Brilliant golden amber in colour, Eclipse bears a luxuriously complex aroma whose rich, seamless harmony is interwoven with distinctive floral and fruity notes of apricot and banana, with hints of vanilla and a subtle smokiness imparted by the Kentucky oak barrels in which the rum is patiently aged.

This is a mixer, a good one, still a mixer however. It is not good on its own with ice in my opinion, it is easily overpowered and swamped with water giving off a bitter after taste.

Mount gay with ice is the sweetest smoothest rum I have ever tasted.

one of the better rums, not the best when taken neat, better mixing it.

Not as good as Appleton Estate. Just tried a drop on its own and found the nose disappointing, the alcohol dominates any fruit. The palate is more balanced and quite smooth for a young rum but not rounded or complex enough for sipping neat. Good mixing rum though, I recommend making a punch with 1ltr fresh orange, 1ltr fresh pineapple, 250ml lime juice, a few dashes of Angostura bitters and a bottle of rum. Serve over ice with a grating of fresh nutmeg.

With you Pete it is one of the most drinkable for this price.

Mount Gay is a great "everyday" rum suitable for usage in a rum punch, cocktail or with coke.
