Released in celebration of the brand's 311-year history, Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum reinforces the craft, refinement, and unparalleled excellence at Mount Gay since 1703. Mount Gay has continued a long-standing Barbadian tradition for producing the world's oldest refined rum. Only the finest sugar cane molasses and pure water that's filtered through the coral heart of the island of Barbados are selected. Mount Gay Black Barrel is double pot distilled and maturated for a second time in bourbon oak barrels. Black Barrel has a higher proportion of double distillates than other Mount Gay rums and after hand selection by Master Blender Allen Smith, Black Barrel is the only marque finished in charred bourbon oak barrels. The result is a bold tasting rum with notes of pepper, spice and wood that provide a remarkable body and fullness. On the nose, Black Barrel blends fruit, oaky vanilla, and sweet caramel.
