Mount Gay Rum Eclipse Black is admittedly targeting a younger demographic, the company says. It is made from a blend of single- and double-distilled rums aged from two to seven years, resulting in a rum that is 50% abv (100 proof).
Master blender Allen Smith ages Eclipse Black in lightly-charred Kentucky white oak casks.
The blend will be available at a suggested retail price of $24.99 for the 750ml bottle.
