Mount Gay has unveiled a new rum expression: Mount Gay XO Peat Smoke.
This release is the first in the brand’s Master Blender Collection, which are selected by Mount Gay Master Blender Allen Smith.
The rum for Mount Gay XO Peat Smoke is a blend of column and pot still rums. It aged for 8-15 years in American Oak Barrels, then matured for an additional six months in ex-Islay peated whisky casks. The result is a smooth, sweet rum balanced with notes of medium smoke.
Mount Gay XO Peat Smoke, 57% ABV, is a limited-edition rum with only 1,200 available in the U.S.
The suggested retail price is $250 per 750-ml. bottle.
