Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
My purveyor sells this for just over $50.00 which makes this an excellent rum. At the estimated $86 it's still an excellent rum but lacking in a few things. First is the ABV, I would really like to try it at 42-43% rather than 40. Another thing would be the packaging. I really do not need a wooden box with a plexiglass slip front and a rope handle. Extra expense that just gets tossed out.
Whats inside the bottle is really good stuff. Tons of wood and the spit of residual bourbon. Big nose that invites perpetual sniffing. Not overly sugary which is always a good thing with aged rums. Maybe a tad thin on the tongue which is one of the reasons I'de like to see this less diluted.
If you find the likes of Centenario 25 too sweet as I do and your looking for an aged sipping rum, if the price is right Gosling's Old Rum is a great choice to try at least once.
Der Rum besticht durch seinen sehr aussergewöhnlichen Rauch- und Karamellgeschmack. Etwas herb, zu einer kräftigen Zigarre passt er ganz gut.
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.
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 !
Very expensive, and a spectacular presentation, but hot, harsh, and bitterly oaky. Not worth the price at all.
"Sipped the Family Reserve is initially very sweet. On the tongue, especially you get sweet caramel and a chocolate mouthful initially."
