The James Gosling family business first produced Gosling Black Seal rum in 1806, and it is now the oldest surviving business on the island of Burmuda.
Gosling 'Black Seal' rum received it's name from the black wax originally used to seal the bottles. It is Bermuda's most widely exported product and considered the nation's national drink.
I bought this brand awhile ago after reading about the origins of the "Dark & Stormy". As call rum and good ginger ale is one of my favorites, thought I would give it a go. Not again even if you're buying. I've never tasted motor oil but have to say I think it would be something like this. I'll have to ask Dominic Greene. Also tried their canned ginger ale mixer, don't it's packed with corn fructose.
This is the rum I use for my dark 'n stormys. It does a great job, but also one I can sip on the rocks if I don't feel like a cocktail. I always have a bottle of this on hand,
Sugar: 11 gpl. My first review of this rum was from my Rum and Coke days. Having moved away from that stage when this rum was a "headache in a bottle" I recently tried this in a Bermuda Twizzle and everyone loved it. I was not going to buy this rum again as a sipper, but as a mixer it is very good in mixed drinks such as Hurricanes, Mai Tais, Swizzles, etc. At $25 a bottle in Canada it is a great deal.
The obvious Dark n Stormy mixer, but nice with coke or ginger ale too. Smooth for an inexpensive rum. Plays well with sweeter mixes as well.

I first tried this in Bermuda in a Dark N Stormy and I have used it exclusively for that drink. It has a distinct flavor that I have to enjoy in drinks including rum punch .
Goslings is a good rum with a good flavor and a fair amount of spice. While it is perfect for the Dark and Stormy cocktail, it's mellowed spice is somewhat of a blessing and a curse. It is good as a stand alone and works well with plenty of cocktails but the spiciness hinders it from being as versatile as Myers (which is ridiculously underrated on this website.) It's actually more similar to Kracken but a better rum overall than that. It's definitely a solid rum that should be tried during your next trip to get some liquor as it is also very affordable.
Gosling’s is the go-to for dark rum. The infamous dark and stormy wouldn’t be the same without it! A great mixer, primary or stand alone rum. There are better rums out there, but for the price and the flexibility of this dark rum, it’s a must have.
It’s an ok rum as a mixer, I’ll give it credit for that. Definitely had that dark rum molasses flavour profile. FDC 5year is a similar price and better as a mixer in my opinion.
Most of the higher rated rums on this app are for higher quality and often more expensive ‘sippers’. This rum is not a ‘sipper’, but will be just fine for many to mix with their preferred drink.
Porządny karaibski rum do drinków. Ciężki czuc słodyc. Nie jest to rum do degustacji lecz smakuje porządnie. Dużo lepszy od podstawowych pozycji.
"It’s initially sweet like liquorice, there is a little heat and spice in the mix and the finish is long and slightly bitter."
