Gosling’S Black Seal Rum
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.
The black seal has understandably become synonymous with Bermuda. It is the essential additive to Bermuda fish chowder, adds the island touch to Bermuda rum swizzle, is the tempest in Bermuda rum swizzle, is the tempest in Bermuda’s favorite cocktail the dark n’ stormy and is the most widely exported Bermuda product.
Gosling’s Black Seal Rum has a rich, intricate flavor, well balanced and nuanced with butterscotch, vanilla, and caramel. Or, as expressed up by the beverage tasting institute when they recently awarded it their highest honor, the platinum medal: deep, assertive, and highly flavored.
Very fragrant with herbal sharpness. At the finish, there is softness and elegance. A most complex, unusual spirit.
