Mount Gay Extra Old Rum Reviews
Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange
Nose: Stacks of fruit: raisins, prunes and sultanas with touches of banana and pineapple.
Palate: The fruit continues on the palate, accompanied by dark spice and a touch of char.
Finish: Long and spicy.
Tasting Notes by Simon Difford (CLASS Magazine)
Clear, golden amber with polished gold highlights
Spicy apricot, ripe banana and vanilla with rum and raison ice-cream.
Fiery but velvety, honeyed palate with cooked fruit, ripe banana, toffee apple and sweet pastry notes overlaid with spicy oak - cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
Long dry oaky finish. Light-bodied but very rich and full-flavoured.

Lovely smooth, mellow flavour tastes so good.
Excellent rum; smooth and flavoursome. Not as sweet as some, but then it’s not full of added sugar and flavours like Diplomatico.
Outstanding paired with a Trinidad Topes limitada cigar
very smooth and lovely tasting drink
One of the best golden rums about. Five star.
MGXO is not as sweet as Zacapa 23 or Diplomatico Reserva ( green bottle) But is very balanced and quite elegant. It is a sipper, I do prefer Arcan Rum from Mauritius ( this is so special,bold flavour that stays elegant and special. Mount Gay XO is a very balance medium or more sweet Rum.
Agree with previous reviewers: rich, smooth and delicious. Loved the St Nicholas Abbey 12 year old rum also; exceptionally smooth
An exceptionally smooth flavoursome rum brings back happy memories of silver anniversary holiday in Barbados!
A rum to savour bringing back memories of the Lime Grove bar in Barbados.
Outstanding rum. A classic. The sophistication of whiskey with the soothing flavor of a pure rum.
Enjoyed this over two holidays in Barbados. Brought some back and it tastes almost as good in the UK (just the sun, smiles and reggae missing). A smooth rum which can be sipped or mixed (diet coke or ginger both work well).
Creme de la Creme
