Mount Gay Rum, Extra Old, Barbados 750ml (Previously $50)

SKU #996039 93 points Wine Enthusiast

 This dry rum has a soft amber color and an enticingly warm caramel fragrance. On the tongue, it has a soft feel, with crème brûlée and banana flavors, braced up with lightly tannic black-tea notes and a baking spice finish. While a versatile choice for all manner of cocktails, the spice profile seems a natural for enlivening warm winter toddies.  (12/ 2011)

K&L Notes

Bourbon drinkers, take note. This is the crossover rum you've been looking for. So much like bourbon that a blind tasting would fool almost any professional drinker. Aged in bourbon casks, the rum has soaked up every ounce of the barrel flavor, making it smooth and supple. Gold Medal Winner - 2009 Ministry of Rum Tasting Competition.

This was one of three rums being poured at a tasting at K&L tonight. I mostly drink bourbon and rye. This was nothing like any rum I'm used to and really does have a bourbon flavor profile. There's sweetness, a bit of spice, mild oak, and plenty of tropical fruits.

This works straight and should be good on the rocks. Frank was recommending it with a twist of lime and a dash of bitters. I would love to see what this does to an old fashioned.
