Mount Gay Extra Old Rum Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Simon Difford (CLASS Magazine)

    Appearance
    Clear, golden amber with polished gold highlights

    Aroma
    Spicy apricot, ripe banana and vanilla with rum and raison ice-cream.

    Taste
    Fiery but velvety, honeyed palate with cooked fruit, ripe banana, toffee apple and sweet pastry notes overlaid with spicy oak - cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.

    Aftertaste
    Long dry oaky finish. Light-bodied but very rich and full-flavoured.

    4/5 Praiseworthy

    Doesn''t compare to Diplomatica. Doesn''t have Diplomatica''s sweetness.

    Ice, XO and a splash of bitters will have you back on Dover or Rockley Beach. Perfect rum.

    Top notch

  • Rosso 16 October 2013

    The best rum I have tasted and a favourite of mine since my first visit to Barbados in 1987. Smooth, rich flavour with a hint of bourbon hiding in the background. Great on its own but also superb with coke. A "pint of Bajan" is a must to quench that thirst. Recommended.

    One of my favourite rums. Sip it on a Tuesday afternoon with some tropical fruit, brown sugar and your choice of junk food and half a bottle later you become ridiculously handsome.

  • Alistair James 14 January 2013

    Not a favourite rum, but I managed to polish off half a bottle one Saturday morning without realising. You get a brown sugar sweetness and some tropical fruit - its the junk food of the rum world (in a good way) and shouldn't be compared to 'sipping' rums, although its worth noting that half bottle vanished without mixer or ice.

    You can taste the Carribean Sun! On a cold Winters night it warms the soul.

  • Angus J Whitehead 23 April 2012

    Another staple of mine! I have come to judge bars on their selection of rum and whisky. This is one of the marker bottles I look for along with Diplomatico ER. A very good rum for the price. If you like your sipping rum, get a bottle of this, El Dorado 15 and Diplomatico ER

  • Skinner,kernow 12 March 2012

    This stuff is pure gold,open the bottle and drink it,no coke, no ice. Epic.

  • Benny C 8 November 2011

    Out of the premium rums i have tried this one is hard to beat for the money. Rich aromas of brown sugar, honey and vanilla oak also translate to the palate. A good all rounder and exceptional value!

    As a known drinker of Mount Gay Eclipse I was bought a bottle of the Extra Old as a gift and all I can say is it is quite simply amazing. It has a much greater depth of flavour than the Eclipse, with a hint of peaty whisky about it. It almost seemed like sacrilege to try to tame it with a dash of Fentimen's tonic water. I will most certainly be purchasing more in the not too distant future.

    Very complex and full bodied. Suberb!
