Mount Gay 1703 Rum

70cl | 43% ABV | Barbados

Mount Gay 1703 celebrates the foundation of the Barbados-based Mount Gay distillery, and it was created by Allen Smith, the master distiller.

On the nose, there's a refined harmony of fruity rich vanilla, banana, oaky and mocha notes. To taste, a delicious balance of raisin, spice and toast. Exceptional roundness with a long, delicate finish. One to savour neat.
