Goslings releases ‘father of all rums’

A new, but rare rum will be released by Goslings today.

The entire output of Papa Seal rum will be restricted to 12 barrels, and of those only one has been reserved for Bermuda customers.

However, the barrel for Bermuda is extra special — because it is the first of the Papa Seal rum barrels. Bottles from the barrel will be numbered and hand-packaged in display boxes.

The rum has been hand-selected and slowly aged in single-use bourbon barrels. The company described the rum as: “Startlingly mellow with an elegant finish carrying notes of spice, leather, banana, caramel and molasses. So refined is this rum that Goslings urges owners to savour it neat or over a single cube of ice”.

Because of the limited offering, Goslings is restricting each customer to a maximum purchase of six bottles, which cost $179 each. In Bermuda, the rum will only be sold at the Goslings store on Dundonald Street.

Malcolm Gosling, president and chief executive officer of Gosling's International Limited, said: “Our obsession has always been on crafting the finest rums possible, not the most rums. With that mantra in mind, we proudly created Papa Seal ‘the father of all rums'. My only regret is that we are forced to limit the number of people who can experience it.”

Slowly aged: bottles of Goslings' new, limited edition Papa Seal rum will be numbered and hand-packaged in display boxes. In Bermuda it will only be available from the Goslings store on Dundonald Street (Photograph supplied))
