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)

    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

    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

    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).

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