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.
This is quite distingtive rum even in Black category. Deep flavour of molases with dark soily scents. It is quite serious and dry personality among rich black rums. Autumn liquore.
Goslings is a piratey rum which does not hide its features. It has a straight nose containing smoky notes that remind me of decent whisky. The palate is pretty rum-avg-like but nice. The aftertaste however tastes like smoky toffee and really raises the overall experience. Would buy again.
Nice rum for mixing, and good enough to sip too. I had it on my list to try and was not disappointed.
You can get it in most stores which is nice. Great in a Mai Tai.
I had added this to my Rum tasting Seminar and it totally took everyone by surprise on how amazing this rum is.Most of he group kept returning to it. The Feature cocktail was Dark & Stormy, but it was a huge hit as a sipping rum.
I recently picked up a bottle on sale for $16. Let start off by saying, at that price this is a good rum.
The scent isn't anything special - it has the smell one associates with dark rum. The taste is good, but not great. I drank it neat and it is easily consumable that way, although I'm sure it would be much better in a mixed drink. It tastes of caramel and vanilla with a slight, short burn after swallowing.
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
Quality rum, a must have in any rum collection. Smooth and full of flavour...love it
Din orice punct de vedere nu se merita incercat. La banii astia poti cumpara alt rom mult mai bun.
Un rom... Simplu.. Nimic deosebit, nimic deranjant.. Fără pretenții, fără poveste. O simplă aromă de rom și doar atât.
This was recommended by my local liquor store owner when my daughter was picking me up a dark rum for a gift. I gave it a 6 only because I gave Myers a 5 and I like it slightly more than Myers but will not purchase for myself. As everyone says, a sweet black rum but to me leaves a bitter coating on my tongue after drinking straight up. Definitely a "mixer only" to me. I did finish off the bottle so as not to hurt the daughters feelings but won't purchase again.
So I prefer Kraken whenever I drink Black rum. However the place I went to tonight offered a Dark N' Stormy made with Gosling's Black Seal which is a Bermuda black rum. It's a nice rum with a very sweet flavor that blends well with the tartness of the ginger ale. It's a nice rum to have as a mixer but in all honesty I probably wouldn't have this straight or on the rocks. It's not a sipping rum because it is sweet. It also doesn't have the complex flavors that other black rums have. It's a decent rum and one that I did enjoy but it may not be the right choice for everyone.
Lekker voor in een Dark&Stormy maar puur niet zo fijn.
I had tried this at a bar in a Dark N' Stormy thought it tasted like soot. After drinking half of it, I had the bartender to it if with more ginger beer and it was still horrible.
Decent supper. Nice flavor but nothing that sets it apart.
This stuff is not bad, a bit of molasses similar to a Black Strap type of rum. Good with a splash or heck a dousing of Coke.
Cinnamon, nutmeg and caramel nose with burnt caramel finish.
Smells good, tastes okay on ice, best rum I've had with cola. Not too expensive at £24.
This is my go to choice for rum and coke. When PA runs a sale, I can pick up a handle for around 25$ which is a steal for this rum. I love the caramel and vanilla notes. I always pair it with a real sugar vanilla Pepsi, it really helps bring out the flavors this rum offers. Also this is THE rum for dark and stormies. Barritt's ginger beer, a fresh lime half and this rum equals an unparalleled experience.
I love dark rums, and this is a good one, especially for its price! The strong aftertaste is lovely.
Le pire rhum que j'ai bu. Parfait pour déboucher les toilettes.
What can you really say about the rum that seems to have coined the reputation as "the" DarknStormy mix..
This is not a rum for sipping but for a dark and stormy it is just perfect
Different than "normal" rum. Much spicey but comfortable on the tongue. Good one
I really prefer this rum on many occasions. It has great flavor and it is on of the best values when compared to the much higher priced, high quality rum. You get a lot for your money.
