Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is a solid mixing rum, nothing great.
On the rocks this rum is light. To be fair, I need to try more before saying that this brand is over-rated like Captain Morgan.
This review is for the newer bottling now called simply "silver" not "Eclipse silver" any longer. There is a lack of boldness which I guess should be expected... at least if it were a Puerto Rico White rum. It is not very interesting on the palate either rather neutral very faint spice, alcohol, bland. A surprising disappointment from mount gay! Its been a while since I had their older "Eclipse silver" I will have to do a comparison to see if the rum has changed and not just the name/bottle, I believe I have a bottle in my collection. Clearly this rum is targeting the mixing crowd even though a bit overbearing on the alcohol. Not what I expected, not terrible either.
Made some great mojitos with this Mount Gay Premium White where it gave a nice hint of rum while allowing the mint and citrus to shine through.
This is a good solid option for rum and cokes if you're looking for a clean taste without much character. Not saying that in a bad way. It just is what it is.
As much of silver rums, it is good for mixing and create dry rum drinks!
Got a bottle of Mount Gay Premium White Rum from a local grocery store on my last night here at Mexico City. Bottle and label design looks dull and basic. Strong alcohol and such a burn to your nose and palate. This is not a neat sipper due to such a strong burn, so mix it up with your favorite soda.
