About this deal

The original sugar plantation and distillery were acquired by William Sandiford in the early 18th century.

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. It may not be reproduced in any way whatsoever without the prior consent of Waitrose Limited nor without due acknowledgement.They mention that its a genuine sipping rum, wonderfully tasteful without a horrible burn and that its beautifully matured. On the palate showcases overripe fruit, baked banana and light tropical fruit with more oak presence and tobacco. Definitely now one of my favourite rums, it’s not too sweet, being nicely balanced and smooth drinking. Vanilla and passion fruit again, apricot, green tea, ripe bananas with a touch of green chilies and basil. The black barrel blend is among the most prestigious that Mount Gay have to offer and with the help of our custom laser-engraving process, t will be all the more so.

MG Eclipse, MG XO and MG Black Barrel all got a modern new look, with the last two having their recipes tweaked by the fairly new Mount Gay Master Blender – Trudiann Branker. Mount Gay Black Barrel is distilled in small batches using a special double-pot, single-column process. I'm used to drinking rum as a mixer with coke when I'm out, the standard much sweeter, lower alcohol content ones. This may affect nutrition and allergen information therefore you should always check product labels and not rely solely on the information presented here.Following that it looks like Trudiann didn’t waste any time with the release of the new Mount Gay Black Barrel Double Cask Blend and Mount Gay XO Triple Cask Blend. These cookies are needed for essential functions such as signing in, storing products in your trolley and making payments. The latest from Master Blender Allen Smith, Black Barrel is a small batch, handcrafted blend made of matured double pot distillates and aged column distillates.

The smoke is there again, but I feel like the transition from the initial taste and mid/end palate is smoother.
