had this rum recently

Barbados | Gold | 40% ABV

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.

Disclaimer: First "real" rum I tried so I'm new to identifying the different aromas.

Tastes good mixed with cola and it's really affordable as I purchased for only €19.95. Tried it as a sipper but it initially hit me with the alcohol scent and taste.

I'm sure this makes a decent mixer. Perfectly average. I may play around with this one in cocktails once I start running out of other bottles.

Tastes like a bourbon for me. I couldn’t find the typical sugar cane or molass notes… its not bad though.

Nehladajte tam ziadne siroke spektrum chuti.
V arome prevlada alkoholovost, rovnako aj v chuti. Ale staci ho nechat chvilu vyvetrat a je to super pitie za 12-16€
Ale asi by som sa mal ku nemu niekedy vratit na druhu ochutnavku.

This is the rum that made me realize $20 can take you much further with this spirit than any other. Further rum sipping made me realize that $30 can take you 10x further than Eclipse ever could. I've drank enough for one lifetime, so I don't revisit it much.

this very high rating is for mixing, it makes good rum & coke or daiquiri, of course neat is so so,
a 1 liter bottle costed me 29,25 euro so it s a mixer (and really a very good one)

Drinkable on its own, but not made for that. Works good in a Rum Punch.
