The nose is very pronounced spicy oak notes. You can almost taste the Bourbon that was in these casks prior. Vanilla, a nice creamy nuttiness and a slight hint of banana, toffee and caramel. Despite the ABV there is very little “menace” as I like to call it. It’s still a very nice well balanced, skillfully blended spirit.

Sipped even at 63% it is a surprisingly mellow and pleasant experience. I would recommend a little water but not much – just to bring out all the flavour. Not too much or you might as well stuck with the regular XO.

Woody and slightly sweeter than the regular XO but still smooth

Amazing back-to-back rum tasting with Falcon91Wolvrn03 continued with Mount Gay XO Cask Strength. Nice old school bottle and label design. Dark golden color. Very boozy and woody to your nose and palate when neat sipped with very limited amount of depthness. Surprisingly very short ending.

N- Authentic good rum that brought smile to face are hard to come by. Nose heating at 63% with rich sweetness of creamy oak, earth, banana yoghurt and liquorice along coastal edge. Deep sweet phenol waving in after breath. Sticky sweet glutinous rice pudding with mango. Complex. (92/23)

P- Succulent, vanilla, banana with limey. Caramelize banana skin sort of sweet tannin and rubbery mouthfeel, tarry rope lurking. (90/22)

F- Long, mouth coating, chewy and firm, full of oak fruits and minty. Traces of desired bitterness developed, with fine strength careless on the tongue overtimes. (92/23)

B/B- 93/23

Weighted Rate- 91pt

A nice mahogany color with gray green reflections. On the nose are classical notes of banana and chocolate with also coffee. But it seems more complex than the normal XO version. There are also candied fruits, nuts. On the palate, it explodes, the alcohol is well present but very well integrated. The whole is very homogeneous with chocolate always present, candied fruits, pastry notes as usual for Mount Gay. A superb final very long and very complex, it's very rich. A superb realization that finally gives the possibility to the fans of cask strength to find among this brand a product to live up to their expectations.
Real rate = 9,5

I felt the flavour was too subtle - it lacked the punch I'm looking for in a sipping rum. Not as smooth as hoped either.

I tried this popular rum. All in all I must say it is sweet but not too much. No great fantasy for me but a good time. A very balanced rum that you easily sip. I just expected a special twist !

Yes, it's classic. But is almost perfect! Beautiful colour, nice flavour, not to much, not less. With 43% is quite strong, but the alcohol is under control, nothing to shock your nose.
But the flavour is rich! Classically mix af vanilla, caramel and chocolate, and a little bit spice at the end. Maybe because of alcohol, but I think is something real there.
One of the best! For sure is the oldest :)

I had this in fall of 2019 and for the price (Euro 35 on sale) it is an outstanding mixer. The first taste is VERY harsh, like Hennessy VS Cognac (good for cooking). With ice cubes it is MUCH better and more like a whiskey. For just sipping, like a good cognac, it was disappointing. However, for mixing the strong flavours really came through in a positive way. A very good value. Overall, a 9 -.

While killing time one hot afternoon in downtown tinsel town, I came across a liquor store that somehow had this bottle , so I scooped it up and boogied figuring I just scored. Well I did. This bad boy is exactly what Mount Gay should be putting out. ( In order to TRY and keep up with the islands competition ) This is pure Bajan rum at it’s finest. Hints of vanilla, oak, butter and bourbon. I hope I can find another, but if not, better to have drank and lost than never have !

It took me a while to get around to this review. I was busy enjoying this. The first sip is a surprising burn, even when you're on your fourth, first sip. On the second sip, you realise this rum is tantalising. It's rich, full, varied and subtle.

A nice shot sipped, is an experience that makes you smile. every sip, pleasantly surprises you. Caramel, oak, spice, toffee, vanilla, toast, banana... Everything complements each other and i'm excited about this rum, and where Mount Gay is going.
