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.

Good mixer rum, tasty. The taste is pure. A true Barbados rum.

Lighter amber hues and mild spice on the nose. It has a smooth character without being too intrusive on any one flavour or spice. Good mixing choice but can so nicely neat as well.

Decent enough. Bit too harsh as a sipper but a good mixer and really good price.

My middle-tier rum of choice. While it's certainly not one of the best rums out of there, it's definitely not nearly the worst either. Extremely aromatic, but if you're used to higher-class stuff you'll be let down when you drink it.

It burns a lot but has a good taste and is sippable. Might be better with an ice cube

A friend had a bottle of this and being a rum drinker I had to try it on the rocks, my normal drink. I did like the taste, but felt it was kind of harsh going down and afterward. I'd definitely drink it if it was the only option, but there are better options in this price range. Specifically Cruzan gold.

Better than a lot by it self but locally it can be had in large plastic bottles which makes it top notch for boat drinks!

A very good rum at the price level. A little harsh on its own, however when mixed it is smooth but still interesting. Think banana bread. a little sweetness but not too sweet. Easy to drink and as entry level Mount Gay it sets a standard.

There’s nothing wrong with this rum but there is nothing to write home about or get excited. It’s just the same old standard cheap gold rum.
Maybe Better for à mixer
