- Appearance : Coppery orange.
- Nose : Demonstrative, fragrant. Turkish delight, orange, beeswax, prunes and fresh tobacco precede notes of precious woods, vanilla and dark chocolate. Cocoa beans, cashew nuts and raisins add a ‘serious’ note to these aromas.
- Palate : Fine, smooth. Remarkably balanced, its sour, bitter, salty and sweet flavours are all served up with equal portions of sugar cane. Herbaceous and floral (honeysuckle and geranium), it maintains its dynamic character.
- Overall : Smooth, persistent. Its lively bitterness languishes over exotic fruit (mango and guava) and rose petals. The ginger is grated. The retro-nasal olfaction reveals vanilla and the glass exudes celery and red kuri squash.
- The brand
Mount Gay rum is without a doubt one of the oldest rums in the world. Officially established in 1703 in Barbados, the birthplace of rum, production most likely began around 1663. Still created using traditional methods, today these rums enjoy an excellent international reputation, as can be seen with Eclipse, which has been its flagship expression since 1910. The secret to their indisputable quality, a subtle combination of character and seduction, is the great care taken over its production and maturation. Its rums have won numerous medals at international competitions, with Extra Old enjoying particular success.
