lew im with you all the way. I love the black seal but so far its a one dimensional rum but it might be good in other stuff I haven't tried yet. Maybe in cooking? Anyways that one dimension is dark n stormy's which it is the only rum that I use for them. As for the family reserve it is like a more ellegant black seal. I had it at a casino at our office holiday party (boss was buying so had to make it count) and although i couldn't appreciate the color with the bad casino lighting and my smell was corrupted as well I found the same smoky dried fruit taste and found it very pleasure able. Best this about the whole experience was that I found that it paired with my steak which was lightly charred perfectly. I consider the packaging the best in the industry. I know you can't judge a book by its cover by the attempt in this case shows some class.
