Allen Smith, Mount Gay’s Master Blender worked to capture the perfect balance of elegant rum overtones and mellow, heated whisky undertones to create a one-of-a-kind blend. To produce this batch, he selected and combined column and pot still rums, matured for 8 to 15 years in American oak barrels and then finished in heated whisky casks from Isle of Islay in Scotland for another six months.

This edition is bottled at cask strength at 57 percent alcohol by volume with aromas of ripe banana and toasted nuts of XO and the salty and smoky notes from the heated whisky casks.

Miguel Smith, Mount Gay International Brand Ambassador was in Singapore last year to share this over a cocktail pairing lunch at Skai.

The Mount Gay portfolio in Singapore includes Black Barrel, XO, and Eclipse.
