Press Reviews

The distillery makes some of the best rum in the world. I visited, and I tasted, and I loved it, but you do not have to travel to the islands to experience the best of what Mount Gay has to offer.

The XO Reserve Cask is something I’ve always heard and read good things about, even before I took a deep dive into rum. I can now see why. Amazing. easy to drink, yet has good texture and complexity despite the 43% ABV. $55 for quality and unsweetened rum like this is a steal for me.
