Nice rum, distinct vanilla and caramel taste. Slightly bitter if I remember well. There is always something I can't recognize that can't me love this rum.

Love it neat or on ice. Might become my house rum.

At the edge of being a sipping rum or not as it is dry and not that sweet (note I prefer non-sweet rums, so if sweet is your thing deduct 1 from my score) but well rounded, very down the middle in a good way

Hay rones más caros pero posiblemente no mucho mejores. De aroma excepcional y de gusto delicado donde el alcohol y azúcar están combinados en su justa medida de forma excepcional sin alterar su sabor a frutado y final fascinante.

Power full blend with a long finish. Not a sweet rum

A very good rum especially if you like whisky, I made a mistake of trying it when I was a novice and was too overpowering. Good bajan though

Když jsem ho pil poprvé, měl jsem skoro dojem že piju bourbon. Použité sudy jsou v něm hodně znát, jejich až příliš výrazná chuť trochu přebíjí jinak vyváženou chuť. Kdo má rád whisky nebo bourbon, tomu bude chutnat. Já ho musím zkusit znovu.

What a quality rum for only €49 here! Really smooth and a tad sweet, highly recommended.

I'm glad I decided to buy Mount Gay XO - less sweet than what I've tasted so far, mild flavour in the mouth, slightly heavier when swallowed. Rum at its best.

Yeap! It's not sweet so it's the kind of Rum I like.

First time was a shock, not sweet subtle rum, this is full dodged manly cowboy rum. Takes a bit getting used to compared to Appleton or regular Mt Gay. I appreciate the depth and full bodied experience. Not for everyone but works for me.
