Goslings Family Reserve Old Rum
Goslings // Bermuda
First introduced to the US in 2005, Goslings Family Reserve Old Rum is the oldest release in the Goslings range. It begins with the same rum blend as the flagship Black Seal but this bottling gets further aged in oak barrels. Old Rum is intended to be a "sipping rum" served as you would a cognac or single malt scotch. Bottle presentation includes a handmade label, wax seal and a straw-filled wooden box.
Dark RumAKA Black Rum. Usually aged (but not always) and has additional caramel-coloring added to provide the dark/black color. Some are distilled from blackstrap molasses. No specific type or size barrel required for aging nor is there a set time required for aging in most countries with a few exceptions.

"On the nose, the Family Reserve offers molasses, tobacco, oak and hints of orange peel. The velvety palate continues with molasses and oak, as well as holiday spice notes of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. The warm finish is long and dry, with further smoky and spicy notes of oak and tobacco, cloves and dried fruit."
