Even with familiar notes of vanilla and oak, this first encounter with Mount gay Eclipse Heritage Crisp & Aromatic will be the last. halfway down the bottle the thought struck me that this rum is best served in the company of a coca cola. As part of a Cuba Libre, Mount gay Eclipse Heritage Crisp & Aromatic delivers the goods πŸ˜›

Very light vanilla and oak aroma. taste is smooth again with vanilla but missing any complexity. Aftertaste is slightly smoky and spiced. Not bad, but nothing special. 6.5 points

Quite harsh, quite simple. Not bad but not good either, so 5/10 is the rating it perfectly deserves.

My usual go-to for mixing is Doorly's XO, but I was in a bind and purchased this bottle at a supermarket rather than my usual specialty store, and their rum selection was very small. It's fine for mixed drinks, though I can't savor it neat. At $23 I'm not complaining...the only previous Mount Gay I've tried is their Black Barrel at twice the price. I won't be repurchasing either variety, the best I can say is that they suffice in an emergency.

I mixed this with pineapple juice and citrus pop and was quite good no complaints

Entry level from Mount Gay feels cheap and taste like that too

No doubt this is an MG basic entry level rum. A bit harsh but too not bad at least on ice. Dry and very little sweetness which is not uncommon for a Bajan rum but it just seems a little thin and lacking character and flavor. But for a bottom shelf price you could do worse. I have had rums costing a lot more than this that were worse. Worth a try but don't expect it to "Wow" you. But how many rums well under $25 are going to do that anyway?

I usually avoid the brands rated below 6.0 here, but the price was about $18 (equivalent), so I took a risk. And, for this rating and especially for this price it was really good value for money. First taste was sweetish and light (but without a feeling of having tons of sugar put in there), and I would be happy to sip it for whole evening with pleasure. Comparing to the Mount Gay Black Barrel I recently tasted, it was less complex, less dry, less "mature", but much easier and pleasant itself. Also, went really well in drinks. I think it deserves much better rating that it has now, so I added a point for that.

Sippable with ice, otherwise to harsh, non complex flavour.

Strong and bold. Certainly requires ice if to be sipped or consumed on its own. Makes an acceptably pleasant rum and coke. Beautiful gold color, but other than this, it's nothing to write home about. Significant alcoholic bite.
