Mount Gay K&L Exclusive Black Barrel Single Cask #1140 Barbados Rum (750ml)

SKU #1134941

Last March, David and I flew to Barbados to visit the Mount Gay rum distillery and participate in what would be a celebration of their new label called Black Barrel - a younger, Bourbon cask-aged rum that would offer mixability as well as serious rocks potential. The standard Eclipse has always been the workhorse mixer and the Extra Old has always been one of our favorite sippers. A balance between the two - both in age and price-point - seemed like a fantastic idea. Since the Black Barrel rum would consist of Mount Gay finished in charred Bourbon casks, Remy decided to let a few retailers select their own barrels to bottle exclusively. We were at the top of their list. After careful tasting and note-taking, David and I decided that we should definitely take barrel #1140. It had the mellow cane flavor we love in a Mai Tai or Daiquiri, but added just the right amount of Bourbon spice and richness to accent that soft vanilla. The entry is dark and rich, but the finish is fresh with a flutter of sarsparilla and pepper. You can nurse a glass if you like, but, while delicious, the Black Barrel isn't a rum to sip slowly or concentrate heavily on. It's meant to be drunk in a single afternoon with friends, or dumped into a glass with tonic water and lime. We put away bottle after bottle at the local Bajan rum shacks with nothing but a few ice cubes. This is a high-quality, flavorful, tasty rum from a barrel that will only be available at K&L.
