This is one of the rums I have probably had the most of over time. A rum developed in 1911 and used in many mixers, which is where i learned about it in my teens way back. Not a super good sipper when you're used to the better Barbadian rums, but a very good choice in mixers. Have many memories both good and bad about this rum 🤣 Many a hangover have been traced back to this particular rum.

Of the sub-niche non-dunderhead expressions of the english style I always preferred the St Lucian Chairman’s reserve above any bajan expression including this one. It’s fine as a cocktail rum but nowhere near an essential expression for it, and in the choice Chairman’s reserve is the superior choice for the smooth and silky expressions of the english style. Smooth but quite boring is what Eclipse is.

For the price its a great rum. Possibly the best rum for somebody looking to get into rum but doesn't want to spend a lot of money. Light in taste with mild woody notes running through. A very typical of Barbados rum. Makes a nice mojito.

Mit Tropfen Wasser oder Schmelzwasser kommt sehr viel Süße durch, die ich pur nicht so rausschmecke. Sogar zu süß.

Heute an der Bar mal zum testen genehmigt. Hatte mir mehr davon versprochen, weil er in den Shops so beworben wurde. Angenehm leicht im Geschmack, mir aber zu alkoholisch sowohl im Geruch als auch im Geschmack!

Si fa conoscere timidamente, ma sotto sotto ha un suo lato positivo

Sehr dünne Vanille- und Holz- sowie minimale Fruchtnote. Bissiger Auftakt, leicht fruchtig sowie Holzeinfüße zu vernehmen. Langer, warmer leicht bitterer Abgang. In Summe merkt man die geringe Lagerungszeit. Wenig Charakter.

Jak za cenę 70 zł to bardzo przywoity i delikatny rum, idealny do koktaili.
