Wine Enthusiast 94 points - Finished in “deeply toasted and charred” Bourbon casks, this mouthwatering small-batch rum skews to the sweeter side, offering bold notes of cola, allspice and vanilla, finishing brisk and spicy. Sip straight or mix for the ultimate rum & Coke. - K.N.
We were one of a select few
invited to take part in crafting our own batch of this renowned rum. Personally crafted with our own hands, we have helped to write the next chapter of rumís rich history with this blend.
This special blend of Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum was
hand-blended by us and 20 of New York Cityís top Mixologists
with Master Blender, Allen Smith, at the Brooklyn Historical
Society Museum in New York in July 2015. We were NJís
ONLY retailer selected to participate in this special area
Origins of Craft, the Mount Gay Masterís Session, is a unique opportunity to learn from the master himself to create a blend of Black Barrel Rum. By learning about the rum blending and maturation process, we evaluated and selected a series of mature distillates that created a batch that speaks to us personally, and delivers just the right amount of color and smokiness that come from double-barrel maturation - complex aromas of spice, toasted wood, followed by fruit. On the palate, bold spice balanced with oaky vanilla warms you with its medium body and long finish Ė a Classic Black Barrel!
