Default Black Seal Rum

What do you guys think of Bermuda Black Seal rum? I am having a glass with some Barretts ginger beer "dark&stormy" as I write this. I have always loved a good Scotch but never quite looked at rum in the same way of a quality spirit. I am learning though.

That is the classic Dark 'n Stormy. I think you'll find rum to be a fine spirit though it lacks at least some of the cost and snob appeal of good Scotch. I think you'll find this forum to be educational, friendly and, like the rum in your glass, very approachable.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.

Gosling's Black Seal is an irresistable force that will transport you to the world of rum appreciation. Go buy a bottle (or a case) today!

That's a classic full-bodied rum that brings the flavor of the tropics to any drink that includes it. You've joined the ranks of many a person that's enjoyed a dark and stormy cocktail.

Ah Barritt's!!! How I miss you! I wish I can get some again, if anybody knows where to purchase in bulk, help me out! We've been using Regatta by the case load since Barritt's ran dry in PA.

Black Seal is great stuff and a solid introduction to good rum.

The Dark n' Stormy is one of my favorite cocktails. The rum is delicious and versatile. Welcome to the forums!
Rum is the answer. What was the question?

To me, Black Seal is one of the most flavorful and unique rums on the market, especially for the price. In respect to price, it occupies the lower end of my collection. In other words, at $15 for a bottle, it's not something I have to think about when I buy it. Flavor it has.
