Mount Gay 9 Year Old 2011 Barbados Pure Single Rum
Mount Gay 9 Year Old 2011 is the third release from the world-famous Bajan distiller to grace the Habitation Velier collection. Mount Gay don’t let any bottler other than Habitation Velier put their name on the bottle, such is the high esteem they are held in.
Distilled three times in a double retort by Mount Gay’s former Master Distiller, Frank Ward, it has been matured in ex-Bourbon barrels for almost a decade in the tropical warmth of Barbados. The heat and long ageing caused 64% to be lost to the angels’ share before it was eventually bottled at 52.3% with no sugar or additives. The result is a truly awesome Mount Gay; silky in consistency and packed with festive flavours like raisins, Christmas spices, varnished wood, Christmas trees, strawberry jam, cherry chocolate liqueurs, marzipan and just the vaguest suggestion of Islay whisky’s medicinal flourish. If you know a rum lover, then this is the Christmas present sorted. But be quick, because we only secured three bottles.
