Product description

By passing down knowledge and expertise over hundreds of years, Mount Gay has perfected the art of rum making. Mount Gay XO is a small-batch blend of carefully selected mature rums distilled in traditional copper pot and column stills. This round and complex rum is matured between 5 to 17 years in American whiskey, bourbon and cognac casks. XO has been called the rum by which all other rums are measured.

    My absolute favorite rum. Very smooth, and it’s great to drink either straight or mixed with just a touch of coke. But please don’t overwhelm the flavor with something else. This is a top notch rum!!!


Aged rum is older rums that have matured and lost a bit of the original liquid from evaporation, but have a more complex character than unaged rum. That amount of liquid that evaporates during aging is affectionately called the 'angels share'.
The best way to drink anything is the way that you like it. If you're looking for a suggestion - try it the same way you would whisky. Often rum is drank with a bit of water in it, or an ice cube or two. This gives rum the best sipping experience.
This depends. Often, rum is required to age for at least one year. However, rums are aged for differing years which attributes to changes in color and flavor. White rum is aged for the least amount of time, where dark rum is aged for some time.
Rum is aged in oak casks - commonly bourbon casks, but sometimes wooden casks or stainless steel tanks. Each distiller is different - so its always a good idea to read how they age their rum for a full understanding of the product.
