This is some strong stuff. Needless to say, the 151 proof is very apparent on the nose. However, on the palate, in a dark and stormy, this gives the ginger a spicy dimension and allows you to taste the other flavors that are normally masked by the strong ginger and lime tastes. An excellent addition to a collection which already has the original Black Seal.
This rum is not something I would heartily recommend as a sipper. Add it to some coke in reasonable amounts and it will hit you like a sack of tatters right upside the noggin. Good mixer and that about says it all.
I can say one thing very positive about this rum and that is for being 151 its one of the less harsh high proof rums out there.
still the king of dark and stormy. i have both goslings and this is the start of the night king .... a kicker but still deep palette full of brown sugar and caramel.. delicious
Pretty much rehash the earlier reviews. If you like the regular Gosling's in your mixed drinks but want some extra kick, use this.
Color : Dark brown
Flavour : Rich rummy flavour with a caramel and citrus note
Palate : Powerfull, medium length, rich
A good overproof rum to use in Tiki drinks
For the rare times i need an overproof rum, this isnt a bad choice at all and is quite rich and full bodied (not that im going to sip it straight up...)
Makes for a mean Dark 'n' Stormy, the drink is coincedentally trademarked by the Gosling's brothers in Bermuda!
I am a fan of Goslings Black Seal 80 proof, so I decided to go one step further and try my first overproof. Expectations: I thought that spirit of that content of alcohol would burn my insides immediately, so imagine my surprise after first sip when not only it did not melt my stomach, but also I could taste very pleasant flavours on the palate (even though it's 75,5%!). Definitely good choice, this rum turned my Dark'n'Stormy truly into a stormy cocktail.
After enjoying the 'regular' version of this dark rum I thought I'd try this 151 version. It's nice but not quite as smooth as some other 151's I've sampled.
Tasted off of Buck’s shelf. Pours dark gold. Overpowering alcohol aroma. Works as a floater. Almonds and fire.
