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

This is a clean looking and tasting rum. Works well for me either with Coke or with ginger beer. Don't have to think too hard.

A lot of bars carry Mount Gay so I find myself drinking it in Cuba Libre's when I am not in the mood for a heavier spiced rum.

For me this is a mixer, and one of my top Cuba Libra rums. I’ve sipped it on ice in a pinch, and with club soda and lime too. With so few rums at most bars I’m happy if they have this.

Not bad, a little bit of a sharp nose, and alcohol after taste, but a good entry level/cheaper Rum.

Sharp taste reminiscent of Jamaican rum. Not my taste, as not sweet enough with off flavour.

Not overly spicy, but does have an alcohol burn. In the price range this is in, 15-20 dollar rum, it has a ton of competition. It doesn’t have as much flavor as others in this range, Sailor Jerry comes to kind as a more flavorful rum, but this one has less burn. I’d say it’s legs are hairy, it sticks to the glass like a higher priced rum, but it’s less refined. I’ll try it again but in coke to see how it holds up. Has an allspice maple flavor but not overly sweet. If this was aged longer it would really be a great rum, but I imagine that’s what it’s older brother is.

Bardzo lubię rumy z Barbados. Niestety ten mnie zawiodl. Kompletnie nie mój smak. Ma coś co mnie odrzuca. Nawet w koktajlu jest ciezki.

I prefer the Black Barrel from Mount Gay. This one is not bad, but not packed with flavor like the others. Good enough for a nice mixed drink, but not one to sip on.
