It's Not the Size of the Boat. It's the Freedom of the Spirit.

If you're not new here, you're familiar with our feelings for 'Papa' Hemingway and a good Rum. This tipple was crafted to embottle the vigorous lust for life of the literary, travel, (and turn-up) icon. It's even co-named after the writer's legendary boat - Pilar.

A rare piece of good news from Florida, Key West actually, comes in the form of a first-ever to-be brand's annual iteration in commemoration of Ernest's extraordinary life. (We'd like to believe, by now, we're on the first-name-basis with 'the goat').

This Dark Rum is a double-solera finished knock-out with a bold flavor. The Rye Whiskey barrels and Amontillado Sherry casks add complexity to the blend of already solera-aged Rums from Panama, Barbados, Florida, Venezuela, and the Dominican Republic. The boasty juice of 43% ABV comes in a bad-a$$ decanter wrapped in leather. A nifty collector's find - we might add, but they had us at Hemingway.

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 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 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.
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.
