Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Mount Gay Silver Rum bottle and label design looks pretty decent, but nothing special. Pure alcohol coming through to the nose and palate. Strong burn at the end, so better to mix it up, or skip altogether.
Sorry to be a downer here, but I could discern no rum taste, only rubbing alcohol smell. I decided not to put it in the coquito and used my buddy's Captain Morgan instead, which worked fine and has actually smells like rum.
If you are looking for a quality rum to compliment mixed drinks this is the one. Leaps above Captain Morgan and Bacardi.
It's better than Bacardi silver...but its just a mixer.
This review is for the newer bottling now called simply "silver" not "Eclipse silver" any longer. There is a lack of boldness which I guess should be expected... at least if it were a Puerto Rico White rum. It is not very interesting on the palate either rather neutral very faint spice, alcohol, bland. A surprising disappointment from mount gay! Its been a while since I had their older "Eclipse silver" I will have to do a comparison to see if the rum has changed and not just the name/bottle, I believe I have a bottle in my collection. Clearly this rum is targeting the mixing crowd even though a bit overbearing on the alcohol. Not what I expected, not terrible either.
