The deep flavour of this rum brings to mind old clipper ships and comfort during dark, stormy nights. Goslings has a sweet taste with a hint of oak. This goes well with ginger beer for a Dark and Stormy. Mmmmm!

You can't beat a Dark and Stormy. Also mixed with Goslings Gold makes the best rum Swizzle

This rum was my first introduction to rums that could be enjoyed straight, with no mixers to mask the already excellent flavor. Black Seal is very smooth. A great introduction to the world of rum.

I have fond memories of drinking this with coffee. It's dark and tasty, even good on its own. A great black rum

a burnt rum smelling rum. I am apprehensive. Very strange at first, I didn’t like my first sip. However as I drunk more I couldn’t stop. I’m not sure what it is but it warmed on me. Slightly coffee tatse? It’s moderately sweet and doesn’t have a flat aftertaste that I’d expect. I actually would drink again. Overall 9

Unlike a Bacardi that brashly announces its presence, and overstates its strength, the Black Seal mixes quietly into a drink, adding a bit of sweetness to the flavor. Smooth enough to sip, excellent to mix, and most importantly: does not bring on a hangover the way that the more harsh rums will.

Very lovely & sweet tasting rum. Definitely up there with high end rums.
