Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum 'Sunset Corners Blend'

(Barbados)

 

$27.99 a bottle

 

Several months ago, Sunset Corners' two rum aficionados, Larry and Yoan, had a unique opportunity presented to us from Mount Gay Rums. Gathered in a room of rum experts that were given the chance to create their very own rum blend utilizing very special and unique rum barrels from Barbados' Mount Gay Distillery. After much time sniffing and tasting, considering the weight, the sweetness, and the flavors, they created a Sunset Corners blend that was then produced as a single barrel (that's about thirty cases) specifically for Sunset Corners.

 

This very special rum arrived at the shop yesterday and we couldn't be more excited! Right on the bottle this one of a kind, collector's rum states: Sunset Corners blend, created by Larry Solomon and Yoan Barzaga!

 

Rum, the signature spirit of the Caribbean has a storied history. First as aguardiente de cana (an early form of rum), then in its more refined expressions, the history of rum is inseparable from the history of the Caribbean islands, with its highs (rum ignited island economies) and lows (it also fueled the slave trade). Mount Gay is the grandfather of rum dynasties, at least according to recorded evidence. The Barbados-based brand traces its heritage back to a historical document from 1703. That make the company a whopping 310 years old.

 

In honor of its anniversary, the company released Mount Gay Black Barrel, a new small-batch rum that is aged in charred oak barrels (thus, the name) that previously were used to age bourbons. It was this Rum that is the foundation of our Sunset Corners blend. The bourbon-aging adds a new level of complexity to this rum, rendering a complex, yet bright and fruity expression. It is delicious - smooth enough to sip, yet cocktail friendly. The molasses-based rum is a blend of double-distilled spirits.

 

This amber-hued rum is boldly flavored, with bright aromas of candied fruit, spice, and vanilla. On the palate, it is rich and warm

with a full body and medium finish. At $28, it's a bargain for a sipping rum (and affordable enough to mix into cocktails.)

 

As the old saying goes: "Try it, you'll like it."

Then come into the shop and tell Larry and Yoan

what a wonderful job they did!
