Mount Gay Special White Rum – 1970s
The Rum: Mount Gay Special White
Distilled : n.i. – 1970s
Bottled: n.i. – 1970s
An old white rum from Barbados, bottled somewhere in the 1970s. So still a 750 ml bottle with screwcap; import for Germany by Maykamp.
Nose: Soft with subtle vegetal notes, some sweets with a herbal touch. Rather mineral, wet slate. Also a sweet fruity aroma that reminds me a bit of those maraschino cherries.
Taste: again rather soft and round. The alcohol is present and tingles the throat and tongue, but is in no way aggressive. A rather sweet taste with a hint of aniseed. Some peppermint gives it an extra fresh flavour. Also some green bananas on the background.
Finish: A rather longue finish that is medium sweet. The peppermint stays until the very end. Well balanced rum!
