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
This is an OK rum, not bad nor great. I prefer sweet rums and Mount Gay XO is probably more appreciated by those of you that wants a little more dry type.
For its price MGXO is just a steal. Great robust resin like taste, sense of wood, wood soil, wood berries, wood honey, caramel. No strong alcohol odour or alcohol aftertaste. Always have at least one bottle in your collection.
Rigtig fin rom, lidt skarpere i smagen end mange af de helt søde. Smagen holder desværre ikke helt længe nok til at komme længere op på skalaen
Not my favorite but it’s a nice sipper if you’re looking for a rum without much (any?) added sweetness. Needs a little time in the glass to mellow but pretty enjoyable thereafter.
Got a. Outlet of this for XMAS .....never tried it before ...as I am an Appleton fan ...well, shut the front door ..this is REMARKABLE rum ...slowly as it enters your mouth to the finish ..there is an euphoria of warmth from this rum ...goes GREAT in front of the fire on the rocks !!
