Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Very light taste. A little too light if you are a connoisseur. Recommend as an entry level.
The dryer version of the classic Black Seal. A good rum to blend.
I like it with ginger ale (1/2 rum, 1/2 ginger ale witha squeeze of lime).
Bought this from a recommendation. NIce rum...but not my first choice. Missing some bold flavour.
This is what rum tastes like. Not garbaged up w flavorings but gently sweet. For mixing I prefer Goslins black but this is a nice lite. First had it in Bermuda where they breathe rum. Easy rum swizzle cheat: mix any raspberry lemonade w/ 30% pineapple juice. Toss in equal parts Goslins Black 140 and Gold 80 you have to your desired level of booziness. Top w a dash of Rose’s Red or cherry juice.
This rum is decent. Would I run to the store for it? No. While smooth, there are others I would recommend in its place.
wanted to try the Bermuda style after reading several good reviews. I found it lighter than I expected, but still a fine rum.
it is fine as an amber but not as smooth or as much flavour as it darker brother
Ένας το τιτλοφόρησε "not good" και του έβαλε 6 ..... άλλος το τιτλοφόρησε "Not bad" και του έδωσε επίσης 6. Το ήπια σε σφηνάκι, το ήπια σκέτο , το ήπια με φλούδα πορτοκαλιού ..... και στις τρεις εκδοχές του μου άφησε μια ευχάριστη αίσθηση . Η γεύση του είναι ωραία και αφήνει μια πολύ ελαφριά γλύκα στο τέλος, παρόλα αυτά δεν έχει διάρκεια και σχεδόν καθόλου αρώματα, γι αυτό και το 6αρι ...... Άλλη μια καλή, απλή επιλογή όταν πρόκειται, για φτηνό ρούμι !!!!
I'm a big Goslings fan so I've been trying to find this rum for a while. It's fairly smooth but doesn't have much flavour to it, reminded me of a slightly sweeter Mount Gay Eclipse. Probably very good for mixing but I think I will stick to the black seal.
Intense butterscotch aroma with floral hints and traces of vanilla. Initial sweetness leads to complex caramel flavours and layers of spice. Smooth to sip but not a complex flavour ,similar to black and would make somewhat of a dark and stormy.
Hey I got to try this rum at a buddies place , the lite amber color is not as appealing in the glass as a nicely aged rum but this rum when mixed with coke has a sweeet butterscotch taste .i found myself pouring myself another as the taste was something familiar that I couldn't put my finger on like a candy from my youth , not sure if it's an all night drinker but to have a couple glasses with friends this rum delights with its sweet candy taste .
And quite different Gold Mixing Rum.
The Black Seal's naughty younger brother. Well worth a try.
Straw color. No real complexity. Aroma in the bottle and in my snifter really is just an alcohol fragrance. Fairly basic flavor with some spiciness and an immediate and lengthy burn. But only 80 proof. A little bit of oakiness to it. Definitely a bit of an edge. Works best as a mixing rum especially in various carbonated beverages.
Nice smooth rum, great daily drinker
Mixes well with coke smooth taste
Good color but biting. Needed multiple limes to take edge off
The initial smell and taste is harch. Lots of alcohol burn, but after a few minutes on ice a subtle floral and caramel flavour emerges and the alcohol subsides a bit. It still does not quite make a sipping rum, although I have just put the come back in the fridge without opening it, but would make a very good versatile mixer!
It is standard light rum with floral aroma suitable for cocktails, similar to Havana Club 3/7y.
Standard rum for mixing. Neat it's too alcohol tasting and too thin. Taste includes burnt sugar and chemical sweetener. Not for drinking neat but certainly not terrible or anything.
Sweet and slightly butterscotchy but the nose is of cleaning product.
Standard gold rum that was poor from the start.. not a great standard
Not as good as their Black Seal. It's nice, but not in my list of goto mixing rums.
Smooth and giving with cola. Not my first, second or third choice.
At least the Gosling's Gold does not have the very unpleasant rubber smell to it like the Black Seal does. The Gold bottle looks very cheap, the color is very weak and pale, a hint of sweetness to the nose. Not bad for a Gold rum, not good either. Mix it with Coke and down it goes!
