Mount Gay XO Rum
A full bodied rum from Barbados, very enjoyable. This was awarded its 5th Gran Gold award at the Monde Selection in Brussels, as well as a trophy at the 2001 International Spirits Challenge in London.
This dry rum has a soft amber color and an enticingly warm caramel fragrance. On the tongue, it has a soft feel, with crème brûlée and banana flavors, braced up with lightly tannic black-tea notes and a baking spice finish. While a versatile choice for all manner of cocktails, the spice profile seems a natural for enlivening warm winter toddies.
