Porządny karaibski rum do drinków. Ciężki czuc słodyc. Nie jest to rum do degustacji lecz smakuje porządnie. Dużo lepszy od podstawowych pozycji.

Never heard of this rum before until I bought a bottle. Not really buying it again because of the strong alcohol. Taste and smell are good, just not pure.

Nothing much to say - there are many better rums on the market

Owning the trademark for the Dark N Stormy, Goslings Black Seal is the only allowable choice unless you fiddle with the name of the cocktail. That said, it makes a pleasant DnS- if paired with a great ginger beer and fresh lime juice. Goslings makes its own ginger beer, but I won’t be buying that again. Way too sweet.

From looking at the bottle one might think goslings is a cheap rum and price wise it might be, but it is actually quality stuff. I'm not the biggest fan of spiced rums, but can appreciate from time to time. Goslings Black Seal is about synonymous to Kraken. Don't expect much complexity, but this is solid stuff. If you enjoy a sweet, spiced rum that goes down smooth, give Goslings Black Seal a try. It serves as a great mixing rum that can even be enjoyed over ice.

I don’t like this one at all! I haven’t tried making a dark and stormy yet, but its foul taste can be forgotten in a painkiller.

I really like this rum. I like it better than many of the “premium” rims out there. The price point is great, too. Best in a Dark and Stormy (which the drink is named for) or. Cuba Libre.

The benchmark for a Dark and Stormy. Drinkable with ice, but fantastic with a good Ginger beer.
Also mixes will with cola, but I love the way it stands up with a solid Ginger beer. (Fentiman's is my preferred mixer!)
