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The heavy funk is gradually superceded by the powerful drying & prickly heat of the 151 proof alcohol.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