Mount Gay, XO Pot Still

RRP £115

Reputedly the world’s oldest commercial rum distillery (it has deeds dating from 1703), Mount Gay is the benchmark for Bajan rum. Most of its rums are a blend of heavy pot still and lighter column still rums, but this is 100% pot still, giving it real staying power. Complex but refined with mature notes of membrillo, marzipan and fine, dry spices. Would be good with a cigar.
