Mount Gay Eclipse

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Mount Gay Eclipse to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Mount Gay Eclipse Bottling Note

Distilled in Barbados, this expression from Mount Gay was named for the 'double phenomenon' of a total solar eclipse and the passage of Halley's comet in 1910.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is full and rounded with notes of fresh flowers and honey, a little vanilla and tropical fruit. The palate is fruity and well-rounded with notes of banana, vanilla, smoke, toasty oak, spice. The finish is long and spiced with toasty oak.

Mount Gay Eclipse Reviews

One of my favourites

One of my favourites ever since visiting the distillery in Barbados!

21st November 2020

Not the same

I don’t like the new recipe and won’t be buying any more

3rd November 2020

Absolute Classic

An all round crowd pleaser. Reliable and long time favourite!

Nice but anonymous

Pleasant. A lot like like an undistinguished Scotch. I will try it with mixers and try other rums...I am an ingenue here.

Mount Gay is all I drink, it’s perfect! Mixed with a dash of coke and lime - I fire it straight into my gub.

Go to rum

Go to bottle of rums for me, especially for price just so smooth especially mixed with ginger or cola. Really like my rums and had the fortune to sip a whole bottle of Ron Zacapa XO Centenario Solera Gran Reserva Especial (lasted me a month lol) but gotta say this eclipse rum at the price ....simply superb!

Good Ol' Gay

My first experience with rum was this beauty all those years back trying to be cool ina bar with mates drinking shots and vodka and wow it opened my eyes to a new spirit for me. Always have a bottle in the bar just incase a guest comes round as they ain't getting my xo

Shiver me timbers shes some good grog.

Gaaaarrrrrrr Avast ye... This is mine and the boys favorite tipple before chasing down a cutter and attacking her for the booty. Smooth like a sailors wife's breast and gets you three sheets to the wind after a few tots. The crews favorite. Gaaaaarrrrr.

Nice Rum

Good with ginger, very smooth

18th May 2020

Pleasant taster

This is a very pleasant rum which is a staple of any collection. Nice on the rocks, with a Cola/Pepsi mixer or on its own.

Not too much of a kick or even much of a burn, which only makes it flow faster...

Really good cheers

I'm trying it know on the rocks of cours the taste is good has a bit if a bite I found my new rum

9th March 2019

All good this side

We are members of the international sailing community. Mount Gay is very popular. Yesterday I found a lovely bottle of Mt G Black Barrel at a store called ULTRA near the southern tip of Africa. Highly affordable. 43% ABV and 750 ml. Can't wait for a reason to drink it with friends ... We love Mt Gay and we specially appreciate their support for the sailing community. Thank you Mt Gay! #MountGay

Nice allrounder

Good ole Eclipse, decent to keep a bottle in the house at all times. Nice as a sipper, lovely in a cup of tea.

29th July 2018

the eclipse is a very tasty rum and I keep a bottle of it always

I think mount gay eclipse is a very good rum but I have been searching for mount gay eclipse black not black barrel. I went on a cruise through the panama canal about 5 years ago and stopped over in panama and went the liquor store and found the eclipse black and as far as I am concerned it is the best mt gay rum. I cannot seem to find it anywhere. Is it been discontinued. Otherwise I'll have to stick with the eclipse.

29th June 2018

Great for everyday drinking.

Perfect rum with a splash of cola. Great for parties when I have guests mix their own and for when I want a solid drink while working in the garage. I always have some on hand.

31st October 2017

Very good drink

Very nice. Like a good sippin whisky
Soft and tasty

12th July 2017


Perfect with Coke anytime

17th March 2017

What did you expect

Good enough to throw in a rum and cola, but you won't see me drinking this neat.

No hangover

No hangover, drink as much as you want, go to work easy tomorrow. Maybe thats just me but it's a fact.

Opinions While Rum-maging

Four, but only because I've had the off chance of trying an 80+ year bottle of a Caribbean Rum of which I fail to remember the name, and it was incredible. Mount Gay Eclipse was still a delightful trek off my usual ventures and I wouldn't hesitate to find it on my shelf again.

Cocktail gold

For the price I had low expectations but it's surprisingly mellow and floral. An easy, if unremarkable sipper, but the honey banana notes make it a shoo-in for cocktails which is exactly what I was after.

Mount Gay Eclipse

Mount Gay Rum is the best. I have been drinking Mount Gay Eclipse since the Prime Importer was Laird & Co.
After all these years you now change not only the label but the shapes of the bottles. Them1.75 liter is much
Too hard to handle. It is much easier. To handle with
A handle.

Superb MIXING rum

Anyone buying this rum and expecting a sipping rum (as I presume the above reviewer did) is going to be disappointed. The clue should have been "It was really cheap at Asda ><).

As a mixing rum (cocktails, etc.) this rum really shines - it has enough flavour to cut through other ingredients. Also, if you spice it... Yum

The Mymic

I ordered about 60 pounds worth of run samples from mom but I still needed a little rum fix before they arrived so I went and picked this up at a supermarket. its a cheap rum, but it doesn't really taste that cheap, its not going to change your world, if you want a rum that will then Zafra 21 or El Dorado 21 is the place to go. For a cheapy tho, you can mix it, or cook with it, and it sips quite nicely neat floral brown sugar on the nose, and sweet creamy molasses on the palate, not so complex but enjoyable.

8th July 2013

I should have listened to above reviewer

I bought this as it was damn cheap at Asda. Expecting a decent experience to educate my palate. Far from it! Neat, it smells of paint stripper, typical sugary rum smell and that is it. Only way to get a decent nose is to add so much water (3-5 teaspoons) it ruins the true flavor, neat is just harsh. So I would say as a sipper this is a no no. As a mixer it is different though the general sweetness of mixers marries well and takes the edge off and makes for a different and almost premium mixer. Don't get me wrong for such a cheap price I shouldnt have expected much however a rum at a similar price of OVD which is a beautiful sipper to me shouldn't taste so harsh!Enjoy as a mixer, please!

26th July 2012

Smells like rum out of mouth, but doesn't taste so

Soft, sweety-sour, warming, but... nothing special to mention. Almost total mediocricy.
