triple cask brother, but it is still good. Itโ€™s a bit punchy with the booze, but I do like that on occasion.

Tried neat just after opening. Big mistake. Harsh. 43% abv and sure as hell tasted like it. Thought bottle was mislabeled and was drinking whiskey. Okay I am exaggerating but given that I have had MG eclipse and XO triple cask not impressed at all with either I was ready to just admit that MG rums are just not for me. I gave this a good 15 minutes added little bit of ice and it really transformed into a really nice sipper. The whiskey taste is still there but so are other nice subtle flavors and subtle sweetness and the harshness was toned down. Really very nice Bajan rum.

This is a bit more of a sipper than reg mount gay The age definitely wakes up the rum

Lacks the depth of some older rums but a nice edition to their portfolio. Would not buy it again just not my cup of tea a bit harsh neat, needed some ice.

I rate this about a 7.3, so it gets rounded down to 7. This is a great sipper for after dinner. Sweet, with vanilla burnt sugar notes. Slight alcohol burn that tapers off to a nice warmth with a medium long finish. If you can find it on sale, it is definitely worth the price, if not, there are slightly better rums in the same price range. I always keep a bottle or two of this on my shelf. It is decent in a rum and Coke, but that is a waste of this rum, much better to have neat after dinner.
