Default Black Seal

Tonight, I just finished the evening catching up with Ministry of Rum boards, a raging fire in the fireplace (probably one of the last for the season) and sipping a 2-finger glass of Goslings Black Seal with a large ice cube. So unique and mmmmmmm so good.

You're lucky Malice. The Reserve has a limited distribution and is probably the most unique rum I've tasted. I've tasted it in a rum flight and opinions were very different. I would love to try it again.

Default Black Seal.

Great Rum, one of my favourites. Even better with ginger beer ( Dark & Stormy). For the best ginger beer, try to find the original Barrits can from Bermuda. It comes in a 12oz orange can and it is the best.

Family reserve or Black seal? Either one makes for a fine evening (even better with good friends)!!!!!

By the by, has anyone heard if Goslings is bringing out their own Ginger beer yet? I was in the Bahamas this past summer and they were talking about it at some local places.

Gosling's does have Ginger Beer and I can get it at the local liquor stores here no problem. I have some in fact. The bottle that is coming tonight is the Family Reserve, brought back directly from Bermuda last week.
