Packaged in a specially designed decanter, this limited-edition blend of Mount Gay Distillery's oldest & finest stocks is a memento of Mount Gay Rum's first three hundred years. This edition is limited to 3000 bottles worldwide. The very special blend is composed of rums coming from 3 exceptional vintages - 1969, 1974, and 1976 Appearance Its deep amber colour is its reward after years of maturation in toasted oak. Once awakened by the swirling of the glass, the dark golden liquid makes its return trip, down the side of the vessel with coarse long "legs", revealing its high viscosity; again the result of perfect extraction of the vital ingredients of the barrel over years of paitient rest. Aroma Rich notes of smoked American White Oak, with aromatic barrel tonalities of vanilla, bitter almond, light spices and nutes in a complex but well-balanced combination of fruity elements; notably the full-bodies fragrance of prune, the light tartness of tamarind and the sweetness of banana and apricot. Taste Blended using the time-honoured formula of Eclipse, this product, with its full-bodied, almost syrupy texture brought about by extensive aging, possesses a rich intensity of smoked notes, oak character, bitter almond and a sweet, fruity character which are the hallmarks of a long and worthwhile contact with wood as some rums in the blend dating as far back as 1969.
