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.

This is one of the better ones that is stocked at most bars. A good choice for a cocktail party or other get together where the other choice is Bacardi Silver (like most places). I do enjoy it over other's that are typically stocked.

Decently smooth, with a good taste. As it is also fairly affordable, it makes a great mixer and go-to "gold" rum.

This is a good rum for cocktails without any flaws but it won't stand out too much. Often a good value but not something to seek out. ...

Sweet nose that is barely there on the palate, more alcohol than anything else. Had the Eclipse after a tour of the distillery.

Let's be honest, it's a very cheap rum, but as a mixer it's actually decent for what it is

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

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)
