November 30, 2021 | 0 Comments

Gosling’s Limited is getting set to release its latest batch of Papa Seal Single Barrel Bermuda Rum – “an extremely rare release that pays homage to the brand’s time-tested traditions.”

A spokesperson said, “Papa Seal Single Barrel Bermuda Rum is an extremely rare release that pays homage to the brand’s time-tested traditions. A family-owned business for eight generations, Goslings Rum has remained committed to honouring blending and aging techniques that have been passed down for over 165 years.

“On December 1st at 9AM [AST], Papa Seal Single Barrel Bermuda Rum 2021 bottling will be available for purchase in Bermuda exclusively from Gosling’s Limited website.

“Bottles of Papa Seal Rum will retail at $189 for a 750ml bottle. Also offered is the Ultimate Rum Package; a bottle of Papa Seal Rum and a bottle Goslings Family Reserve Old Rum for $250.

“Considered the ‘Father of all Rums,’ Papa Seal 2021 is blended from pot and column distilled rums ranging between 10 and 21 years aged in hand-selected, once-used bourbon barrels with medium char. Each blend is married in American White Oak and aged for an additional two years in Bermuda’s humid, salty air, guaranteeing more balanced and intricate flavours.

“Each barrel is then filtered and bottled independently at 41.5% alc/vol [83]. While the flavour will vary slightly from barrel to barrel, drinkers can expect a lavish yet mellow palate with hints of caramel, spice, vanilla, and dried fruit, with a clean and well-balanced finish that lingers in the mouth. This prized rum is best enjoyed neat at room temperature or over a quality ice cube.

“Papa Seal was released in 2018 with an initial bottling of 12 barrels, Barrel number 1 was reserved for sale exclusively in Bermuda. To date Gosling’s has bottled 39 barrels of Papa Seal and small quantities of Papa Seal have shipped the Rum all over the world. The 2021 Bermuda release consists of 3 barrels, 37, 38 and 39. Each barrel yields around 200 bottles.”

E. Malcolm Gosling, seventh-generation rum maker and CEO of Goslings International Limited, said, “Goslings Papa Seal is one of only a handful of single barrel rums currently on the market.

“What makes Papa Seal so unique is the sophisticated, elegant tasting experience it delivers. Sip it in the same way as a fine whiskey or cognac. The first release of Papa Seal was lauded as 2019 Rum of the Year by the Caribbean Journal, and we anticipate that this even more remarkable bottling will receive additional accolades from rum experts.”

The spokesperson said, “Goslings Limited and The Market Place Group are teaming up again to offer consumers a chance to win one of 5 bottles of Papa Seal Rum and a behind the scenes tour of Goslings production facility in Hamilton.

“If you ever watched Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a kid, you probably daydreamed about walking in Charlie’s fortunate shoes after he scored the golden ticket that led him to a euphoric land of sweets. Now Rum lovers have the chance to be one of 5 lucky winners who will get the chance to see behind the scenes of Goslings production facility in Hamilton and tour and tasting with Goslings Brand Director.
