Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Tasted it in a restaurant after the meal. Liked it. Colour cherry-like and some "fruit" to it (lightly). Spicy and smooth as a good old rhum. Nothing outstanding however.
The bottle looks great with the black wax-seal, the bottle comes in a wooden box with hay and a glass-window. The rum is very complex, dark chocolate but not too sweet. It's for the advanced connaisseur, not for beginners. Not my things
Thick and heavy. It's the chocolate stout of rum. It tastes great, but I wouldn't drink more than one or two glasses before it would become too much. Could consider it as a re-buy.
A very good dark rum with lots of complexity. It is sweet and caramel flavored while also being spicy with a woody tone. Definitely a sipping rum verses Goslings Black Seal. Fairly smooth too. This is one of the few good sipping dark rums.
Gave it an 8 just for the awesome bottle and presentation. Looking forward to tasting it and will update the rating
The packaging led me to believe that this would be an exceptionally smooth full-bodied rum. Unfortunately, I found it rather plain and a bit harsh in the end. Wish companies would spend less on packaging/marketing and more on quality of their rum
The rum isn't the most amazing or complex and you can get a lot more for your money. The bottle, black seal and box make the rum feel more special than it is. It does have a nice spice but the flavour isn't quite up to the standard of a £60 rum
This rum has a lot of flavour without the sweetness of the regular Gosling's Black Seal Rum. Ice is the only thing needed to enjoy this fine rum, but not too much!
Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum er en meget mørk og kraftig rom, både i duft og smag, som bliver den hængende.
En virkelig god super rom.
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.
One of the most interesting flavoured rums I've had. Fruity nose and a woodsy taste and slightly sour (in a nice way). Very balanced with nice spice and long pleasant finish.
Smooth and Spicy worth the money
In the nose there is a little pepper, some hints of tobacco, coffee and burnt sugar. the taste is simple sweet with spicy flavor and sweet tobacco. an must have rum in any collection
Meget fyldig og rig med en kompleksitet der bliver ved med at give. Det er en super top rom.
Absolut et genkøb.
Nothing to say about that rum that stand out of the crowd, has to be tryied...
Great color, not floral, dark brown sugar.
A nice rich dark rum, with a heavy burnt sugar aroma and taste. For the price it is smooth but not characteristic of anything, just burnt sugar.
Awsome wax sealed bottle, the taste is pretty awsome as well. Mine came in a wooden box packed with straw around the bottle.
As Goslings is predominantly used to set fire to or in a Dark & Stormy, my expectations were very high. But I was pleasantly surprised by this rum which has a good complexity, and a relatively smooth, sweet finish.
