Mount Gay
Eclipse Rum

Category: Gold Rum

Date Tasted:
Country: Barbados

Gold color. Aromas of pineapple upside down cake, orange marmalade, apple-cinnamon pastry, and butterscotch pudding with a satiny, vibrant, fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length toasted coconut layer bar, caramel coated almonds, and baklava finish. A tasty gold rum with plenty of punch-friendly flavors.

Golden Rums, also known as Amber Rums, are generally medium-bodied. Most have spent several years aging in oak casks, which give them smooth, mellow palates.
