A.H.Rise Christmas Edition 2015 could very well be some of the best Rum you will ever taste or give as a gift. 
 
A. H. Riise was a pharmacist from Denmark who resettled in the Danish West Indies—now the US Virgin Islands. Other islands had begun distilling Rum, but none in Danish-controlled areas, so good ‘ol Mr. Riise did just that and procured a warrant to supply Rum to the Danish navy. This naturally gave rise (pardon the pun) to their first core product, Danish Navy Rum. 
 
Today, A. H. Rise has changed hands, but it is still located in St. Croix where they acquire fresh molasses distillate from the famous Cruzan Distillery on Saint Thomas to age and blend in the creation of a full range of Rums, from youthful mixing Rums through super-premium sippers. 
 
Uncle Flaviar LOVES this Rum. You can only get it this time of the year and it is always in strictly limited supply. If you are a Rum aficionado, you can take just one look at that rich mahogany color and feel a tingle on the back of your neck. If you are new to Rum, that deep, red-bronze hue is like a slinky, red silk nightgown promising an evening’s delights. And A. H. Riise Christmas Edition is no tease. 
 
This is premium molasses Rum aged 20 years and finished in Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks. They call it a “Christmas Edition” not because they have added any artificial candy-cane schtick. No, they call it Christmas because those super-premium PX casks naturally bring an essence of cinnamon, clove, and orange zest to this high-end bottle of silky Rum goodness. This could very well be some of the best Rum you will ever taste … or give as a gift.

A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
