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.
Recommendable to most
Nose and Palate both have Molasses, Wood, Cinnamon and Toffee
And guess what, you can focus on each element and have the reward of it singularly coming through to reward your senses.
Mr. Smith hit the target on this one, and each encounter delivers sub-MOA accuracy.
I love Barbados rum more than any other, and this takes the crown..... From the cask flavours to the fruits, to the chocolate. The nose is instantly recognisable and just makes me smile
Barbados. 8-15 years in bourbon barrels. This is what I want in a rum. Noticeable but not overpowering sweetness. Bourbon notes are clear - flavors more toffee/caramel than banana/coconut. Looking forward to trying 1703.
If you enjoy Mount Gay, you'll love this rum.
Sweet but without being sickly. Normally with good rums I'd say don't mix, but for this a Dark'N'Stormy is the way to go.

"The nose is very fruity. Raisin, prunes and currants with a little banana and some tropical fruits a little pineapple perhaps."
