Gosling's Black Seal Rum
Most Americans like amber rum, because they like a milder flavor; white rum, because they like lighter fluid; or infused white rum, because they have no taste whatsoever. But for the true rum experience, you want black rum. The oldest and most strongly flavored, black rum has a strong molasses taste and invigorating aroma that are easy to appreciate. Black rum is also great for mixing, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Black Seal is a solid black rum. It lacks the medicine taste of cheaper black rums, and is about as strong as rum can be and still go down smooth. Black seal is perfect by itself, or over ice with some lime, but it’s pushed as a mixing liquor. The trademark Dark ‘N’ Stormy is a worthwhile cocktail, but almost any of your favorite rum highballs will work with Black Seal.
