Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Deffinantly get the complexities in flavor that comes with charring.
Bought for me by a staff member visiting Barbados. This was a welcomed surprise. 2x 375ml bottles are in the gift set: Virgin Cask & Charred Cash.
A little lighter in the coloring than one would expect. Young on the nose but mature enough on the taste. Slightly toasted notes with a touch of pepper to finish with.
For me it’s not an 8/10 but not far off it.
I prefer this to both the Mount Gay XO, and the Mount Gay 1703 Master Select! It's a surprisingly nice release from Mount Gay, and relatively affordable too! As a disclaimer, I'm not really a fan of the Mount Gay rums, as I find them too dry. But this is a tad sweeter than the others, and very nicely smooth. I bought this as a two-pack with the Mount Gay Origin Series Vol I Virgin Cask, and a slightly prefer this to that, so this is one of my favorite Mount Gay rums!
Smells and tastes of caramel, spice, oak, bourbon, and vanilla. If you like Mount Gay rums, I highly recommend this!
