My Mom got this while in Bermuda this one is 140 proof. Perfect for tiki type cocktails or a lethal rum n’ coke. The taste is better then most overproof rum, Plantation OFTD is still the best. None the less it was a great Christmas gift from mom.
You can taste the alcohol but it doesn’t burn at all! Being an overproof it was difficult to taste anything other than alcohol. I imagine it would very good as a cocktail spirit
This is not delicious by any means but it serves its purpose as a 151 with some flavor. If you're looking for a serious upgrade try Hamilton 151.
Not bad. Let's face it, you bought it for the alcohol content. Not complex, but it makes a great dark and stormy. It's better than Bacardi, which isn't saying much, but the flavors are richer.
I would say that in my experience, I do enjoy cause goslings overproof black rum maybe a bit more than plantation oftd however the fact that I am as a Torontonian am able to pick up this bottle time has made of TD more of a special incense. this is a solid black room with great flavour and his a great companion with most mixes. It really is a working horse.
Color, very dark amber, probably lots of added caramel colouring, stains the glass when it dries up.
Nose: toasted dark sugar, licourice, raisins
Taste: all of the above, bit sweet (sugar added?)dark chocolate,
Finish: sharp and bit harsh, tannic, drying oakiness, lingers for quite a long time.
Overall: Decent overproof for mixing, is also ok when sipped diluted with some water.
Not my favourite overproof but is quite good mixed in some tiki drinks.
Really yummy dark rum that is great with ginger beer. The extra concentration lifts it nicely into the next level regarding dark rum flavours, but its a little easy to get carried away, and its a fair bit pricier than the standard Black seal, which is why I have deducted a point.
Not recommended for people that take pride in 'holding their drink', totally recommended for people that like a versatile dark rum
Run away from Gosling's 151 Black Seal Rum. It is nasty! Rubber and glue hits you straight to the nose and palate with a super strong burn over powering everything else. Just awful.
The magic of this rum it’s its strength and its diversity. This makes a cracking mojito or is nice just over ice.
Not overly sweet and even some bitter notes in places, that helps keep it fairly neutral.
This would make an amazing after supper tipple by the fire !!
