I first heard about the drink, Dark N Stormy, which contained ginger beer and something called Gosling’s Black Seal Rum. I love rum (who doesn’t) and decided to set my sights on getting my hands on some of this stuff. Finally, the chance to purchase presented itself and viola! Gosling’s Black Seal Rum.
I’m a big fan of the Cuba Libre, so I decided to make one using Gosling’s. I found it first to be very pungent with the smell of molasses. The taste was the same. There was a slight bitter aftertaste followed by a sweet molasses finish. This is definitely an interesting rum that bears a little more scrutiny and tasting to give a full review. Of course, happenstance I locate Ginger Beer locally, and not just Ginger Ale, I plan on mixing a Dark N Stormy.
