Top reviews for Gosling's Black Seal:

— 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.

— Superior for the dark and stormy!

Michael,
A little too much neat, but fantastic in a Dark 'n' Stormy

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.
