Looking for a nice gold/dark aged rum without the whiskey taste. New to the rum game, but loving every sip. Cheers'

Try a bottle of Denizen Merchant Reserve. You can also try a Barnacle 8 or 12 year but they can be a little on the sweet side.

Most aged spirits use ex bourbon barrels because they're that much cheaper and accessable. I would look out for sherry, madiera or cognac cask rums. Alternatively go for the sweeter rums with added sugar - they tend not to carry so much of the bourbon cask influence.
