In the 1850s, after much experimental blending, a distinctive black rum was offered for sale. Smooth and flavourful, at first it was simply called "Old Rum" and until the First World War, it was sold straight from the barrel. Eventually it was sold in Champagne bottles from Naval officer's Mess with corks 'sealed' in black wax.
Goslings Family Reserve Old Rum is smooth and elegant . Moves comfortably in the company of the finest XO cognacs
Appearance: Deep dark mahogany
Nose: Deep, intricate variety of flavours such as leather, chocolate and hint of citrus
Palate: Subtle, complex, nuances of vanilla, stewed fruit, a touch of cigar box and leather. Finish is slow, lingering, and mellow with hints of spice perfectly balanced by just the right amount of oak aging
Serve suggestion The ultimate sipping rum!
