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.

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

Rhum aux beaux reflets dorés, a l'arôme discret et léger en bouche. Plutôt agréable. Peu de longueur en bouche.

A great deal! Truly versatile. Recommended as an everyday (within reason) drinker and perfect entry level rum.

Bought in supermarket, would buy again but wouldn't actively look for it. Smooth enough for a and didn't have any sharp aftertaste.

This will due in a pinch for on the rocks imbibing. Not something i would let my friends drink unless as a mixer with juice or cola.

This is an ok rum. Not great for sipping, but can be put to use in a tiki drink or two.

For a true, West Indian rum punch: lime, raw sugar, nutmeg and proprietary additions. This is meant only with affection, and is not a slight at all.

Not a sipper by any stretch, but this is the only rum I want for my homemade concoction.

This might not be my first choice for a sipping rum, yet it's perfectly fine on the rocks. It works well in a variety of cocktails too. There's vanilla, banana, a bit of oak, and a general "rumminess" but nothing jumps out at you. Bonus points for being an honest, unadulterated rum.
