Mount Gay Extra Old Reviews

It wasn’t broken, why fix it?

A previous incarnation of XO reserve cask contained 12 to 15 year old rums and was pure, unadulterated nectar.
The latest version (apparently an exercise in rebranding) contains 5 to 17 year old rums, but this latest range of ages has resulted in a course, biting finish. Mount Gay, what on earth have you done?

Hmmm...something has changed

Something's changed. Cant confirm what the guy below me is saying but I have always paid around 40 for it...with that said there sure is a drop in mount gay xo since my last bottle ( the one with mount gay extra old written in gold at the bottom of a black label with the barbados map outlined) this triple cask which is what is at my local total wines for just over $45 now has replaced the XO bottle shown on the site and while sweeter, in my opinion is just hiding some rough edges...i did not enjoy this new one straight, although mixed with a splash of gingerale and lime it was actually quite good...not 45 dollars good mind you. Better value elsewhere.

Extra old keeps getting younger...

When I first tried MGXO back in 2008 it was " a blend of rums aged from 12 to 15 years" and was one of the best rums I ever sampled...and it was a steal...generally under 30 USD for a 750ml . Over the years, sometime maybe around 2012 they changed not only the label, but also the age...moved from 8 to 15....this last version says 7 to 15.... and now for 2020 they say aged 5 to 17.... and the proce is nearly double. Having sampled the new 2020 version called mgxo triple cask...the difference in quality is very evident... there is much more alcohol bite and it is much more rough than even the last version. Younger and younger rums and higher and higher prices have turned a once sublime rum into an expensive imposter. Sorry Mount Gay buy you've sold out!

Smooth and full flavoured. Light sweetness. Will make you smile, not fight.

Have recently converted from the molasses styles to the cleaner Barbadian styles. This is a very well priced and lovely drink. Agree with previous comments, please don't mix this. It's way too good and needs nothing.

Great stuff

Anybody who drinks this with cola, should not be allowed to drink decent rum.
You guys can stick with Bacardi blanco

The best

I really don't care for any of the other rums produced by Mt Gay, but Extra Old is, to me, the best rum I have ever tasted. It is RUM, nothing more, nothing less. This is the benchmark. Sip it neat, because mixing this with anything would just be criminal.
