A Pair Of Goslings Seals, Bermuda Gold, 40%, & 151 Proof, 75.5%

After enjoying the simple pleasures of Goslings Black Seal, I was happy to explore further.

Gold Seal is pale straw in colour.

A soft sweet funk presented itself on the nose which followed through into the palate.

The sugary sweetness was a tad overdone for me – but it had a good mouthfeel & an enjoyable prickly spice on the rear.

‘Sugar & spice & all things nice’ –  as they say – which isn’t how you’d describe 151 Proof.

At a staggering 75.5% – 151 Proof is a beast of a rum!

A ruby brown hue & rather than burning – an aroma of heavy dark funk replete with treacly molasses came through.

Surprisingly smooth on the palate – initially.

The heavy funk is gradually superceded by the powerful drying & prickly heat of the 151 proof alcohol.

Full of flavour & entertainingly attractive – it left your senses reeling.

Handle 151 with care!

This Black Seal Bermuda Black Rum is a popular seller from their varied range.

A decent pungently dark molassey treacle on the nose.

Easy delivery on the palate.

Mild mannered with a touch of spice at the end.

Distinctive labelling! c/othewhiskeynut

No rough edges & perfectly balanced.

A pleasant easy sipping rum that just lacked a little character for me.
