Lunched in 1992, Mount Gay Extra Old is blended from pot and column distilled rums aged 8-12 years. In Barbados, the locals refer to this by its nickname of 'Mount Gay Black'. It is common to hear bar calls of 'Black & Coke' alongside an order of 'Bread and Two', a popular, local, fried fish dish.
We have heard unsubstantiated rumours that prune wine and brandy essence are also added to improve this rum's flavour.

Spicy apricot, ripe banana and vanilla with rum and raison ice-cream.
