Mount Gay XO Limited Edition Peat Smoke Expression

,

Mount Gay XO Limited Edition Peat Smoke Expression embodies the meeting of two exceptional lands: the island of Barbados, the birthplace of rum, and the island of Islay, the homeland of peated whisky. To produce this unique batch of only 6,120 bottles, Allen Smith, the former Mount Gay Master Blender, carefully selected and combined column and spot still rums; matured for 8 to 15 years in American oak barrels. The blend was then finished in heated whisky casks from Islay, Scotland, for an additional 6 months, bestowing upon the liquid a complex array of salty and smoky notes. The result is a perfect balance between aromas of ripe banana and toasted nuts of XO, and the salty and smoky notes coming from the peated whisky casks. This expression of XO is like no other before.

Mount Gay XO Limited Edition Peat Smoke Expression is crafted by the oldest rum distillery in the world, Mount Gay Distillery in Barbados – the birth place of rum.

The oldest surviving deed for the company is from 1703, making Mount Gay Rum the world’s oldest commercial rum distillery. Dating back to 1660, Mount Gay is one of the oldest estates in the Caribbean and certainly one of the oldest in Barbados. There is evidence that there was distilling equipment in the region in 1663, so rum has probably been in production at Mt. Gay since. A tattered little deed confirms that rum production on the estate was well underway in 1703.

Mount Gay and its historic landscape was originally owned by John Sober – who inherited a small distillery at the top of Mount Gilboa in the St. Lucy parish of Barbados, far back in 1703. Eventually, the Sober family hired Sir John Gay Alleyne – a fourth generation Barbadian – to usher in a new era for the distillery. His innovations and achievements were so profoundly successful that the Sober family renamed the entire distillery in his honour in 1801. And the world became introduced to a new name with a pedigree of excellence and craftsmanship. Mount Gay.

Inseparable are the natural elements of Barbados and Mount Gay Rum. Since day one, the water, cane and airborne yeast have combined to create Mount Gay rums. The process of refining the cane into sugar, then into fermented molasses is more than tradition, it is their most essential ingredient. It’s why Bajan rum is sought the world over. Adored throughout history by famous figures, such as George Washington. Awarded by connoisseurs and critics. Enjoyed at an island-pace by you and friends.
