Tastes like a dark secret that suddenly comes to mind but you swallow it back just in time.
The story of the Gosling's Rum dates back to 1806 when James Gosling, who was sent out to the sea by his father, heading towards Virginia, with 10.000 pounds Sterling worth of wines and spirits. After 91 days the charter on the ship Mercury ran out and James had to settle on Bermuda, where he opened a wine and spirits shop.
James Gosling returned to England in 1824 to open a shop with his brother Ambrose, a shop the Goslings maintain to this day. Their first Rum was produced decades later, in 1863, called the Black Seal – Rum that is synonymous with Bermuda, where it's produced. Today, the 7th generation Goslings lead the family business, in Bermuda, and are the largest exporter of any Bermuda made product, as well as the only company that blends and bottles on said island.
This ultra high proof Rum is not for the weak hearted. If you want to feel more like a pirate then an investment in this Bermuda Rum would go a long way to getting you there. Just don’t drink neat, that might get you there too fast and mean you can’t remember much of the experience after. This Rum has the signature sweetness of most Rum and is not over powered by the alcohol content. There is also a herbal dullness in the mix that makes for a smooth and easy-going mouth-feel.

Rum used to be accepted as form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
