155 years seems long enough. So the deep, dark secret rum that we Goslings have enjoyed for generations is now going public. Appropriately called Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum, it is crafted from the same incomparable Bermuda blend that they use for their renowned Black Seal Rum. But, they leave it resting in oak barrels even longer, aging it until it has acquired an extra luscious, nuanced complexity much like a rare Scotch or Cognac.

Consider it the ultimate sipping rum.

A spirit this unusual deserves more than the usual bottle and label. So they lovingly take each bottle, hand label it, dip it in wax, number it, encircle it with a metal band and then place it in a straw-filled wooden box reminiscent of days past.

The Perfect Old Rum Recipe: 1 oz. - blah, blah, blah 1/2 tsp. - blah, blah 2 oz. - blah, blah, blah Dash - blah

Gosling's point? Old Rum is built to savour as it is poured. Add ice if you must, but nothing else other than a little eager anticipation.

A fantastic sipping rum. Same as the Black Seal but more mellow and less sweet...making it even better than before. It's the same thing just aged another 5-7 years in oak barrels.
