It's not as dark as one might think. I expected something black and heavy but the appearance really did reflect the experience. That is to say, a little thick/creamy with mostly caramel and a hint of molasses, some spice at the finish. A little too astringent as it is rather acidic, drier and although highly recommended with ginger beer, I preferred it on the rocks.

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.

Usually only slightly more expensive than your standard house rum but with so much more flavour. Great with ginger beer but very drinkable straight up. It has a lot of the characteristics of a rum in the more premium £40-£50 band in terms of depth, nose how smooth this stuff is. Just great value for a very good rum.

This rum is perfect for the Dark N Stormy cocktail with it´s dark, thick flavor. Also good in tiki drinks, obviously.

Amazing in Dark and Stormys particularly in their branded special glasses. Try it with Gummi Bears at the bottom for pure novelty!

A great dark rum for cocktails. Brings everything up a notch just by using instead of "regular" dark rum.
