Mount Gay Eclipse rum

Mount Gay Eclipse

Barbados | Gold

Mount Gay Eclipse rum is produced from molasses that is double distilled and aged up to 2 years in white Kentucky oak ex bourbon barrels.

Mount Gay is the oldest existing rum brand in the world, with it's oldest surviving deed being from 1703. The company developed the use of traditional double copper pot stills, a process that has been in continuous use by Mount Gay ever since its founding. The company's namesake Sir John Gay Alleyne was a good friend of John Sober who purchased the then Mount Gilboa distilleries in 1747.

Tasty, but not quite great

Disappointing. Can't drink it neat, it's a push to use for mixing, likely to end up in the drain tbh, won't ever buy again, but willing to try their higher end bottles

Ebben az árkategóriàban van jobb választás, pl: Santiago de Cuba anejo.

Definitely not a sipping rum. Can add some depth and flavor to a mixed drink.

Easy to find and a good price for me. Great for drinks especially tiki.

Surprisingly light on the nose, I had a hard time picking up much of anything. Some harshness on the pallat with a light vanilla after taste and some burn.

Eclipse is one of the main reasons I love rum as much as I do. It’s certainly the reason I know that I like gold rum the best. I would highly recommend this rum to anybody wanting to try something more than the typical capt morgans/Bacardi.

This is the rum that got me started. Love mixing with Diet Coke. Great way to introduce rum.

I want to rate this at a 6.5/10. It’s definitely good but lacking a bit. For a sipper it’s not anything I’d drink on a regular basis. As a mixed drink it’s pretty good. If you’re one that likes to taste your rums: the nose is a bit harsh but mellows out to sweet aromas of spice and sweetness. You get notes of spice and oak on the tongue along with a bit of alcohol burn. It’s a solid rum for your budget which definitely makes it more attractive.

I just recently got into rum and this is my favorite for under $20. It makes a fantastic strong rum & Coke that is somewhat vanilla-ish.
