Made from rums aged from 16 to 20 years, and appropriately called Gosling’s Family Reserve Old Rum, this rum is finished in Buffalo Trace Bourbon barrels before bottling. It’s crafted from the same incomparable Bermuda blend as the renowned Black Seal Rum. However, Gosling ages this rum it in dark barrels even longer, until it acquires an extra luscious, nuanced complexity much like a rare Scotch or Cognac. Consider it the ultimate sipping rum.
Each bottle is hand labeled, dipped it in wax, numbered, encircled it with a metal band, then placed it in a straw-filled wooden box reminiscent of days past.
"The bouquet changes dramatically within the 10-minute nosing period from a baked aroma to an earthy, spicy, woodsy aroma. The palate entry is smooth, intensely oaky, yet semisweet; at midpalate the sweetness picks up in the forms of honey and molasses. Concludes elegantly, satiny smooth in the throat, and properly bittersweet." Wine Enthusiast 92 Points
