Bermudas Goslings rum takes home top rum award
Bermudas own Goslings Rum has been named the rum of the year by Caribbean Journal.
The online publications Rum Journal is said to have travelled across the Caribbean region, including Barbados, Martinique, the Dominican Republic and Guyana sampling the best cane spirits and rum drinks. This is the inagurual year of the Rum Awards.
Winners were named in seven categories but Goslings took home the top prize of 2012s best rum.
The winner was a classic, one that has been with us since time immemorial (at least it seems that way): Bermudas Goslings Old Rum, said Caribbean Journal. Bottled in a champagne bottle, the same way sailors used to drink Goslings in the Bermuda of yore, sealed with wax, Old Rum continues to be the standard for aged rum. It is the most complete rum in the world — flavourful, balanced, complex, sweet but not too sweet. And its our 2012 Rum of the Year.
The runner-up for best rum went to Dos Maderas PX 5+5, a rum that is aged for five years in the Caribbean and then sent to Spain to be aged in sherry barrels. Puerto Ricos Don Q Gran Añejo snagged the third place prize.
