Overproof rum is the best way to kick up a tropical cocktail. Float this on a Chief Lapu Lapu and youโ€™ll taste what this can bring to a mix. Itโ€™s not going to bring the spice of Lemon Heart but itโ€™s extremely friendly and a bargain. Completely worthy of holding a spot in your cabinet.

Nose of sweet flavor yet with a hidden kick, tastes of dark licorice, anise and spice,

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.

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

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 expected fire, and yes, that is there, but it's also tasty.
Smells of spice and molasses, almost identical to Gosling's Black Seal 80-proof, just stronger. Surprisingly, by smell, there is nothing to give away the overproof.

Taste is brief straight. Chocolate, spice, molasses, and then numbing fire. Thinned with a little ice it pretty much tastes identical to Gosling's regular.

This is good if you're glutton for punishment straight, need to garnish with actual flames, or need something more intense when mixed in a drink or punch.

Still need to try this in the tiki drinks I bought it for (see picture), but I don't regret the effort to find it. (Btw, the Plantation Dark was just because it was cheap and I'm low on regular proof dark rum. Also picked up some fresh lemons and limes at the local grocery store.)

Molasses and chocolate without that acetone punch you get from other over-proofs. Because it tastes good, one almost forgets its 151 until you are hammered. Best as a mix. Giving it a seven because its rare to find a good over proof. Best in its class.
