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.

This is where the Mount Gay journey begins. If you were to compare this rum to an aged premium rum, you would be disappointed, but when you compare it to the same price point of say an Appletons it stands up well. Smooth enough to drink straight or to mix with quality ginger and lime, of price is important than this rum has a lot to recommend it.

Good rum for mixing, smells good and rich, but the taste is too harsh. It's a good rum for mixing.
If you like spicy rums, you could also try to sip it.

Smell: caramel, vanilla, dry fruits, oak, not intensiv, some alcohol
Taste: vanilla, caramel, spice, alcohol

Sweetness: 2/5
Fruit: 2/5
Spice: 4/5
Mildness: 2/5

Der Mount Gay Eclipse war mein Einstieg den ich durchaus pur geniessen konnte.
Preis Leistung top.

Inzwischen ist der Black Barrel und der XO meine bevorzugte Wahl wenn es um Mount Gay geht.

Zu erwähnen wäre das diese Brennerei meines Wissens in keines ihrer Produkte Zucker schüttet.

Hut Ab! Karma +100

Einer meiner Top 3 Rums zum Mischen. Pur ist man beim XO besser aufgehoben.

Redelijke rum. Weinig diepgang in de smaken. Maar wel lekker met Cola.

Not over bearing or bland, just a good character. Soft nose, mellow on the tongue, vanilla notes and well mannered. I use it for as a core rum for tiki drinks
