Mount Gay Extra Old (often written "OX") is a blend of rums aged between 8 and 15 years in American bourbon barrels.
Mount Gay Distilleries is the oldest operating distillery in the Americas - producing rum in Barbados since 1703. It's original name was Mount Gilboa, and in 1801 renamed Mount Gay after the distillery's manager Sir John Gay Alleyne.
by far the worst rum i have tasted not worth the money i would be annoyed paying £10 for this avoid at all cost
This is a nice balanced smooth and sweet rum. For all the people, regardless of your sexual preference.
Blend of pot still and column still from rum aged between 8 years to 15 years.
Might sound crazy but banana peanut butter toast with strawberry jam it is! Moist wet wood and slight earthy towards the end.
Fruity on palate: ripe plums and banana compote.
Light touch of smokiness and burned wood.
Bitterness which balance up with the sweet fruity aroma.
Dry charred wood with tannic. Ripe guava and sour grapes. Opposite of what gotten on the nose.
It lingers well after sipping and makes you wanna continue with hesitating.
Full of flover. "1703 Old Cask" is better than this. However, this rum is good value for money.
If you drank this rum next to any other you wouldn’t notice any difference.
Interesting nose of oak with a faint hint of toasted pineapple and candied orange.
Quite dry with some fruity sweetness that seems to derive from.distillation and not from added sugar, very correct — for better or worse. Not a very long aftertaste. It is a bit like drinking a medium range, mainstream XO cognac: pleasant, good craftsmanship but nothing I will remember. But absolutely a worthy candidate if you want to stock a good XO rum at home. I much prefer this style to those with added sugar.
Had this in a bar one night before I got into drinking sprits neat. Served on the rocks with a twist of lime and a sugar rimmed glass, prefer it neat but was a nice change.
I personally don't think this is an upper level rum expression, but it's on the border. I feel like this would be something you give a person to help them ease into the world of aged rum. There are other, better rums for approx. The same price.
Spitzen Rum zum absolut fairen Preis.
Feine natürliche Süße und etwas Fruchtigkeit. Toller Barbados Rum.
I found it rough to drink, but ok just nothing special about it.
honey, vanilla spice and oak flavor, pretty smooth. this honestly goes down way too easy neat.
Did a Masterclass with Mount Gay ambassador, Mr Chester Browne, who was really fabulous and a great man. Had this one in the tasting, which was really good and can't wait to buy myself a bottle, it's a must have, smells great, Christmas cake, raisins, prunes, vanilla... And in the mouth is just as awesome, it doesn't let you down (like the black barrel did imho). No added sugar, if you have doubts ;) it is just a very very good rum. I would give it a 9 but I've tasted also the 1703.
Dry and oaky, with a long finish and some kick - rock solid sipper
Surely you Jest 7.8 for this rum? This should be rated much higher closer to 9, this is a well balanced rum and from what I have seen on here, the preference is on the sweeter rums, this rum has a good nose, good legs, it evaporates on the tongue, pretty smooth. It has been done an injustice here.
Had it for the first time last weekend. It is awesome. Very smooth and not overly sweet
Smooth rum with a little warmth after taste. a good rum
Awesome!!! One of the best Rums in the world.🇧🇧🇧🇧🇧🇧
This is an OK rum, not bad nor great. I prefer sweet rums and Mount Gay XO is probably more appreciated by those of you that wants a little more dry type.
For its price, MGXO is just a steal. Great robust resin like taste, always prepared to be poured into a glass. No strong alcohol odour or aftertaste. Always have at least one bottle in your collection.
Rigtig fin rom, som er god og tør. Den mangler lidt på eftersmagen, men den er rigtig god
Rigtig fin rom, lidt skarpere i smagen end mange af de helt søde. Smagen holder desværre ikke helt længe nok til at komme længere op på skalaen
Not my favorite but it’s a nice sipper if you’re looking for a rum without much (any?) added sweetness. Needs a little time in the glass to mellow but pretty enjoyable thereafter.
Got a. Outlet of this for XMAS .....never tried it before ...as I am an Appleton fan ...well, shut the front door ..this is REMARKABLE rum ...slowly as it enters your mouth to the finish ..there is an euphoria of warmth from this rum ...goes GREAT in front of the fire on the rocks !!
