This could be the richest, most exquisitely-aged Rum you get to drink this year.

In 1806, James Gosling set out from England with an inventory of goods bound for America to sell. Delays ensued in route and the ship’s charter (a license to sail and conduct business) expired, so the ship docked at Bermuda to sort out the paperwork. By the time the ship was ready to continue its voyage to America, James had decided to remain. He opened up the famous Goslings storefront that remains to this day. And since his father was a Wine and Spirits merchant back home, embarking on a new venture of producing quality Rum was a natural next step. Today, Goslings Bermuda Rums are famous around the world.

Goslings Papa Seal Single Barrel Bermuda Rum is a real treat with an impeccable pedigree. Fourteen and eighteen year-old Rums are first aged independently. Then they are married and re-casked in once-used Bourbon barrels to age for ANOTHER two full years. Then each one of those special casks is bottled independently to deliver nothing but full-flavored character. It could be the richest Rum you taste this year. And the experts all agree — it was awarded "2019 Rum of the Year" by the Caribbean Journal and recognized as one of "The Very Best Rums to Try Right Now" by Maxim among many other accolades. 

Smartass Corner:
"Papa Seal" is the nickname for the patriarch of Gosling family of Rum-makers — Malcolm Gosling. This spectacular release is named for him.

Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
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.
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
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 (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
