The total eclipse of Rum.
 
The story of Mount Gay Rum begins in the year 1703, on the Caribbean island of Barbados, when John Sober (seriously...), inherited a distillery, and invited Sir John Gay to help manage it. Sir John Gay jumped at the opportunity to give the Barbadians something special. He refined the production process and began producing noticeably superior product that has survived to this day. Mount Gay is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, Rum brands in the World.
 
Mount Gay Eclipse is the measure used by Master Distiller Allen Smith to judge all other Mount Gay products. This is surely a testament to its greatness. It was named after the “double phenomenon” that took place when a solar eclipse occurred at the same time as Halley’s comet passed earth in 1910. The flavours capture its island home, with a thick sweetness and rich fruity tang throughout. It rounds off well with a mouth watering spicy kick.

Rum used to be accepted as form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.

Chippy
Very floral by my tastes followed by a mellow spicy that's almost mustardy. Slightly medicinal finish but fairly smooth overall
Andrew
The perfect rum for mixing! My Gay and Tonic with lime!!!
Brenton
Rum and tonic, with either fresh limes (or mint, my preference) and you have the original pirate cocktail. Delicious and the perfect summertime drink whether your cutting grass, hanging at the pool, or plundering colonies.

Straight forward sweet brown rum. Neat or with ice and club soda. Thumbs up.

Hits the spot in the Caribbean

Nice sipping rum, not as harsh as most.
