Default Cockspur12/Mount Gay XO

Thanks to MOR Forum member Michael, I recently received a much anticipated bottle of "Cockspur 12". I sat down tonight to give it some time. After the initial sip I had to check I had not poured MGXO by mistake, even though I have the MGXO on speed pour, as it is one of my favourite sippers.
They are surprisingly similar, lots of oak and spice. In the recent tasting in Miami I missed MGXO in the premium rum section. It was the last rum tasted, so I put it down to palate fatique. Maybe it wasn't the rum who I thought it was!! Or maybe the C12 is a better rum. Whatever, two great sippers and a good reason to go back to Barbados to investigate more.
