Mount Gay 1703 Rum Barbados 750ml (Previously $100)

SKU #1057881

Five stars/Highest Recommendation Spirits Journal: "A blend of rums matured from 10 to 30 years. The gorgeous deep amber/burnished copper color is quite an eyeful; impeccable clarity. The first nosing detects a startling array of layered aromas, from vanilla bean to cinnamon to nut paste to maple to caramel -- this is molasses-based rum at its international finest; following six minutes of aeration, the nut aspect jumps out as does a hint of bourbon; a clinic on what oak-aged rum should be aromatically. Entry is ideally balanced between vigor/freshness and oaky maturity; midpalate offers a menu of flavors, including most prominently, sweet, charred oak, almond paste/nougat, vegetable oil, and maple. Ends up graceful yet potent. Mount Gay’s pinnacle achievement."

Wow. I had the pleasure of sampling 1703 and two other Mount Gay rums at a tasting at K&L tonight. This one was outstanding. It compares favorably to 40 year old Scotch or Cognac and has a lot in common with both of those. Very soft, very mature flavor. Tremendous complexity. And very mild oak flavors for being as old as it is. Highly recommended for sipping straight.
