XO The Peat Smoke Expression embodies the meeting of two exceptional lands: the island of Barbados, the birthplace of rum, and the island of Islay in Scotland, 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.

It takes every drop of their heritage - past and present - to make Mount Gay Rum. From the founding in 1703, to the legendary leadership of Sir John Gay Alleyne. To the digging of their first and only well. To the single-strand fields of cane they’re planting at the plantation today. It’s all part of Mount Gay Rum. A story you can taste in every bottle. And a heralded rum heritage.
Mount Gay Rum and their 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 Allende - 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 his honour. 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 Mount Gay's most essential ingredient.
