Around 12,000 bottles of Mount Gay 1703 Master Select will be released globally at price of US$150.00. This rum, which has an abv rating of 43%, features a new bottle design for the annual 1703 range. The range was first launched in 2009, and been a real hit ever since. “The most important ingredient in 1703 Master Select is time,” Allen Smith said, “We spend years carefully monitoring our rarest barrels to achieve a perfect balance of flavors. “It may take time, but when it all comes together, the taste is worth the wait, but once it’s gone it’s gone and you have to wait until the following year. It is important that you don’t wait, because 12,000 bottles world wide will disappear in a real hurry, so we recommended that you grab it as soon as you see it.”
Mount Gay’s 1703 range pays homage to the year the Barbados distillery started production, using the brand’s oldest reserves.
