A fifteen year-old Belizean Rum at Cask Strength  distilled, aged, and bottled in the tropics  is worth a few drams of your time.

Windyside Spirits was founded by husband & wife combo Eric Kaye and Maura Gedid. Eric introduced Maura to fine aged Rums while they were dating and it became a shared passion. They formed Windyside Spirits in 2019 and set to importing premium single-cask Rums to support their new Holmes Cay brand. Their first stop, the famous Foursquare Distillery in Barbados where Eric and Maura struck a deal for their inaugural release. Since then they have reached out to curate the examples of Rum from all over and deliver them to the world.

The Traveller’s Liquors Distillery sits in the old town section of Belize City. Turns out that they had four casks of double-distilled, molasses based, fifteen year-old Belizean Rum just sitting there aging in their Caribbean warehouse. Holmes Cay Belize 2005 is a strictly limited edition of this found treasure bottled at 61% ABV. Rum fans will immediately recognize that those stats alone are something special and obviously in very short supply.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
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.

If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
