Mount Gay Eclipse Rum Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    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.

    I''ve favored MT Gay for 10myears - my supplier - DH has provided The Eclipse - I''m getting a quick zap of alcohol - acceptable - but don''t like the bitter aftertaste! This is recent stuff?

    I found the alcohol a little overpowering, enough to bring a trace of that "catch" in the throat, however if one perseveres ( and who doesn't! ) then lovely warm honey flavours come through and you find yourself pouring another, very more-ish.

    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.
