Top reviews for Mount Gay XO:

— One of my favorite rums. Rich complex flavors.

— Exceptionally smooth and balanced blend of aged rums. Superb to drink neat and delightful if mixed in a cocktail where the rum takes center stage.

— Has a strong fragrance. However it goes down very smooth. Great Rum mixed or not. Would buy it again.

Smooth and mildly sweet - some molasses flavor. I taste vanilla and some fruit like apricot. Very good - definitely one to get again

It's a warm summer day, you want something refreshing, you're a rum lover, a little ice, a little lime . . . and Mount Gay . . . a MUST! It's a smooth, delicious rum you don't want to waste in a mixed drink.

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
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.
