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.

The bottle with the box is super nice! Exclusive touch! You need to let it brieth for at least 20 minutes to become better. The taste us peppar and I also feel the bitternes that I have not felt before. Should be in the coolection and especially testing different Rum products.

Good rum but nothing special. Gosling delivers a solid rum that I rather mix than drink straight.

You have to make sure you let it air before you drink it makes a big difference.

Moc dobré pití pro chvíle pohody v netradiční lahvi.

Ganska mycket spritsmak, svårt att sätta fingret på smaken, ek, ganska mycket tillochmed, fruktig på nåt vis, god smak men lite spretigt och glappt mellan sprit och smak.

Was hoping for more, this is to spicy for a rhum, something added ?

This is an interesting rum, which smells of charred wood, tobacco, spice, molasses, and salted chocolate. Taste is more dry than sweet, so if you're ok with that, then you might enjoy this more than I do.

j'aime beaucoup son caractère, sa force sa couleur limite acajou...
une bonne persistance en bouche, boisé, épicé...
mais un peu trop sucré.

Un rhum bien gourmand, très chocolat avec une belle robe et beaucoup de corps. C'est le digestif parfait et je trouve le rapport Q/P plutôt intéressant !

Sugar: 26 gpl. This is a sweet dark rum. In the glass it smells like Chocolate, cherries, vanilla, and oak and it tastes that way as well. It's very smooth with a bit of a bite at first but that goes away quickly and the rum goes down quite easily. It doesn't have a long finish and has a moderate after burn. It is quite enjoyable and is a big step up from the other Gosling rums. Mixing this rum would be a waste as it already has a bit of Cola taste in it. Not sure if it is worth the price tag in terms of a repurchasing. I liked it, but didn't like it enough to buy a second bottle right away. I give this an 7 for taste and it has the potential to be a 8 if you give points for the packaging.

Very expensive, and a spectacular presentation, but hot, harsh, and bitterly oaky. Not worth the price at all.

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

Meget fyldig og rig med en kompleksitet der bliver ved med at give. Det er en super top rom.
Absolut et genkøb.
