They employ a combination of pot and column stills, blending together the intense aromas and flavors of the first with the smoothness of the second. Over the past 4 decades, they have had 4 Master Blenders, the current one being Trudiann Branker. The spirit matures in American Whiskey, Bourbon, and Cognac oak casks, with others being brought in for various special editions. Mount Gay is home to the largest stock of aged rum in Barbados.The Black Barrel is distilled using a traditional column and double retort pot still. The rums are first separately matured in American whiskey casks between 3 and 7 years before being blended and finished for 6 months in heavily-charred ex-bourbon oak barrels hence the name. Its a big and bold Bajan rum with plenty of spice, as well as prominent oak notes and a pleasant sweetness.Pick a bottle up today!
