Mount Gay, XO Triple-Cask Blend

RRP £54

Mount Gay is one of the bigger names in the world of global rum, unusual in carrying the name of the place where the spirit is distilled. The distillery itself is one of the oldest in the world, with records dating back to 1703. This expression combines pot and column still rums matured in American whiskey, bourbon and Cognac casks, which give toffee, hazelnut and leather notes on the nose, with a soft palate of milk chocolate, vanilla and fudge, crème caramel and griddled pineapple on the finish.
