Thanks for sharing. That's a nice bottle. I understand from Mount Gay that they're rolling out a new marketing campaign in April. There may be some more updates coming.

Looks very distinguished, but I don't see anything wrong with the current bottle. Is this just a facelift or is the rum going to be changing? Is it time to stock up on another good rum before it's ruined? I hate to be negative, but we've seen this happen all too often recently.

I like to see that Rum Companies are keeping up with updating their packaging and launching new ad campaigns. Marketing is very important.

I like to the new bottle (nothing wrong with the old bottle but...).

Another brand in the thick bottomed bottle style bandwagon.

I've been told by Mount Gay representatives that they are mounting a campaign in April to reposition their products. I expect to see some changes and some new ideas expressed at the upcoming Rum Renaissance festival in Miami in May.

Nice looking bottle. No matter to me, as long as the rum inside maintains it's quality, and I don't have to pay an increase for a new bottle style.

I saw a bottle on eBay recently and thought it must have been a vintage bottle I had never seen before. I agree though, I hope they don't change the contents. Maybe with this new campaign we might get some new rums that are not flavoured???

I'm with Hank. This is a rum that is a staple in my collection. I sure hope they don't mess with the contents. The low $30 (ish) price makes Mt Gay XO a value proposition for me as well. Why mess with that?
