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.
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
This is a true dark rum , well balanced smooth taste slightly sweet. MY favourite rum, even bottled like a classic.
Very nice on ice..havent had Goslings in years. My father-in law gifted me this special bottle.
Treat it lovingly, and let it rest a bit in the glass. We love the heady aroma and pleasant caramel.
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!
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.
Great bottle great packaging
Let it breath and then sip
Love this rum
"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.......
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
At the moment my favourite sipping rum. Smooth and flavourful. I prefer it it neat, no ice.
Best sipping rum I've tried to date. I get a bottle at Christmas every year.
Plenty of spice and chocolate, but so smooth and soft and not too sweet. Over ice or its own!
Smooth, sweet and a great nose. A little vanilla and fruit, with a touch of leather and wood. Perfect neat.
Un très bon rum mais pour le prix il y en a des meilleurs. Tous de même un rum qui se démarque!
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
Great strong aroma of dark sugar and a very smooth taste. Maybe a little overpriced if bought in a bar/restaurant but at £50 a bottle it's hard to beat.
Strong sipper comes in a great package a fine gift for a good friend.
Looking for a sweet dark old rum to savor with a big cigar? This one would be my choice.
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!
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.
Lots of dried fruit and spicy flavours in this one. Marvellous!
