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 flavors capture its island home, with a thick sweetness and rich fruity tang throughout. It rounds off well with a mouth watering spicy kick.

Rum (usually) comes from molasses; the sweet and syrupy residue left behind after sugar crystals are extracted from sugar cane juice. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, which can contribute to the final flavour.

John,
Classic and light, has a little bite on the end though so not the best for sipping.

Strong alcohol aftertaste when drank straight but not bad in cocktails.

Hands down my favorite rum
 
Michael
Michael,
sweat and pretty smooth up front, but it has a weird aftertaste
 
CHRIS
CHRIS,
A great rum for a hot day, something we have had a number of in SC. I like it with a lime sour mix, something not too sweet.
 
Danny
Danny,
It was meh. Definitely, only a mixer and not to be by itself.
 
Barry
Barry,
Great for mixing with coke or tonic.
 
Tina
Tina,
Tastes like cheap rum to me. The alcohol harshly comes through and leaves an awful aftertaste. Tried mixing it with pineapple juice and can still get the harsh aftertaste. Glad I didn’t pay that much for it but won’t be buying it again.
 
Pete
Pete,
Not generally a rum drinker, but this is very good. Best in a Hot Toddy with only a small amount of Honey. Mixes well with Coke. Subtle spice aftertaste and very smooth all around.
 
Daniel

Not a good one

very smooth
 
Scott
Scott,
Was spicier than expected which makes it difficult to mix with a lot of the common mixers that I use for rum. Alone, on the rocks, it was an excellent drink, but I generally mix rum. Once you get past the spice it's got an wonderful taste, and I'm a fan of spice as well.

sweet and smooth, something that's not expensive but feels fancy
 
Craig
Craig,
This is an ok choice for mixing. I did find this somewhat local a little cheaper.
 
Alec
Alec,
Very floral by my tastes followed by a mellow spicy that's almost mustardy. Slightly medicinal finish but fairly smooth overall
 
Andrew
Andrew,
The perfect rum for mixing! My Gay and Tonic with lime!!!
 
Brenton
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.
