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

My third bottle of rum ever. I did a bit of a mistake having XO first (which I loved) and Eclipse after so I was quite dissapointed. Even I prefer to sip this one is rather for mixing with coke. Still not a bad rum. Pale color, strong taste.

For me, this is a really solid rum. Maybe not the most exclusive option, but very affordable and an excellent inclusion to a cocktail. Holds a special place in my heart as a rum I first encountered and drank on the beaches of Barbados.

Drinking this neat is underwhelming. The nose is more like whiskey than rum and it tastes a little thin, or lacking some of the robustness that the XO has.

It evolves into a pleasant sweetness with very little burn and a honey aftertaste. This would shine in cocktails where a light rum would normally be used.

Cheap and cheerful, a bit too spirity for neat drinking, but mixes well

Being new to this I give my own opinion, love this rum and most probably the 1st one I tried neat. Love the taste neat and with a mixer.

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.
