The proudest rum from the Barbados distiller, this spirit is an opulent blend of mainly double pot-distilled rums aged 8 to 15 years. Its subtle balance exudes a finesse that only comes with time, and it was awarded a Silver medal at the 2014 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

"Mount Gay Extra Old i."s a nice sipping rum and no doubt works well in many cocktails, the rum old fashioned being one of my favourites."

Product Details

The aromas for this Barbados-produced rum strike a perfect balance between ripe banana and toast, followed by vanilla, pastry and warm spice. The palate is rich, oaky and sharp, with a rounded body and a smooth finish. An opulent blend of the finest rums (mainly double pot-distilled) aged eight to fifteen years, it represents the proudest achievement for the distillery, exuding a finesse that can only can with time. In 2011, Wine Enthusiast specifically recommended it for “warm winter toddies.”

    Great.

    Absolutely the best. Great to sip alone or maybe with a splash of "jelly water"-water from a young coconut.
