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.

This is a nice rum for mixed drinks. Adds its own flavour to drinks. Not really good enough to drink on its own, but still has a great taste.

Better than Bacardi or the captain but has nothing special

Nose: Not much
Feel: Syrupy. Little burn. Light
Taste: Sugar, Honey
Presentation: They have changed the bottle (in Canada at least) to the much nicer oval bottle you can see on the other products here on RR.

I could sit this, but prefer the MG:XO (or 1703) too much if I want to sip Bajan rum. This ends up in the mixed drinks which I don't want to waste anything nicer, but still want a solid rum.

Very clean taste, if a little forgettable.

Nice rum if you fancy something dependable, but it is not going to rock your world

This is my go to rum and coke. Not a sipper.

If I see this at the bar I'll take it over the regular Captain Morgan or Bacardi Gold that seems to be the other options in most UK bars.

A go-to rum when at a bar with a small selection. A big step up from the majority of the popular rums that are usually found in the same venues at a similar price.

A very forgettable golden mixing rum. Better can be found at a lesser price
