WHAT: Mount Gay Eclipse Black Spiced Rum Rating: NNNN
WHY: During Caribana - sorry, I mean the Caribbean Carnival - the rum will flow, much of it overproof and spiced, two categories that don't usually shine. But now that I've gone Black... the spicing is subtle; the 50 per cent alcohol isn't. Killer in cocktails and punches but also brilliant with dessert or on the rocks.
PRICE: 750 ml/$37.95
