Based on the island of Bermuda, the Gosling family has remained a steadfast producer of award-winning rums for over seven generations. This fall, Goslings introduces Papa Seal Single Barrel Bermuda Rum, an ultra-rare spirit aged for over 15 years in hand-selected bourbon barrels. Only about 2,592 bottles from 12 barrels of this premium single barrel rum will be available for $199 at select stores throughout the United States
Papa Seal Single Barrel Bermuda Rum is pot and column distilled from molasses, blended, and then aged in once-used bourbon barrels with a medium char. The humid, salty air of Bermuda provides an ideal environment for aging; guaranteeing superior, balanced flavors. From barrel to barrel, the liquid features slight flavor variations, with notes of spice, leather, banana, caramel, molasses and a mellow, elegant finish. Each bottle features the barrel number, bottle number, and bottling date hand-written on its label, while the name of the store it was acquired from is printed on the neck label. All bottles are housed in an elegant display box, complete with a slide-out tray, open view window, and satin finish foil label.
"Our obsession has always been with crafting the finest rums possible, not the most rums,” explains E. Malcolm Gosling, seventh-generation patriarch and CEO of Goslings International Limited. “With that mantra in mind, we proudly offer Papa Seal Single Barrel Bermuda Rum –'the father of all rums’ to our celebrated product line. We hope that dedicated Goslings drinkers and newcomers to super premium rum will have the opportunity to enjoy this special spirit.”
