Soon to be Gone.. never forgotten! Mount Gay Special Reserve
I still find it on the shelves but it won't be around much longer as they've discontinued it and the "Sugar Cane" bottling as well.. I've loved this rum since I wasn't old enough to drink it legally. I took about 15 years off from Rum and just a few years ago developed a taste for the sweet stuff again.
I know a lot of folks complained of the ripe banana / almond / vanilla flavors that were so dominant in Special Reserve but I found them to be unique, balanced and delicious. I absolutely love a strong serving in a tall glass, over ice, a big squeeze of lime and a splash of tonic water.
I am so mad at the distillery.. how dare they kill this treasure...
