Recommendable to most
This is a great sipping rum, especially if you're just starting out. Not as funky as other sippers in the same price range, but still delicious. A very round flavor profile that just envelopes your pallet. Goes down easy.
This was my first XO and wow was it worth it. Tempted to go 10 but not sure I can place it above Diplomatico which is my favourite to date. But this is smooth and sweet - amazing straight and I also enjoyed with a tiny squeeze of lime and ice
Neskutečně hladký a jemný rum. Dubový sud se snoubí s lahodnou vůní vanilky, banánů a tabáku. Není zbytečně sladký ale i přesto velmi jemný.
Mark: 7+/10: Taste is little exotic, little fruity and a touch sweet with medium lenght in aftertaste with medium light oak. Overall pleasant but not great.
This is an excellent non-sweet rum with rich aromas suitable for whisky drinkers. The beginning of the nose offers a hint of cinnamon spice, reminds me of the Johnny Walker blue label. Easily one of my favorites.
This is a favourite. For someone with a fairly unsophisticated palate, this was one of the first rums where I really felt like I was drinking something superior to everything else on the shelf.
Can be mixed, but I wouldn't bother. Rum, ice, success.
Mount Gay is a quality product to the world of rum. Mount Gay serves a great bridge point to all drinkers. It is not sweet enough to scare away those who prefer earthy/dry spirits (scotch drinkers). It also is not
This is Sooo good
Amazing smell, sweet and oaky.
The thast is tropicaly sweet and full of molasess.
The finish is the best, you get a mouth wash of butter-cookies.
I'm having a lot of fun with this bottle.
