Mount Gay master blender Allen Smith created the smoky iteration, which is a blend of column and pot still rums that have been matured for eight to 15 years in American oak barrels.

Bottled at 57% abv, Mount Gay XO The Peat Smoke Expression is said to have aromas of stewed fruit, caramel, chocolate, Bourbon vanilla and smoke, with a “velvety texture” on the palate.

Only 6,120 bottles have been created, with 1,200 allocated for sale in the US at an RRP of US$250.

Last year, Mount Gay expanded its portfolio with the launch of Mount Gay 1703 Master Select, made with a blend of copper column and copper pot rums aged between 10 and 30 years.
