Recommendable to most
Dosage: 10-15 gr/L
This rum is not too sweet. Reminds me of Zaya 12 (cocoa and spice).
It's quite rich. I get cocoa, dry fruits and herbs in the nose. There is also the burned sugar and mandarine. Aromas are from a column still, but the combination is not bad.
The taste goes also in that direction. I get burned sugar, tannins, dry fruits (I have mandarine and peaches here). In the end some caramel, cocoa and cloves.
The finish is spicy, again tannins, dry fruits and caramel with cocoa.
It's a nice Christmas rum on the cocoa sind. Would rate it with 76 points.
Smell: cocoa, dry fruits, herbs, burned sugar, mandarine, some spices, some barrel (oak).
Taste: burned sugar, tannins, dry fruits (mandarin, peach), caramel, cocoa, cloves
Finish: spice, some tannins, cocoa, dark chocolate, spices, oak and earth
Value (60€): 2/5
i really like this, but again another rum i wish had been sweetened less and presented at 90 proof. lovely treacle, caramel, and brown butter notes in nose and taste. really want this to be better, so much potential. for the price you can do a lot better. if they could fix the price or the proof, i could see this as a 9....
...the bottle is the best about it, like the champagne bottle look, even though there are far fancier and more costly looking bottles.
Well, the rum did not smell good at all, meaning so lush and boring...unfortunately the taste as well...I did not even wanted to finish the nosing glass,...
So happy I did not buy a bottle before a tasting.
Due to the fact, that it is a nice bottle and premium rum from Gosling's I rate it a 5.0.
A buddy picked up a bottle of this and he and some friends went pirate on its ass and finished the bottle ... “ why is the alway gone “” so he picked up another bottle to bring home , to my luck I got to sample said bottle my buddy is smitten with this one and loves the absolute smoothness of it I’m kinda of it’s a very good rum but not my bottle thanks
But as the title says numbers matter as these are numbered by year and cask so not every bottle will taste the exact same
Now he picked up for $65 cdn so not a bad price for a top notch drinker 👍
"Sipped the Family Reserve is initially very sweet. On the tongue, especially you get sweet caramel and a chocolate mouthful initially."
