Top reviews for Goslings Black Seal Rum:

— First, I love dark rum. This is a good one for both sipping and mixing. The after taste is not a very harsh bite, so it goes down wonderfully. The only thing that keeps me from giving a 10 is the heavier than most molasses after note, but that is a personal taste preference

— SURPRISINGLY good - particularly for the price. If you like Rum that has actual rum FLAVOR and not because it will quickly get you rip-snorted, this one is hard to beat. You can sip it neat but not too pricey to feel guilty about mixing with it (I like it half-and-half with spiced rum, then top with Coke - for COLD winters it recently edged-out Meyers for Hot Rum Toddys)

— Spices all around. Nutmeg and maple are very front and center followed by a calming cinnamon. Brown sugar echoes the maple flavor. Usually I love Zacapa 23 but this narrowly edges out ahead of it.

Almost too much flavor, but good if you don't mind overwhelming whatever else your drinking it with

Heavy Molasses flavor light on the spice. I find this great for sipping or mixing with ginger beer.

Solid cheap rum. A good addition to any home bar. You can taste the ginger, ginger beer, licorice, lime juice, and a hint of cinnamon.

Nicholas,
This is my go-to dark rum. It's not terribly distinctive on it's own. Pretty good but not completely outstanding. I'm giving it a slightly higher rating due to its versatility. This is rum meant to be mixed.
