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
Pleasant and surperisingly light rum to be so dark.
Not over sweet and the No 1 rum for your Dark'n stormy.
Rich in flavour with molasses sweet finnish
Affordable dark rum from Bermudas. While mostly known as a mixing rum for Dark N’ Stormy, I purchased a bottle to test it as a sipping rum. Although sweeter than my preferered rums, the sugar level (11 GPL) is minimal unlike other sugar bombs I have tasted. This rum is actually a nice change and fine on its own. Molasses and caramel are evident but not overwhelming. Nicely surprised by this rum.
This is a far departure from the other rums you have tried. Not a fan, it is very heavy and bourbon like with a stout type of fullness it leaves you with. Will not be buying this again but if it is around at a party, I suggest you see for yourself.
Nothing I prefer as avec or for zipping, but perfect for my favourite rumdrink “Dark ‘N’ Stormy”. So I rate it a 5, which for me is the highest rate I give a mixer rum.
