Gosling Black Seal Rum
Today, unlike most spirits, Black Seal includes products of both pot stills, as used in fine Cognacs, and continuous stills, as used in grappa. One imparts flavour, the other yields a subtle elegance. Together they work wonders.
Gosling’s Black Seal has a rich, intricate flavour, well balanced and nuanced with butterscotch, vanilla and caramel. Or, as expressed up by the Beverage Tasting Institute when they awarded it their highest honor, the Platinum Medal: “Deep, assertive and highly flavoured. Very fragrant with herbal ￼￼￼￼￼￼sharpness. At the finish there is a softness and elegance. A most complex, unusual spirit.” We were pleased, but hardly surprised. After all, we’ve been at this awhile.
