ECLIPSE illustrates the art of Barbadian and Caribbean rum. Created in 1910, its luminous, golden amber glow and distinct floral and spicy notes have pleased, ever since, the palates of connoisseurs the world over. Its subtle, balanced blend perfectly harmonizes taste and aroma. Ideal in long drinks or cocktails, it can also be enjoyed on the rocks or neat.
APPEARANCE: Its bright, luminous, golden-amber appearance is the first enticing indication of the fine quality of Eclipse.
AROMA: Eclipse has the most complex aroma of all in the product range. Although well harmonised, certain tonalities can still be discerned, namely;* floral, spicy (peppermint-type)* fruity (apricot, banana, prune, mango)* a hint of vanilla and a subtle, smoked oak character (derived from the charred barrels)
TASTE: Its flavour is in superb harmony with its aroma. Here, the complex set of aroma characteristics is magically transformed into subtle, well-balanced but exciting distinguishable flavour undertones. Revealing only a hint of the character of double distillate, and so not being of intense character, Eclipse is a light-bodied rum (as are all in the Mount Gay Rum range) which can be enjoyed when served in any fashion - mixed, on ice or neat
