Gosling's Black Seal 151 Proof
Zach,
Perfect for a strong dark and stormy

David,
For my dark and stormys
Gosling's Black Seal 151 Proof
Kevin,
Was not for me, very intense but again I should have expected that from 151 proof. However, if you are looking for a bold taste, then it's a good affordable rum.
Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum
Andreas,
Very heavy, bit too much for everyone in our tasting group.

John,
This was my favorite of the box, pleasing aroma, great taste, and a wonderful finish
Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum
Matthew,
Color is dark amber with red hues. Nose is tobacco, with notes of mollases. First sip is a little thin texturally, but full of flavors: dried fruits, a rye like spice, oak, and cinnamon. Finishes with additional baking spices that linger. Overall, quite nice.

Great mixer for Dark & Stormy’s
Gosling's Black Seal 151 Proof
Jason,
Too intense for drinking neat but great for mixing or lighting on fire for floaters on top of cocktails that call for that. Also great for cooking for the same reason.

Danny,
My go too at most local bars. A little sweet and way ahead of Myers or Bacardi
Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum

This rum is amazing, smooth, sweet and delicious
Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum
Debrenee,
Wow, truly the best rum I’ve had. Very smooth and has great depth of flavor!
Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum
Scott,
Very nice. Initial blast of oak, cane sugar and molasses in the nose. Up front more molasses with lots of fruit in the middle and a strong oak finish. Very smooth throughout with a bit of a bitter finish. I’m sure it would be good with ginger beer. We had a bottle of Cock and Bull ready, but didn’t want to dilute the depth of this fine spirit.

Michael,
Not a rum man, but this is nice. It could change my mind.

Mike,
IT IS STRONG - BUT FOR THE PRICE A GREAT DEAL - I JUST ORDERD MORE
Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum
Cate,
Just an amazing sipping rum. It is complex yet drinks smooth and easy. This tastes like more of a cognac that what one would expect from a rum.

Michael,
A little too much neat, but fantastic in a Dark 'n' Stormy
Gosling's Black Seal
guest,
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.
Gosling's Black Seal 151 Proof
James,
It's a lot people. Very strong, and it's not something I would probably drink on its own. I bought it as a floater for Zombies, and it works great for that.
Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum
Antti,
It is an outstanding, rich, corking rum with a sweet birth, a complex life that leads to a long & mellow death.
Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum
Konkel,
It really is the best!!! Perfect by itself or in a Dark & Stormy!!!! You can not beat the smoothness of this great spirit!!
Gosling's Black Seal 151 Proof
Scott,
I am not adept at the terminology but the scent of this is really nice, it is not too strong or alcoholy which is saying something about a 151. I didn't try any straight but it is fantastic mixed in oj and cranberry! Would recommend!
Gosling's Black Seal
Ronald,
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)
Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum
Byron,
Very good. Smooth and sweet without being cloying or syrupy.
Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum
Robert,
Unquestionably my favorite rum of all time. It tastes like you are drinking an oak barrel with a hint of sweetness. So smooth, and so rich. I'm actually sipping some right now.
Gosling's Black Seal 151 Proof
Michael,
Very strong and I don’t call it smooth.
Gosling's Black Seal 151 Proof
Scott,
Smooth, tasty. It's not a stand alone drink due to the high proof, but great mixed into other drinks.
Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum
Konkel,
Outstanding
Gosling's Black Seal 151 Proof
Nicholas,
Much like its lower proof brother (sister?), but with a little more alcohol bite and a little less syrupy feeling. I don't think it mixes quite as well.
Gosling's Black Seal
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.
Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum
Charles,
Super smooth. Best sipper I've had
Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum
Louise,
Smooth

Browning,
Smooth going down. Very flavorful!
Gosling's Black Seal 151 Proof
Byron,
Surprisingly sippable for an inexpensive bottle. I always keep one on hand for mixed drinks like Dark & Stormys and Egg Nogs

Dark, dark, rich
Gosling's Black Seal 151 Proof
Joseph,
It has a very strong flavor . Ito a good for making mix drinks.
Gosling's Black Seal
Alec,
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.
Gosling's Black Seal 151 Proof
Paul,
Strong, bites all the way down, but mixes good when making a tropical tea drink.
Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum
Leslie,
I lOVE THIS RUM!!!! So smooth, felt like drinking cognac.
Gosling's Black Seal 151 Proof
Erik,
Tastes like burning, and I like it
Gosling's Black Seal 151 Proof
William,
Wonderful flavor served with a bit of ice or cola by the pool. Extremely smooth for the price.
Gosling's Black Seal 151 Proof
Michael,
Delicious with a small splash of Coke, or cut with ice. To drink this stuff straight will cause the fire alarms in your neighborhood to go off!!
