Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Mount Gay Silver Rum bottle and label design looks pretty decent, but nothing special. Pure alcohol coming through to the nose and palate. Strong burn at the end, so better to mix it up, or skip altogether.

Tasted at Laka Lono on 10/14/21. Mild aroma of dough and honey. Balanced palate. Thin sweetness. Slight vegetal finish.

Undrinkable and unmixable - I'm not quite sure what this is meant for other than students on spring break.

I wouldn’t recommend in an rum forward drink. But can be good when you need a lot of drum for punches and batch cocktails.

Not really bad, but I didn’t like it. Absolutely flat taste and aroma.

Fairly soft and neutral aroma. A little sweetness and alcohol. Soft molasses. Hints of spice. Flavor is simple and straight forward. Not complex but clean and softly sweet before drying in the finish. Warm on the palate but not hot. Very non descript for a Bajan but it makes a nice mixer in lighter cocktails with fewer ingredients. Nothing wrong here just very light in all respects. Kind of a cross between the traditional Barbados rum and a more neutral Cuban style. with soft flavors and aromas.
I think the rating on this one is a bit unfair with some expecting it to be a great sipper but I don't think that that is the purpose of this rum. It's made for mixing and at $18 in Ohio for a 750ml it's a pretty good bargain. No sugar added here. Heads and tails above Bacardi Superior and more flavor than say Don Q Cristal. I give it a solid 6 for a good all purpose lightly aged Bajan mixer.

Sorry to be a downer here, but I could discern no rum taste, only rubbing alcohol smell. I decided not to put it in the coquito and used my buddy's Captain Morgan instead, which worked fine and has actually smells like rum.

If you are looking for a quality rum to compliment mixed drinks this is the one. Leaps above Captain Morgan and Bacardi.

It's better than Bacardi silver...but its just a mixer.

This review is for the newer bottling now called simply "silver" not "Eclipse silver" any longer. There is a lack of boldness which I guess should be expected... at least if it were a Puerto Rico White rum. It is not very interesting on the palate either rather neutral very faint spice, alcohol, bland. A surprising disappointment from mount gay! Its been a while since I had their older "Eclipse silver" I will have to do a comparison to see if the rum has changed and not just the name/bottle, I believe I have a bottle in my collection. Clearly this rum is targeting the mixing crowd even though a bit overbearing on the alcohol. Not what I expected, not terrible either.
