Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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 dry rum, Barbados is the homeland of rum. Will buy again.
It's a good rum but I would't call it a 7. It's a step up from the commercial grade mixers. I can say at least MG is making an effort. It's nice to taste fruit as opposed to the gasoline finish of the other Gold rums in this price range.
A nice tipple that lacks 'something'. I can't quite put my finger on it but it lacks a bit of depth. Nice all rounder but a little bland.
Smooth and very soft, honey, peaches, apricot and mango. Fruity and little bit alcoholic, rum of good quality for golden rum.
Tried this at a local bar as a sipper. Presentation is mild due to its lack of aging. I usually take a single ice cube with my sipping rum but this needed a couple to reduce the burn. Not a bad sipping rum in a pinch.
This is an excellent gold rum. This easily crushes any of the bacardi offerings and is not too much more. Any recipe that requires gold rum should have this. Looking forward to trying the bigger brother, the black barrel, hopefully it only builds on the solid flavor and body this rum is built from.
Yes, 40. Something my mom found from when my parents went to Curacao in the mid 1970's. No hint of oak but there was a sweet but slick feel that dried out nice on the finish. Quite enjoyable.
This rhum is very nice! A little too dry for me! Enjoy!
I think it is a great value. It has a great taste for the money and I am a fan of Mount Gay. I think they do an outstanding job and produce a good product.
It's age and smell - not to sipping, but the taste is very clean and the correct finish. Even closer to eight. MG Eclipse - the best standard in its class.
Unique flavors, always know it is Mt. Gay. Available in many bars, great mixer.
My go-to rum for a rum and Coke, eclipse is also useful for other mixed drinks. It's quite smooth and slightly complex without trying to hard. It's just good.
great rum even better with it being a low cost rum. would recomend to all rum drinkers and it has a little kick of heat after the swallow
Cena úměrná kvalitě, chutný rum, v Crossu žádnou bídu typu Morgan totiž neprodávají.
Hard to really add anything anyone hasn't already said. Good for step up from a run in the mill Bacardi or Captain Morgan but probably not smooth enough for sipping neat for most, imho.
Great for Tiki drinks calling for a gold Barbados rum.
It's an okay rum for every day drinking. Nothing special but you can pick up some of the notes like floral but nothing else
Definitely not a rum I would buy again. Found it to sour for my liking.
Mount Gay Eclipse is a wonderful tasting rum - with great flavor from the oak barrels. Mount Gay is one the oldest rum distillery's and they have maintained the delicious flavor. Eclipse is a must in every bar
if you want a straight up rum mixer mount gay is a good starting point
adds more to a drink than a white rum would. but nothing too complex or needing spice
I prefer white rum in boat drinks but, for a Cuba Libre - this is my go to. It's got a nice flavour with a bit of a bourbon taste. Smooth drinking and flavourful as a mixer.
This is not a sipper for me and I don't rate it as one, I rate it based on its usage. Rum and coke at my place is served with Mt. Gay
Good rum better than captain Morgan or Bacardi. Good for mix drinks or with a splash of coke.
We have been drinking this for years and has served us well. Started making an effort to discover new rums in the last year, looking forward to trying many new rums.
a step above captain Morgan. Not a superior or top shelf rum, but very smooth and a pretty decent mixer, also not bad to drink on its own.
