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

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

The best thing that can be said about this rum is: it’ll help you forget your troubles!

As for the taste ... not good, not bad. Very middle of the road.

But if you’re travelling the Caribbean from your arm-chair, tumbler in hand, you’ll want to make a stop in Barbados.

I’m glad I went there, and perhaps I’ve been a bit hard on it, but I won’t be going back — there are just too many other exciting destinations out there for us intrepid drinkers!

Rum how it’s done for every day enjoyment. Light amber in colour with a light Demerara aroma from my favourite holiday destination. As my friend Max who is my rum sommelier, Mount Gay set the bar

Pour 2 drops of water in it and then be surprised of the effect.

This is our go to for easy cocktails...usually serve with a slash of ginger ale and lots of lime.

Its enjoyable neat or with a mixer, but not a stand out.

My first rum from Barbados. Before mixing, had it on a rock with a slice of orange. I was nicely surprised! Eclipse is a fair mixer specially with lime-pergamon juice and yes was also a very tasty "dark and stormy". Great choice as a starter to rums more than just a cheap grocery store poor quality mixers.

Bit of burn, but of brown sugar, nothing else. Dull.

Disappointing. Can't drink it neat, it's a push to use for mixing, likely to end up in the drain tbh, won't ever buy again, but willing to try their higher end bottles

Ebben az árkategóriàban van jobb választás, pl: Santiago de Cuba anejo.

Definitely not a sipping rum. Can add some depth and flavor to a mixed drink.
