Der Rum ist sehr harmonisch und vielschichtig. Gutes PLV

Had just a sample of it, but I will definitely not hesitate for more if I get an opportunity again.

This is definitely a Bajan style rum. Heavy and yet well balanced. This release is better than the one from 2011.

Easy Sipping aus Barbados Zu dünn. Könnte deutlich mehr Alkohol vertragen.

Un rum très rond et très gourmand. Ça manque un peu de caractère et de complexité, c'est sûr, mais ça reste un très beau produit. Entre le flan et la crème brûlée.

Un rapport qualité prix un peu élevé cela dit pour un rhum sucré il se débrouille plutôt bien

Très boisé et plutôt sec

It’s a super solid Barbadian rum. Just about mixable without feeling bad but stands up superbly as a 86 proof sipper. Lovely nose, balanced mouth feel and enough complexity to keep it interesting. Lacks the syrupy complexity of the Foursquare ECS series but when in the mood for something less complex and easier to drink it’s one of my go to rums (and one of the best Rum Old Fashioned base’s there is in my view)

Un bon rhum pour démarrer. De qualité industrielle mais accessible et de bon niveau. Très agréable avec un dessert. Je trouve la note d’oliver assez sévère. A 69 mais il y a mieux c est vrai. Après une deuxième voir une troisième dégustation je modifie la note à 80 car je trouve que cette note est underrated

Absoluter Basic Rum. Kein Zucker und das schmeckt man auch. Wirklich ein ehrlicher Rum. Geruch etwas fruchtiger und süßer als der Geschmack, welcher von holzigen und würzigen Aromen dominiert wird. Es folgt ein angenehmer Abgang. Der Mount Gay XO zeigt, wie ein ausgewogener ungezuckerter Rum ohne viel Schnick-Schnack schmecken kann. Im Preissegment um die 40€ für mich einer der besten Rums. Hoffe die neue Master Blenderin der Mount Gay Destilleries hält mit ihrem neuen XO, dem Triple Cask, mindestens die Qualität ihrer Vorgänger.

Wood and spices. Sweetness in both fruit and caramel tones. Sweetness hits first and then it becomes very dry.

Der rumigste der Mountgay, kantiger und alkoholischer, süßer im Abgang.
