This is must have rum. Pure marriage between spirit and wood. So easy, so smooth, so Barbados.

Cuban rum was my favorite rum until I drank this. The bottle was empty in no time. Highly recommended!

I don't get easily surprised...but this one did it. If I can put my reaction into one word it would be, smooth.

Despite the "XO" rating there's not much oak to this one. It's there...but its not as strong as you'd expect.

This is a rum that deserves to be from Barbados! It's not cheap but you'll understand the price tag when you enjoy the quality and taste. This is a rum drinker's rum.

What a great Rum Mount Gay XO is. Bought a bottle without any previous experience with mount gay Rum. Sipped with a single cube to perfection.

Medium color - VERY long on the palate - not too sweet, definite rum flavor unlike some rums that taste more like vanilla extract, perfume or molasses. This is the real deal in sipping rum.

molasses. dry.
i smell some dark fruits. pepper, ginger, barbados!
i taste fruit and tons of spice. pepper. ginger. some hints of vanilla and chocolate.
10/10 - drop 5 from this score if you love sweet rum.
full bodied powerhouse for a very really fair price. if one god exists and would ask me: take three rums with you to heaven, i think, one of them would be this!

A last minute purchase with not much background on this rum. What an exciting and raw taste that took me by complete surprise. This has easily become one of my favourites.

This Rum is just as Rum should be. Not too sweet, lots of aromas, long lasting. For 30€ the best I got so far.

Wow, this is just a perfect rum. It's impossibly smooth, naturally sweet, full of molasses and toffee, some oak, and a whole lot of perfection. Compare this miraculous rum with Plantation XO (also from Barbados), which has more added sugar than children's juice boxes. You can spend much more for rums which are as good as - but not better - than this one. Straight up, right?
