“Bought me some bottles cause I couldn’t find Goslings to a competitive price cause I needed some dark rum to make Dark ‘N’ Stormys during the quite short Swedish summer. Tasted it first neat against Goslings Black Seal. Myers’s was then a clear winner because of nose and finish. When making the Dark ‘N’ Stormy contest I think it’s up to one and each of us to decide. When using Myers’s you get much more rum feeling mostly because of the finish. I prefer Myers’s but Goslings is also great so I think it’s all about personal opinion and taste.”
