Gosling's Family Reserve Old rum is crafted in Bermuda from the same blend as Gosling Black Seal but is aged longer in dark barrels. Each bottle is hand-labelled and numbered.
Tasted it in a restaurant after the meal. Liked it. Colour cherry-like and some "fruit" to it (lightly). Spicy and smooth as a good old rhum. Nothing outstanding however.
A nice rich dark rum, with a heavy burnt sugar aroma and taste. For the price it is smooth but not characteristic of anything, just burnt sugar.
Awsome wax sealed bottle, the taste is pretty awsome as well. Mine came in a wooden box packed with straw around the bottle.
As Goslings is predominantly used to set fire to or in a Dark & Stormy, my expectations were very high. But I was pleasantly surprised by this rum which has a good complexity, and a relatively smooth, sweet finish.
