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.

(cheap enough to not feel bad mixing it...)

Un rhum d'une grande légèreté, au nez agréable bien que légèrement piquant. En bouche, ses racines sont très présentes et l'on ressent bien tout le barbarisme des fûts américains. Bien que l'alcohol soit évident, il n'est pas fatal pour les papilles et tient plus de la chaleur virile que de la brûlure amère. Le Mount Gay XO n'est pas d'une grande douceur mais sait séduire par son nez attractif et sa finale d'une remarquable finesse.

A smooth and easy to drink rum. Leaves you warm without a burn.

For being the oldest rum distillery still standing, wow do they know how to make a great rum. Buttery, spicy and semi-dry blending into smooth again, this is hands down my favorite "3-fold" rum... Spice, butter, sweet.

Best Mount Gay I've had straight.

Solid quality product from a historic distillery. No too harsh

My go-to for sipping. For the price I'd venture off and try others in the price range.

Tried it this afternoon. I expected more syrupy from an old rum. It's a little antiseptic under the nose, and a little harsh in the throat, but there's a nice short textured finish. I wouldn't rank it up there, because I didn't experience a strong personality, but it comes in classy glass bottle nips. So if you're flying or in a hotel room, go for this one!

Excellent sipper, nice smoky flavor with the right amount of vanilla/banana sweetness. Also very smooth. One complaint though is pricing. In the US, it is just too expensive for its quality. Caribbean retail price is fairer, but the real place to buy this is at duty free in the Caribbean. Here you can get it at $25 or thereabouts which is a steal.
