A truly superb dark golden rum made in Bermuda by Gosling's, who are of course much more famous for their Black Seal rum of Dark 'N' Stormy fame. To overlook this complex sipper would be a mistake, however - we think it's a hidden gem.
Bought a bottle while in Hamilton and brought it home. Put it I the liquor cabinet and opened it a year later. This is the best rum I've ever sipped. Always a fan of Black Seal Dark and Stormys. This is very refine and smooth. A great sipping rum!

I'm a lover of dark rum, my partner surprised me with this for my birthday and its outstanding. Pour into a glass and savour it slowly. Have a cube of chocolate with it and see how amazingly they go together. Pricey but easily worth every penny- the best rum I've ever tasted by far! Like treacle!

What an incredible rum this is. An incredibly long finish, with ever evolving tastes on the palette, caramel, molasses and even some smoke. I can’t say enough good things about this; Buy it. Love it. Buy it again, and again, and again…

I tend to be pretty picky with my rums, but as far as this goslings old, there are no complaints, gripes, forewarnings or anything of the sort. I wouldn't call it unique, but for rums that are gold, aged and crafted, this rum is certainty a great buy. It's up there with brutal 1888, mount gay 1703, and others alike. Invest in a bottle and take it slow, enjoy, and be happy. I can promise any rummy, experienced or not, that you'll love it.

I was given a bottle for a birthday present Dec 2011 and one of the best presents i received for a long time
A beautiful Dark sipping rum with plenty of taste by far the best rum I have ever tasted.
This will be a regular buy for me now and i hope a regular birthday present. The cost per bottle is worth every penny. mmmmmmm

By far the best rum I've ever tasted. It comes at a steep price, but if you can afford it, treat yourself to a bottle. You won't be disappointed.
