XO: Peat Smoke Expression

A Bridge Between Barbados and Islay

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