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.

One of the better cheap rums. Wouldn't buy this one again but it is good enough to make me want to try one of the higher end Mount Gay rums.

Golden colour. Vanilla aroma with caramel and some fruitiness, with a prominent alcoholic note. More clearly alcoholic in mouth, in an unbalanced way. The flavours are predominantly oak and banana, with some biscuit-like hints. It starts off quite harsh in terms of the alcohol bite, but after a bit it is not that bad after all. I can imagine it being better when mixed, perhaps. Relatively dry, mild to medium body, borderline sipping rum.

A few flavours of caramel and vanilla but overshadowed by the alcohol taste. Better to be mixed.

Can’t name a better rum to sip on while getting back to basics with a couple homies.

Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Barbados
Aroma: Vůně je suchá, nevýrazná, s vanilkou a hřebíčkem. Lihová, nevyzrálá, snad ještě zaznamenávám citrusy. (72 b)
Chuť: Hm...tak blbě nejen voní, ale i chutná. Citrusy, nakyslost, suchost, dřevnatost a seno. (72 b)
Body: 72/100
Shrnutí: Ochutnáno při posezení s kamarádem v českolipském Baru/Kavárně Kocour. Je to takové nijaké, dřevité, hodně slabý zážitek, ale rum to asi připomíná. To v Božkově umějí z náhražek udělat lepší pití.

Great simple gold Barbados rum, with no sugar or additives. Probably one of the best choices for someone starting his rum journey, and a huge step up from the more commonly found alternatives (bacardi/ cptn morgan).

I don't prefer to drink this one straight, but it works great in cocktails. It has a spiciness to it that comes out in a dark and stormy that I enjoy. Inexpensive as well at $18 a bottle by me.

Nice on its own as not too fiery good as a mixer too. All round tasty with hint of vanilla.

Kind of tastes like captain Morgan without the added spices/vanilla. There are many better rums for a similar or lower price out there: Plantation Barbados 5, Angostura 7, etc.

Great Barbados Rum. Not overly sweet, a little dry.

A fairly nice rum thats good bang for your buck. I find it goes nice with just a simple mixer like coke, or adds a little extra when added to a n8ce cocktail. Not my favourite rum, but certainly one of my regular buys.
