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.

Not great on its own, but suitable for mixing with Coke.

Mellow with good, but rather light and fleeting, flavours.

Mount gay rum Eclipse je skvelý rum, ktorý sa hodí do miešaných nápojov. Samostatne je piteľný avšak len v obmedzenom objeme.

Fľaša: dizajn fľaše je typický pre barové pulty. Hrubé oblé sklo s typickými znakmi producenta. Fľaša je ozvláštnená embosovaným logom producenta na etikete a popisom produktu na skle fľaše.

Vôňa: vo vôni cítiť štipku vanilky ale aj kože, vône prebíja alkoholová aróma.

Chuť: ostrosť alkoholu trocha prebíja ostatné vône.

Farba: zlatistá

Záver: ide o rum, určený hlavne pre miešané nápoje, mne chutil v dark & stormy a cuba libre. Odporúčam.

Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Mount Gay 1703 Eclipse Rum bottle and label design looks pretty decent, but nothing special. Wood, dryness and vanilla coming through to the nose and palate. Quite a harsh burn at the end, so better to mix it up with your favorite soda. Whisky lovers add 2 points.

Good everyday rum to keep in the bar but a little to harsh as a sipper (especially with so many other options available). Enjoy mixed...

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

Nose - Vanilla, banana, light
Taste - Similar to nose, burn is light

In the category of Bajan rums, there are better options for the same or less cost.
You can get something more aged and has oaky notes.
If your options are limited, this will do.

Lite vanilj i doften mild och lättdrucken i värmen.

Tasty, light with a sharp aftertaste
Clearly part of the Mount Gay family - the Eclipse is a solid everyday rum choice.

Harsher then the Eclipse Silver and less flavourful then the XO it’s a solid choice for those that like rum

Bought this thinking it was top shelf. It’s not bad, it has a decent aroma with buttery notes, but you can smell the alcohol and taste it. It’s just too harsh for me at 47%. It is a good standard rum if you can enjoy the alcohol or maybe mixed.
