A full bodied rum from Barbados, very enjoyable. This was awarded its 5th Gran Gold award at the Monde Selection in Brussels, as well as a trophy at the 2001 International Spirits Challenge in London. I really don't care for any of the other rums produced by Mt Gay, but Extra Old is, to me, the best 4.5/5. In my opinion Mount Gay Eclipse is a better mix than a sipping rum. The second sample (Mount Gay Extra Old) was darker, tastier and more flavourful than the Eclipse and I really enjoyed its taste. Will without a doubt acquire a bottle of Mount Gay Extra Old in the near future.7.8/10.
