Mount Gay 1703
Mount Gay 1703 is the latest gift from the world’s oldest rum distillery, conceived to commemorate the year Mount Gay began making rum (1703). Steeped in history, and filled with consummate ability the rum that has been achieved is a stunning blend of 10-30 year old spirit. With munificent fragrances of toasted coconut, dried nuts, dark cocoa and clean molasses (or maple), we are compelled to drink. To taste there are oily flavors of turbinado sugar, dried tropical fruit, nuts, vanilla, finespun spices and caramel that merge on the palate with tones of dry oak to seamlessly transition into the finish-- which is graceful, rich, layered and exquisite-- truly fantastic!
