Mount Gay Rum Tasting
Nov. 2021
My fiance and I had a great time tasting Rum at Mount Gay. We were greeted with complimentary rum punches in a patio area with mist machines to help keep us cool. The tour was great. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. She noticed my fiance could handle his rum so she poured him more during our tasting which he appreciated. We tasted 4 different rums and enjoyed our experience. The rooms for the tour were cool with air conditioning. I would recommend this tasting tour!

We loved our tour with Rumal, who gave a fun and detailed backstory of the rum, as well as taught us how to appreciate the subtle hints of each. Eat a meal before going.
