RX1046 Very good Pot & Column Still Rum 6,120 bottles Under 250€
“Complex, smoky, fruity, and well-balanced—perfect for whisky lovers.”

Mount Gay's "Master Blender Collection - XO The Peat Smoke Expression" is a masterful blend aged 6mo-15 years in Islay casks, resulting in a smoky yet refined Barbados rum. This cask strength release at 57% ABV presents a nose with smoky, vanilla, leather, tobacco, and citrus aromas. On the palate, you'll enjoy complex flavors of burnt sugar, caramel, tobacco, salt, and distinctive peat. Users highlight the harmonious integration of peat with a warm, slightly peppery finish reminiscent of figs, dates, and a touch of burnt almond. The experiment with Islay casks adds an innovative twist, appealing to both rum and whisky aficionados. Limited to 6120 bottles, it’s a unique addition to any collection, best enjoyed neat or with a few drops of water.

“Surprisingly harmonious! Alcohol could be minimally better integrated but I really did not think that the Islay finish fits in well here, since I'm absolutely no peat fan. Am positively surprised! The typical Barbados character comes nevertheless intense finish still beautiful to the fore. But since I'm not an Islay fan, I still do not have to have the again and can now finally cross it off my list!😅 180€ + is the bottle beyond mMn not worth...”

“"Peatling" this rum was an ingenious idea from Mount Gay and I love it. This is a rum that whisky drinkers will like as well. You may want to add a few drops of water to lessen the burn, but not really needed. The nose is fruity with peat and smoke followed by oak, caramel and vanilla. I just kept on nosing this one. The palate is complex and very well balanced with fruit and spices topped off with caramel, oak and smoke. The peat is here again. The finish is long, very long and warm with spices, orange and a touch of smoke.”

“Am Anfang dominieren noch Karamell und süße Noten an der Nase. Je länger man diesen Rum atmen lässt, desto mehr kommen die Raucharomen durch die Islay-Whisky-Lagerung durch. Nicht überwältigend, aber präsent. Im Mund und Abgang ebenso, allerdings mit weniger Frucht. Raucharomen sind nicht mein Favorit, aber hier ist es ein gelungenes Experiment.”
