Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes from Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Intense brown sugar, sultana fruitiness and flaky pastry – a Portuguese custard tart filled with raisin jam. Roasted banana notes follow, liberally dusted with cinnamon and nutmeg, with a hints of tarry black liquorice hiding underneath. Then more fruit rolls in: candied peel and stewed apples with lots of sugar and spice.

    Palate: Creamy bananas to start – both rich and ripe and dunked in a banana cream pie – with lashings of nutmeg and hot cinnamon. As the heat subsides, the brown-sugar-encrusted pastry from the nose appears, along with sweet banoffee and a touch of balancing barrel-char bitterness. Hints of Juicy Fruit chewing gum sit at the back along with dark liquorice pastilles and rich caramel.

    Finish: Sugar and spice, with a touch of musky green leaves and lingering banana – lightly tannic and not quite ripe.

    Comment: It's Mount Gay dialled up to 11. Rich, thick, spicy and sweet, with layers of complexity and nuance – a proper sipping rum.

    Tried this at the end of the whisky of the year tasting. Absolutely superb stuff. Certainly can hold its own against a whisky of a similar price. Whether its a good price for a rum though I can't be sure.
