Fantastic package from Bermuda’s only rum company.
It’s very dark and the aroma is very complex with its Christmas spices, caramel and some oak. The taste is a little sharp and a lot like the aroma plus some plums, I believe.
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.
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.
Quite a unique taste, I always wondered how people got chocolate from tasting rum, but that's the first thing that I noticed with this. Nice dark mahogany colour, interesting flavours and good aroma. Top marks for presentation. Worth having.
spent a lot of time in bermuda so drinking the standard black seal rum was a very regular habit. this one takes all those flavours, mellows out the alcohol and is much richer and smoother. could drink this and only this forever
A personal favorite that I always enjoy smelling, sipping and savoring.
Like the label and webpage says, this is indeed a very well defined rum. Wonderful flavor and aroma.Everyone needs to try this one. It was especially nice served over some North Atlantic Iceberg.
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.
Very unique rum. Smells like burned sugar and fruit. This is also present in the taste. First sip was a bit harsh, but the 2nd sip onwards was really nice to sip on. My palette is not advanced enough to describe all the different flavors, but this is something special alright.
Big step up from the regular Black Seal, which is a decent mixer. Gave this one an 8, but is very close to a 9. Might upgrade after a few more glasses.
One of the best bottles. A Nice dark rhum with lots of dried fruits in the aroma.
A real sipper with taste of caramell, oak and spicy one of the best I have tasted
There are notes of sweet mixed fruit and a little bitter marmalade.
"Sipped the Family Reserve is initially very sweet. On the tongue, especially you get sweet caramel and a chocolate mouthful initially."
