Smooth dark Rum with a wonderful flavour.
on 10 June 2015
I grew up in the maritimes and have tried my fair share of different kinds of Rum. Black Seal is far and away my favourite. Full disclosure, I lived in Bermuda for 11 years, and this was my choice when I was drinking liquor so I probably developed a taste for it.
Never the less it is a wonderful Rum. Not too sweet, but not bitter. Very smooth with no nasty aftertaste. It's best drank straight, or with Ginger Beer to make a Dark and Stormy. I find Jamaican Stone Ginger Beer you can get in this country works nicely. The main thing is that it must have a very sharp ginger flavour. It also mixes nicely with Orange Juice or Coke, though it seems a shame to dilute it that way.
If you're a Rum drinker give this a try, and even if you're not you must try a Dark and Stormy. Your taste buds will thank you.
