Gosling's 151 Bottling Note

A super high strength dark rum from Bermuda. Despite the 75.5% of Gosling's Black Seal 151, this is a very smooth rum, and it's utterly delicious. Well worth trying.

Gosling's Black Seal 151 Proof Reviews

Needs acclimatisation.

I think this has a really nice taste, but the alcohol content takes some getting used to. I like cask strength whisky around 60%, but this is a different ball game. I will just have to work on it. Has anybody told Donald Trump about this, it might fit his idea of administering medicine on the inside!

Yea its strong, tastes great though.

Got this for a xmas get together cocktail mixer. Had one taste and thought, thats probably the best tasting rum I have had in a long while. Kept this and got some cheap stuff from tesco for the cocktail.

smooth n oaky

pleasant smooth rum with oak notes.. not really that complex.. goes great with ginger ale but not my favour big rum.. i personally prefer "cut to the overproof"

I approve

My wife brought this back from Bermuda the first time I tried it.
It’s fantastic with fever tree cola.

An Overproof rum that's smooth!

After years with Wray and Nephew Overproof, I have to give Gosling's Black Seal 151 the crown! This rum is quite potent at first drinking, and I would suggest mixing it in a cocktail until you get the knack of it. Despite its strength, it's a smooth rum that I will be enjoying from now on!

Rum & Ginger beer soda

There is nothing better, I met a woman in Bermuda who was 103 years old & was sipping a glass of this with ginger beer. She was as strong as this stuff is and assured me that this is the fountain of youth.
God bless Ismay Steede!

Smooth and powerful

Bought a bottle last year absolutly beautiful and smooth be warned though dont think its like drinking a supermarket rum it outruns anything ive tasted ive been over the caribean and nothing has matched up to its distinctive taste and punch

I still love you... Just not as much...

Hated this a couple of years ago when I first tried it before I got into overproof rums. All good, then I discovered Woods. Now put back to back with Woods I find Goslings just a bit flatter and with less character. It pains me to say that, I think Goslings are great and very good value for money, just not as great and v. f. m as I now know is out there...

Boring. I see why people might like it since it's so mild in every way.

Simply LoveLeh

Been drinking the odd bit of rum over the years, thought I would give a strong one a go, pleasantly surprised at the smoothness of the rum, not surprised with the kick, well worth the price, would recommend to anyone. Especially as the weekend is here again

Top drawer overproof rum

Put back-to-back with Woods Old Navy 57% (which I love) this came out well on top in terms of taste. Both have the overproof kick and flavour for mixing, but Gosling have the edge for straight up flavour - albeit at a price.

Rum Swizzle

I brought a bottle of this back from bermuda in 1986, as id had it in my rum swizzles on the island. It was then, (and probably still is) the strongest spirit id ever tasted, and you only needed a wee drop as it had a kick like a mule. From what i remember it was a decent drink, and i may buy another bottle to relive a happy memory, but be warned it isnt for the feint hearted, especially if you drink it neat.

So smooth

27th October 2016

It's good

25th June 2016

My Oh My

the best ever on the face of the Earth. its got the "friendly" kick-in-the-head feeling a good 20min after consumpting. but anyway, must try.
and yous, u need to buy at local store! will NEVER substitute with anything. N E V E R

Tried it in Bermuda and love it!

Nice, after the initial shock.

A half hour after the initial sip has dispersed and your tastebuds have recovered, you can actually start to enjoy the taste.
Perhaps I should go back to the "weak" Woods 100° proof to save my stomach from melting.

Behind the burn

I need to try this again. After ordering the gosling 80 , which I love, was given this instead and didnt enjoy it at all. Every sip the burn obliterated the taste and other rum heads i was with agreed. Theres that distinct gosling taste but it seemed too buried in the proofing to appreciate. But I will try it again just to see if I still think the same. Maybe its just more of an aquired taste. I dont mind high proofing as long as I can still taste something other than alcohol!
gosling know what they're doing more thsn I do. Maybe its more of an aquired taste or depends in your moid at the time. Its certainly the strongest rum I've ever tried!

Went to bermuda in 2004 found the gosling black seal rum absolutely fantastic rum

30th December 2013

great drink

tried this last night in a zombie cocktail and its fantastic,pour it in a carved out lime and set fire to it then drink it it blows your head off,drink it straight in a shot glass without the fire and it is a smooth and sweet experience so trust me guys the fire is the best

The mymic

Once the volume knocks you on your ass, after you get up, its warming, sweet brown sugar, bitter licorice, and creamy vanilla in harmony, better than woods, and equal to pussers as far as overproof rum goes.

Gosling's Black Seal rum 151 proof

I am no rum expert, though every now and again I get a 'taste' for it. I've looked at this on several times, before I decided to 'give it a go' I am so pleased I did. It is very smooth, but be take note: the high alcohol content will warm you right through :-) It is excellent on it's own (with a nice cigar) or used for a rum cocktail, and it is great for puddings, cakes and sauces, that require a rum flavour. I am so pleased I tried it.

goslingsblack seal black rum 151 proof

never been great lover of black rum bought a bottle for friend and a sample for myself,super smooth,heart warming i am a convert,wished the sample was for my friend

11th June 2012


I never knew about this rum until I went to Bermuda. Since then, I haven't found one that's even come close. It's the smoothest thing you'll ever have the pleasure of drinking. Highly recommended.
