Gosling's Family Reserve Bottling Note

An exceptional expression from the Gosling's range. Family Reserve was once produced exclusively for members of the Gosling family (as the name suggest), but they have since decided to share this fantastic top quality rum from Bermuda. Each bottle is hand labelled, dipped in wax, packed into boxes, stamped, put in the post box, you'll even hand pour it into your glass... This corking rum was given a Double Gold Medal at the 2005 San Francisco World Spirit Competition.

Gosling's Family Reserve Reviews

Thick and Tasty

If i fancy a drop of dark rum, I love the odd glass of this as a change to navy rum like pussers, but be warned it has quite a sweet thick and rich caramel and toffee taste packed with flavour. I find just the odd glass is enough and wouldn't want to drink it all night, as the pleasure wanes a little after a glass or two, so it would be a waste to just gulp it down, no matter how moreish you think it is.

Noice, but also probably made with black magic.

Spiced, very fruity, but like... dried fruit. Not Minute Maid Raisins dried fruit. Dried fruit that you get from some fancy boutique that's dark and syrupy with thick droplets of sugary juice inside the packet. Primordial dried fruit. Definitely will put a hex on you if you don't buy it. Probably best to avoid and buy a bottle.

Better than expected!

Wow, I bought this on the flash sale, I really enjoyed the story, the bottle design and reviews of this rum, so gave it a try, really amazing stuff, dark dark rum I think the colour it. The rum itself is so good

Nose: rich creamy, strong fresh coffee, sweet, molasses, dark chocolate, Christmas spices, bandy in the back ground

Palate: more of the same, sweet and rich and smooth, black coffee and dark chocolate very easy to drink no burn really,

I really like this rum! it’s amazing stuff and comes with a really nice display box with there story, very good

Smooth, fruity a bit spicy. Quite interesting

Reminds me of sherry when opened but much better to drink. I put an ice cube in a glass and pour rum just so the cube is covered, wait short time and then enjoy. My special time rum

Reminds me of sherry when first opening, I put an ice cube in a glass before pouring this lovely smooth rum to just above the ice. Leave for a few minutes before savouring.

Alcoholic treacle toffee

If you have a sweet tooth this is for you. its dark, rich, sweet, smooth and far too easy to drink. before i knew it half the bottle was gone. it has a fantastic nose and mouthfeel & a definate 5/5 for me, and although id like to see it a bit stronger, will certainly buy it again
