This holiday season give the gift of Mount Gay Rum. The brand’s newly released limited-edition expression, The Master Blender Collection: Pot Still is sure to be a hit with family and friends.
The second edition in the exclusive series and the first blend from the new female Master Blender, Trudiann Branker, Pot Still celebrates the original way Mount Gay made rum for about 200 years, using only rums distilled in double retort pot stills. After selecting a specific batch of pot still liquid, Trudiann placed it into virgin ex-whiskey casks for six months prior to bottling, to enhance the spicy and roasted nutty notes.
This small batch is so exclusive that only 4,920 bottles are available globally; only 1,002 available in the U.S. This edition is bottled at cask strength, 48% abv, to reveal its true intensity.
The suggested retail price is $170.
Mount Gay Pot Still Rum’s profile is complex, unveiling different aromas with every sip.
Aroma: Warm butterscotch interlaced with rich mocha and toffee with underlying notes of plum.
Appearance: A brilliant golden amber hue and legs that cascade slowly down the glass when swirled.
Mouthfeel: An initially spicy kick, followed by dried fruits, culminating in dark chocolate and oak. A delicate, silky texture.
