Mount Gay unveils the Master Blender Collection: The Port Cask Expression, the third limited-edition in the exclusive series.
Created by the Distillery’s first female Master Blender, Trudiann Branker, Port Cask pushes the boundaries of rum-making by incorporating the use of Tawny Port casks for the first time in Mount Gay’s history.
The result, a beautifully complex blend that is in line with the signature Mount Gay Rum profile, but with a twist; giving notes of cherry, dried fruit, oak, prune and almond on the palate.
“For this expression, I wanted to take our rum making to another level and utilize a cask that we don’t typically work with at Mount Gay, while still remaining true to over 300 years of brand heritage,” stated Trudiann Branker, Master Blender.
“After trying different casks and evaluating the resulting flavours, I selected Tawny Port casks for the bold expression of notes typically found in Port. I am thrilled to release this rich and multi-faceted rum, as well as create something unique and different as part of the Master Blender Collection.”
Bottled at 55% ABV, the expressions has the aroma notes of vanilla, caramel, almond, dried fruit, with cherry, dried fruit, oak, spice, prune, currents and almond on the palate.
