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.
Tasty, but not quite great
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
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!

"It’s initially sweet like liquorice, there is a little heat and spice in the mix and the finish is long and slightly bitter."
