Gosling's Family Reserve Old rum is crafted in Bermuda from the same blend as Gosling Black Seal but is aged longer in dark barrels. Each bottle is hand-labelled and numbered.
Has a rounded sweet almost caramel taste on the front of the tongue, and a slight oaky taste at the back. Goes down smooth as water, no burn to speak of. If it wasn't for the price I could easily consume half a bottle of this in an evening as it's so easy to drink. Fantastic.
Like the label and webpage says, this is indeed a very well defined rum. Wonderful flavor and aroma.Everyone needs to try this one. It was especially nice served over some North Atlantic Iceberg.
"Home sweet Home"
This rum is definitely one of my best rum's I own, and I prefer it over a lot of others. I'm not saying this because I am a Bermudian :-p but because I love sweet and rich in flavor rums. This rum has a dark texture and a smoothness better then any rum I have had thus far. The flavor is rich in molasses and chocolate; The texture is silky smooth like comparing dress pants to fine the linens but for your mouth. But this rum has a special place in my heart I hope when you taste it haves a special place in yours. Thank you for reading and great sipping.......
Very nice on ice..havent had Goslings in years. My father-in law gifted me this special bottle.
This is a true dark rum , well balanced smooth taste slightly sweet. MY favourite rum, even bottled like a classic.
Best sipping rum I've tried to date. I get a bottle at Christmas every year.
Great bottle great packaging
Let it breath and then sip
Love this rum
At the moment my favourite sipping rum. Smooth and flavourful. I prefer it it neat, no ice.
Un goût de chêne, vanille et de caramel. Un peu épicé, poivré mais très doux. Un final très longue et complexe. Un peu cher mais la qualité est la.
Aged well, and very smooth. Nice caramel flavour. Definitely a top shelf. Over ice is the best
Very happy with that, very smooth with small amount of Cola, ice and lime. Yes very smooth... Ordering more bottles very soon:) If you are looking for something that doesn't bite and enjoy a drink- this is it!
Treat it lovingly, and let it rest a bit in the glass. We love the heady aroma and pleasant caramel.
Plenty of spice and chocolate, but so smooth and soft and not too sweet. Over ice or its own!
One of the best bottles. A Nice dark rhum with lots of dried fruits in the aroma.
A real sipper with taste of caramell, oak and spicy one of the best I have tasted
spent a lot of time in bermuda so drinking the standard black seal rum was a very regular habit. this one takes all those flavours, mellows out the alcohol and is much richer and smoother. could drink this and only this forever
This rum is outstanding! The presentation is gorgeous but the rum is even better. Literally you can taste something different every sip! Don't cut it with anything. Straight up with a few drops of water to bring out more flavor. The cost is steep, but if you can afford it, you won't regret it!! I promise!
Strong sipper comes in a great package a fine gift for a good friend.
Nothing to say about that rum that stand out of the crowd, has to be tryied...
Smooth, sweet and a great nose. A little vanilla and fruit, with a touch of leather and wood. Perfect neat.
Gosling's Family Reserve is a blend from Bermuda. It comes from the same barrels as the Black Seal but is aged up to 16 years.
It has a very complex spicy nose which is really intense. It can literally fill the whole room.
Gosling's Family Reserve is a true premium rum delivered in a nice wax sealed and hand numbered bottle. It is very complex and combines a litte sweetness with nuances of wood. It has spices, dried fruit, choclate and tabcco and is very well balancedand; soft all the way.
I was lucky to get my one for only $60 in Chicago and can only recommend to give it a try. You won't regret it.
Was bought a bottle of this for my 40th, and it did not disappoint!
Lots of dried fruit and spicy flavours in this one. Marvellous!
One of my favourite rum's to date, premium dark rum with treacle, raisins and caramel that is smooth to drink straight. A splash on a good vanilla ice cream creates sex sounds in your mouth... fantastic mixed with ginger and lime, but no point in wasting it.
I think I would have to agree with others, it does better after a little time to breathe, allowing it to bring out its full character.
