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.

Mount Gay Eclipse is a wonderful tasting rum - with great flavor from the oak barrels. Mount Gay is one the oldest rum distillery's and they have maintained the delicious flavor. Eclipse is a must in every bar

I first found this rum in Barbados in 1987. I was very good but I could not get in in Pennsylvania until several years later. The aroma is great and it is good on the rocks or mixed. This is my go to rum and one of my favorites

One of my go-to runs for a Cuba Libre! Very smooth, good price. Just an all around solid rum. I wouldn’t recommend Eclipse for a straight rum but their XO and Select is quite good for straight or on the rocks. I’ve been to the Mount Gay distillery in Barbados, awesome place. Very rustic and still a truly handmade rum! 10/10 recommended for mixed drinks, 6.5/10 for straight/rocks

An absolutely delicious blend of spices. Not too sweet. An absolute 10 with coke. A step or two behind when neat or on the rocks. One of the best.

Strangely inexpensive yet I can still remember having been mind-blown by this rum.
