Bought it with the single purpose to make Dark'n'Stormy with the original ingredients, but it turned out as an utter disappointment. A pretty flat and generic rum with better alternatives.

Probably the most distinct nose of any rum I've had. It's just loud brown sugar. As a cocktail maker I love it for it's intended purpose. It's great in a Dark & Stormy TM lol. It works well in Martin Cate's Naked Ape.

When I need a Black Blended rum, this is in my bar. It's cheap and fits the note required in cocktails calling for that category of rum. Outside of that it's kind of a single note to be very interesting.

Yes, I always have Gossling's in my bar ready to go. Yes I use it quite a bit. No, I don't drink it neat.

Might be better chilled, but I doubt it. Tasted like curry.

My first <> black rum. I like the spice notes. A little too much added sugar. Nothing a couple of ice cubes can’t resolve.

Great for an original dark and stormy. Very sweet and not a ton of depth. Overall good stuff but not incredibly versatile.

Very pleasant. Have yet to to try it in a dark and stormy, but I imagine it will be very good. Neat it is quite heavy

Not intended for sipping, though you could do worse. Some nice notes of citrus, for me orange in particular, and baking spices, lightly sweet. Very pleasant on the nose, not the most flavorful on the palate, but it does mix well, and makes for a nice float in a lot of cocktails. Short finish, light body.Definitely worth the price.

Probably wouldn’t drink neat but it’s an absolute must for dark m’ stormies.

Lost count of how many Dark & Stormy’s I had while in Bermuda. It’s a good novelty drink. Admittedly, I haven’t had one in years.

Dark N' Stormy has to Goslings Black Seal. I wish it were higher proof though.
