Top reviews for Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum:

— Just an amazing sipping rum. It is complex yet drinks smooth and easy. This tastes like more of a cognac that what one would expect from a rum.

— It really is the best!!! Perfect by itself or in a Dark & Stormy!!!! You can not beat the smoothness of this great spirit!!

— Unquestionably my favorite rum of all time. It tastes like you are drinking an oak barrel with a hint of sweetness. So smooth, and so rich. I'm actually sipping some right now.

Wow, truly the best rum I’ve had. Very smooth and has great depth of flavor!
 
Scott
Scott,
Very nice. Initial blast of oak, cane sugar and molasses in the nose. Up front more molasses with lots of fruit in the middle and a strong oak finish. Very smooth throughout with a bit of a bitter finish. I’m sure it would be good with ginger beer. We had a bottle of Cock and Bull ready, but didn’t want to dilute the depth of this fine spirit.
