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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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