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.
Ok for sipping but only bought for making Dark’n’stormy
I'm not a big fan of black, spiced rums but this one is very enjoyable. Think the flavour is too strong to drink it straight, but excellent with a bit of coke.
har kun smagt denne rom i en dark n stormy, som de så populært hedder, men der syntes jeg tilgengæld den gled ned uden problemer.
I heard they won the court case, making Gosling's the only way to make a genuine Dark n Stormy. Of course you can use other dark rums. Not only will it not be a real Dark n Stormy, it won't taste as good. Other dark rums work, just not as well, at least what a Dark n Stormy does for you. Another great thing about this rum is its price.
Nice color and was expecting a bit more based on that. Not much of a nose. Strong hint of coffee perhaps lingers. Tried in dark and stormy and most guests preferred other mixers.
This is a good dark rum, but much too heavy for me. If you like your rums that way, go for it. I have to dilute these heavy, dark rums in order to truly enjoy them - so the good news is I can have a few more before I've had too much - if you know what I mean.
This is a decent dark rum, but there is nothing outstanding about it... good with coke
What else would you use for a try dark and stormy? Ok there are others.
Has a nice taste to it but have only tried it in mixed drinks. I will have to try it straight to see harshness.
I don't normally like the dark rums straight but this one is pretty good. Its best with just a dash of coke.
I really liked this with a drop of coke. Enjoyed the brown sugar flavours, this rum has its own distinct flavour that sets it apart from the crowd. Must try these dark and stormys....
Love the notes of citrus and molasses / caramel.
Having patented the dark and stormy, this rum is excellent for that cocktail. You can drink it on it's own as well, although the taste isn't all that interesting and doesn't really evolve.
i had bought this bottle a few years ago to have a dark mixing rum in the bar. Opened it tonight and straight thought it had a strong coffee aftertaste. I don't drink ginger beer for a dark & stormy so mixed it with ginger ale. Ok as a mixer for my taste but not a sipper.
de color chocolate oscuro, con sabor a roble, es un buen ron pero en un nivel medio alto
Haven't sampled straight up yrt... stuck on the stormy!
Excellent to make dark and stormy. Hard to get the good ginger beer here (US)
. Was my go to drink in Bermuda.
This rum is decent straight up smoother than I imagined, but nothing out of this world it does have some different types of flavor going in in it like some baking spices and brown sugar. It does mix well with their ginger beer, adds much flavor and no alcohol present at all.
Really nice rum with a sweet taste
Drinkable in a pinch but would not buy a bottle again
preferable to Havana 7yr old in almost all cocktails. Excellent mixer but wouldn't drink it neat
i really like goslings with coke, but must try these dark n stormys to see what the fuss is about.
Výrazný tmavý rum s hořkými tóny, dobrý do koktejlů, ale k popíjení mě nelákal.
This one is the one to use to make a Dark 'n Stormy. For my everyday drink i use kraken since it´s cheaper. But this one is okay. Even if i prefer the 151 instead for the faster buzz..
Great for a dark n stormy, but not quite smooth enough to drink straight.
Great flavour, with a dark fruit (raisin maybe?) and molasses flavour. In the mouth it feels very thick when drank straight up.
A splash of ginger beer and Gosling's is one of my favourite rum cocktails.
