A very special Bajan rum, Mount Gay XO is now receiving long-overdue international recognition. Full-flavoured and extremely mellow, with a lingering finish.

Mount Gay Extra Old Rum Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • 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.

    4/5 Praiseworthy

    Excellent rum; smooth and flavoursome. Not as sweet as some, but then it’s not full of added sugar and flavours like Diplomatico.

    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.

    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).
