Not bad! Not great, but not bad! Even with the extra ABV, I found this to be reasonably smooth, nice warmth with just a bit of burn. A decent amount of sweetness but not too much, some baking spice, mild pepperiness, hint of wood. There are far better sipping rums, but this would do in a pinch and not be too disappointing. I do look forward to mixing it, but have not done so at the time of this review, so do keep that in mind. Though it might not matter too much....??

It sounds like this rum has not been available, at least in the USA, for a while now? Recently hitting up a bunch of small mom & pop shops, found 2 of this expression at one place. $19.99, dated Jan. 2012 - assume the old, red price stickers like you don't see anymore date back to the same time! Like another member, bought the two of them, one to try and one to collect. I'm sure in 50 or 100 years when I'm long dead and gone, it'll be worth $25.00...

Would I buy it again? Not sure, but if you find one somewhere, it's worth giving it a try.

For a $22 bottle this is a great value. Actually an acceptable sipper. Would be an excellent mixer. Smooth. Not complex. No finish but very drinkable.

Nice one, a bit sharper in the end, but a good taste.

Retrying it would be good.

This rum is meant for mixing and not to be sipped. Good for a rum and cola.

Hoped for something better, enjoy most Mount Gay rums this one was a let down. Harsh neat, more of a rum and coke rum, but why mess with regular Eclipse. Not for me.

In einem Vergleich mit dem Eclipse und dem XO getestet. Gutes Aroma, aber brennt ewig im Rachen. Mir zu schaef und unharmonisch.

This rum is carried by many supermarkets in my area and the choice of dark rums on the shelf is usually between this, Meyer's and Gosling's Black Seal. It's not good enough to be a sipping rum but it has more complexity than a Gosling's Black Seal and is the obvious choice over it for mixing.

Es una de esas botellas que compras porque las referencias de la marca son buenas, no es cara 10'45โ‚ฌ botella de litro, pero cuando te lo tomas no tiene nada del otro mundo, y mรกs cuando me gusta tomarlo solo, no creo que repita, no es malo pero hay cosas mejores y no solo es por el precio.
