Mount Gay 1703 Rum (700ml)
The 1703 old cask selection commemorates the date where first evidence of distilling took place at the Mount Gay distillery. Master blender Allen Smith, has utilized aged rums ranging from 10 to 30 years matured in former bourbon casks giving the rum a cognac-like appeal. Mount Gay’s rum is fermented in oak vats, (many distilleries now are using stainless steel to maximise productivity). The wooden vats result in a varying ferment result due to the porous nature of the oak. Many believe this imparts desired flavour compounds in the rum and other spirits alike.
