Not just another Mount Gay edition.
 
The story of Mount Gay Rum begins in the year 1703, on the Caribbean island of Barbados, when John Sober (seriously?!) inherited a distillery, and invited Sir John Gay to help manage it. Sir John Gay jumped at the opportunity to give the Barbadians something special. He refined the production process and began producing noticeably superior product that has survived to this day. Mount Gay is the oldest Rum brand in the World. A distillery with a 300-year tradition and Master Distiller Allen Smith at its helm. How can this expression go wrong? You’re right it cannot... and it didn’t
 
MGXO is a fantastic blend consisting of a wide range of sassy Rums from 7 to 15 years of age, all of which were nursed in American White Oak ex-Kentucky Bourbon barrels. MGXO’s excellence was awarded many a time (e.g. Trophy at the 2001 International Spirits Challenge in London), but even though it is very highly regarded among Rum-inados, it’s still often overlooked by noobs who look for “premium” on the label... don’t be that guy. To covet or not to covet? Hmm… not really a tough nut to crack, is it?

Very nice rum. Tasty.

Good mixer
Michael
This is a very complex rum. The mineral quality of the molasses definitely comes through, though the banana is a bit estery, not unlike the aroma of those penny candy store "balloon in a tube" novelties. If it weren't for the over-esteriness, I'd rate this quite high.
Jonathan
That barrel aging worked out really well. There is a smoky undertone to the subtle flavors that linger on this richly bodied rum. I would not hesitate to purchase this.
Thomas
Great full flavor
