Goslings Papa Seal Single Barrel Rum (700ml)
The premium rum category continues to grow at around 6% year over year. Papa Seal Single Barrel Bermuda Rum is part of that movement. This rare release pays homage to the brand’s time-tested traditions. A family-owned business for eight generations, Goslings has remained committed to honoring blending and aging techniques that have been passed down for over 165 years.
Launched as an annual release in the USA in 2018, each bottle of Papa Seal features its barrel number, bottle number, and bottling date hand-written. Each release will comprise around 1500-2500 bottles. The rum itself is a blend of column and pot still molasses rums aged in medium char bourbon barrels and reported to be anything from 8 -20 years old. Due to the nature of single barrel releases, slight variations in flavour are to be expected.
Awarded 92 Points by the Tasting Panel and named as #1 Aged Rum in the world by the Caribbean Journal.
Other reviews... "Molasses, vanilla bean and caramel all shine through on the nose, along with brown butter pound cake and caramelized bananas. The palate offers dark brown sugar with cinnamon and cloves, along with milk chocolate and more vanilla. The finish showcases resonating cola spice, with molasses and chocolate syrup. Barrel #11." 87 points - distiller.com
