Gosling's Black Seal

Gosling's Black Seal

Unfortunately, we can't ship Gosling's Black Seal to the United States at the moment, but we've got some friends who can.

Gosling's Black Seal Bottling Note

Gosling’s Black Seal combines rums from both pot and continuous column stills. The name comes from the black wax that was originally used to seal the bottles, but now there’s an actual black seal on the label. The iconic rum has been produced in Bermuda since 1806, which is a pretty long time. "If you're doing something right, don't fix it" and all that... You’d be a fool not to serve this in a Dark ‘n’ Stormy, as the cocktail is actually trademarked by the Gosling brothers.

My favorite black/dark rum for YEARS!

And with good reason. It's dark/black rum the way it was meant to be!
Burnt sugar, butterscotch/caramel & molasses, maybe a whiff of vanilla, & that challenging, (slightly medicinal?) taste you can't quite identify, but don't DISlike, either, Gosling's Black Seal delivers that heavy rum quality you want (IF that's what you want!) in every sip. Good on ice, good in Coke - with or without lime, good in eggnog, or good as a straight, neat quick shot & even good as a sipper if you truly appreciate its best qualities like I do. (Lots of folks out there love a Dark 'n' Stormy made with this rum, too!)

Fantastic Product

I’m in Ireland & I love Goslings for my Dark & Stormy with Fever Tree Ginger Beer & the Juice of half a Lime & plenty of Ice. Fabulous Tom.

A very nice rum

It’s just delicious and very drinkable! Especially on its own or as a black and stormy. A good reason to buy another!

Excellent value for money

Got this specifically for dark and stormy, and it delivered. Not up there with my good sipping rums, but I didn’t expect it to.
I will have this in the hip flask next time I’m camping.

Excellent with ginger beer or as a rum cocktail!

This was the drink that made me a life-long rum aficionado after I was introduced to it when we lived in Bermuda. An excellent drink with a fiery ginger beer (to make the famous "Dark & Stormy") or with in a cocktail of fruit juices, ice and a few drops of angostura bitter ("rum swizzle")! Great to see that it is available in UK!

Plenty of ice ginger beer rum on top with a squeeze and wedge of lime

The only rum that makes a true Dark n Stormy, have sold it for 26 years and now will be serving them at my next port of call

Really Excellent if you're up for a stronger taste than usual.

I love dark rum so when I saw it recently appeared on the shelf at my local liquor store I decided to try it. First of all I drink spirits over ice or straight up as a general rule. And the taste of this one considerably surprised me. I wasn't sure at first if I want a second drink it was that different. Then as different tastes often do and I of course tried it again it started to grow on me and I'm loving the variation of spicy flavours that's quite different to the usual dark rum on the shelf. I've no doubt it's to be a favourite late night chilly weather drink because it's performed rather well on hot humid nights already. Definitely give it a try if you like the "taste" of rum giving your mouth a wallop!
