Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
The James Gosling family business first produced Gosling Black Seal rum in 1806, and it is now the oldest surviving business on the island of Burmuda.
Gosling 'Black Seal' rum received it's name from the black wax originally used to seal the bottles. It is Bermuda's most widely exported product and considered the nation's national drink.
had the dark and stormy and it was really good had a different taste i liked it
You can't beat a Dark and Stormy. Also mixed with Goslings Gold makes the best rum Swizzle
This rum was my first introduction to rums that could be enjoyed straight, with no mixers to mask the already excellent flavor. Black Seal is very smooth. A great introduction to the world of rum.
The deep flavour of this rum brings to mind old clipper ships and comfort during dark, stormy nights. Goslings has a sweet taste with a hint of oak. This goes well with ginger beer for a Dark and Stormy. Mmmmm!
Man, this is the best taste out there for the price. And I know I'm not alone in my thinking, after sharing with a couple of friends I have converted them from Rye to Rum
it's just very chocolate-y to me. I drunk quite a few Rums, but I am far from considering myself a connoisseur. I like spiced Rums and well.. whatever I simply "like". but this one stands out VERY strongly from the crowd for me. I loved it straight and I love it with Pepsi. (yes - I do drink Rums with Pepsi - as I don't Like Coca-Cola) :D
Dark n Stormies are great crisp summer beverage!!
Also, made a double chocolate rum cake which was delicious.
If you don't already know about this rum, start researching. PERFECT rum for the Dark and Stormy drink of Bermuda. I always have a bottle of this to make dark and stormy's when the mood is right!
Dark and smokey, no ice needed.
A very sweet dark. Usually drink this on the rocks with ice however it does fine with soda.
Strong slightly treacle aroma on opening with slight burnt overtone might not suit everyone but this really suited my taste buds. I got some spice flavours at the end of cinnamon and perhaps nutmeg. Delicious mixed. Highly recommended!!
This rum serves a special place in the collection! It's the base for a Dark'N'Stormy cocktail and really can't be beaten for that. It's rotten for anything else.
Works well in a lot of Tiki drinks. Recommended if your going this route.
Very lovely & sweet tasting rum. Definitely up there with high end rums.
One of my favourite rums for mixing. Particularly enjoy it with cola.
Non l'ho mai bevuto da solo, per adesso l'ho usato solo per il dark 'n stormy fumando anche un buon sigaro e devo dire che per l'utilizzo nel cocktail è veramente molto buono.
Consiglio di provarlo.
Easy rum swizzle cheat: mix any raspberry lemonade w/ 30% pineapple juice. Toss in equal parts Goslins Black 140 and whatever gold or white 80 proof rum you have to your desired level of booziness. I prefer Goslins because you taste the rum, not a bunch of flavoring. This is what a good pirate would be drinking 300 years ago... minus the swizzle of course.
Great for making Dark and Stormy's but also great on its own.
Spicy and rather smooth dark rum with charred oak flavor with some baking spice hints. Nice enjoyed neat or mixed with soda or in the popular Dark and Stormy cocktail.
I love dark and black strap rums.
Nice job Gosling!
Got this rum mainly for this drink, and it's it's a really good drink. The rum itself is fruity, sweet and earthy. Also works well with Coke. All around it goes down easily.
I had this rum in a seafood restaurant where they smoked the rum in house. This rum was good to start with but once smoked, and with some ice, it went to a whole new level. When you fist taste it you immediately get the smoky flavor. From there it becomes very dark and smooth. I haven't had it regular but I would imagine that it would be great in a Dark and Stormy.
Very nice combination of taste of the rum and the over-smoked barrels...
Nice aroma. Sweet tasting with hints of cinnamon and molasses. Served over 1 cube of ice.
I love this mixed, it seems to have increased in popularity and production and I think most recent bottles might be a little less well aged. Some have been a bit harsh and over flavoured. Still makes a great D&S
