It's not as dark as one might think. I expected something black and heavy but the appearance really did reflect the experience. That is to say, a little thick/creamy with mostly caramel and a hint of molasses, some spice at the finish. A little too astringent as it is rather acidic, drier and although highly recommended with ginger beer, I preferred it on the rocks.

If you don't already know about this rum, start researching. PERFECT rum for the Dark and Stormy drink of Bermuda. I always have a bottle of this to make dark and stormy's when the mood is right!

if you want a "Dark 'n' Stormy".
The ginger beer is actually the key as I've found a VAST range of flavors within "ginger beer"; Gosling's GB is tasty, although not cheap.

Still not the biggest fan of Black rums but its a quality product and has always been on my back bar. Stick it in punch or afloat the top of your Zombies!
