‘Mount Gilboa is from St Lucy, Barbados. Mount Gilboa rum is triple distilled using traditional pot-stills, produced in the oldest Barbados family owned distillery, with Frank Ward, a key figure in the West Indies Rum & Spirits Producers’ Association, overseeing production. For over 300 years there has been a history of rum-making at Mount Gilboa. Aubrey Ward was a passionate pioneer in the production of fine rums and the distillation of rum by pot still remains a cherished family tradition. This passion continued into his 4th generation descendant, Frank Ward Jr, who created this unique rum encapsulating the rich history. Mount Gilboa is currently the only blend sold by this company but the long traditions of rum provides a marvelous base for other spirits to develop. This is triple distilled in pot stills at the same distillery in Barbados that makes Mount Gay. A wonderfully refined, characterful rum.
Rich amber in colour. Rich aromas of summer citrus and tropical fruits, with a hint of toffee and caramel. A robust entry, due to ageing in American oak barrels and triple pot still, this leads to a vibrant, off-dry and full-bodied palate with nut toffee and brown spices flavours. Finishing with a linger fade of coffee, cocoa, cigar box, pepper and a copper tang. A dash of water opens up further intriguing complexities
