Recommendable to most
A very nice rum and with the $$. I would drink this daily if I could find it all the time. Nice froth with soda and well-balanced on the rocks. Can't go wrong.
First tried it at a Mount Gay launch party. Decent for sipping and compliments cola well(blasphemy). Smooth with pleasant aftertaste. A product of fine aging yielding a complex blend of flavor.
It is hard to find a bar that carries really good sipping rums, this one of them if you can find it on the back bar. A must try.
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.
"Mount Gay Extra Old rum review by The Ultimate Rum Guide"
"The nose is very fruity. Raisin, prunes and currants with a little banana and some tropical fruits a little pineapple perhaps."
