The first "Dry" finish on a rum that I have found. a Solid rum that is very smooth and nice for sipping. Nothing spectacular but definitely different in a nice way from the rums that I have tried.

Very well balanced rum, pot still and column still blend without sugar or color added.
Smells wonderful similar to other aged unadulterated rums from Barbados, its a combination of bourbon whiskey and cognac barrel-aged rums. I would say the cognac is predominant love, a bit alcoholic at first but once you let it sit opens up great, the finish is smooth and long.
All in all a wonderful rum.

When I drink this rum I feel like I am drinking something very good in the classic sense. The lack of added sugar gives it a natural sweetness and a very pleasant rich aroma. For me, as in many other reviews, it is a benchmark for other rums. It presents a high level. Any rum that is better than this certainly deserves attention.

MG has always been one of my favorites and the XO is one of the best they offer.

I’m not a huge fan of Mount Gay but the XO is a great sipping rum for those looking for a smooth and reasonably priced XO.

It has been while so I don't have a pic, but I did research here and pick this one after Brugal 1888, which was lovely rum as well, this was also dry but smooth and sweet on tongue. Well balanced and last long. If you like dry but smooth rum this is good choice.

Very, very drinkable especially if you are on a budget. Started drinking this in Barbados at the Mount Gay distillery tasting party. Love it on the rocks with a drop or 2 of lime.

Very nice barrel-taste rum with a very long-lasting aftertaste. You feel a slight burn but one that is not overpowering or annoying. Slightly better than Doorly's 12. Could give it a 9 and may still change my mind. A benchmark in its category and a go to for sure.
