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.

Hi

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.

I said to myself to start the Mount Gay journey with this one, has a decent rum smell, decent taste, not sweet but a bit of burn aftertaste. I can drink it neat if I had a bad day, otherwise with a bit of water, or on the rocks or with some drops of squeezed lemon juice. Surely it will be very good with mixers too

A solid standard rum to keep on hand for use as a mixer

This is a great rum for the price point and a crowd pleaser for sure. Great for tiki cocktails.

ordinary rum with a quite taste of spirit couldn’t drink it without cola. Not very enjoyable but drinkable.

...but there are nicer rums available in the same price bracket.

Mixed with ginger beer, coke or pineapple soda, it's very drinkable, but nothing to write home about.

I'd pick Red Leg, Dead Man's Fingers or even Captain Morgan's Spiced over this one, given the choice.

I found Eclipse a good standard house rum nice with a splash of coke, well worth having in a collection
