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The heavy funk is gradually superceded by the powerful drying & prickly heat of the 151 proof alcohol.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

A Pair of Liverpool’s, 12 Year Old, Single Malt Whisky, 46%, 16 Year Old, Single Cask Rum, 43%

There is a Gin Distillery in Liverpool – but as far as I know no whisky or rum is made there.

This pair of plainly – yet strikingly bold – labelled bottles would therefore be sourced spirits for the Liverpool brand who are in turn part of Halewood International.

The simple design appealed to me – along with the high age statements – so a couple of miniatures were ordered – via Just Miniatures.

12yo Single Malt c/othewhiskeynut

Liverpool Whisky, 12 Year Old, Small Batch, Single Malt, 46%

The whisky is light brown in colour with viscous legs.

A honeyed nose redolent of sweet summer fruits greeted me.

Soft, easy & inviting.

Back label c/othewhiskeynut

Quite a spirity little number – but possessing a decent depth of flavour & a lovely prickly spice on the finish.

A very nice single malt indeed.

16yo rum c/othewhiskeynut

Liverpool Rum, 16 Year Old, Small Batch, Single Cask, 43%

A deep golden brown – also with viscous legs.

Sweet caramelly nose with a hint of funk peeking through.

The palate was gentle & smooth. Layers of dark demerara coated the mouth before a growing oaky woodiness added drying tannic spice on the finish.

Back rum c/othewhiskeynut

These are both fine spirits.

You may not know who or where they were distilled – but they are certainly enjoyable to encounter!
