This is the real thing! For this price you get a very nice, smooth, sugareless premium crafted rum. The leaving is great and long, go for it !

A spicy caramel start with easy finish. Nothing offensive about this one. Good rum to share with friends or a coworker you don’t fully trust yet

An excellent rum. Tastes of caramel with a bit of spice. Smooth finish. Highly recommend

I developed a love for Rum when I lived for 10 years in the US Virgin Islands. But Rum is generally ignored by most of my friends, except as a mixer in drinks with little umbrellas in them. Well, I have opened a few eyes with Mt. Gay XO. The subtle flavor from the bourbon barrels makes this Rum unique. Smooth, dry, with a sweet nose. By the way, I paid 170 NIS, which beats the Partner Price of 176.50 NIS.

Zrání v sudech po whisky, bourbon a cognac je znát, nedoslazovaný
- vůně vanilka, dřevo, jemné koření
- chuť jemná lehké dřevo, karamel, ke konci se ozve hořká čokoláda
Závěr delší, kopíruje chuť

Gold/brown color with a sweet brownsugarlike taste. Alcoholburn at first but soon after the sweetness takes over. A bit of pinneapple in there.

I’ve found that many rums once they get to this price point let me down. Most are syrupy sweet crap. Mount Gay XO is worth the money. It’s taste so finished and refined. It’s a bottle that I keep going back to.

This is a very good rum. I have a problem where I use most rums under $100 as a mixer. Just a dash of mix but it id because of the burn. For a similar proce you can grab the Zafra 21 which in my opinion is the best value for rum out there.
