Arctic Wolf's review    

Recently the distributors for Mount Gay Rum (Select Wines) arranged for me to receive a few samples of the Mount Gay range for the purpose of reviewing them on my website. The first of these reviews is for the Mount Gay Eclipse Silver Rum, a Bajan rum from the Mount Gay Plantation on the Island of Barbados.
