Default 2020 Reddit Rum Releases

While here might be the original online rum community; Reddit has been growing in recent years as possibly the best place on in the internet to discuss rum.
Evidence of the rum subreddit being an actual community can be seen in the releases of the occasional "reddit rum" that have been going on for a while.

It's continuing in 2020 with three releases. Here's the details and a link to the original post;

XXX/Four will be a single cask rum from Fiji, distilled in 2004 and bottled at 66.8% ABV. It was distilled using a pot still at South Pacific from molasses, aged in the Philippines until 2016, finished in American oak cask #3 in England and bottled on 8th of January 2020. The yield is 214 bottles, and there is no filtering, coloring or additives of any kind. No bullshit as always.

XXX/Five will be a bottling of rum from Jamaica that is two years old and bottled at 65% ABV. It was distilled from molasses in Saint Catherine, Jamaica using a pot still, aged for 2 years in Jamaica and bottled on 1.9.2020. Chemical analysis reveals ester counts at 67.7 g/hLAA, and total volatile substance counts of 529.8 g/hLAA. The yield is 400 bottles, and there is no filtering, coloring or additives of any kind. No bullshit as always.

XXX/Six will be a bottling of rum from Mauritius, distilled in 2010 and bottled at 67.2% ABV. It was distilled from cane juice, using a column still in Mauritius,aged in oak casks in Mauritius until the start of 2018 and finished in first-fill Bourbon cask #2 in England. The yield is 260 bottles, and there is no filtering, coloring or additives of any kind. No bullshit as always.

Just had a browse through it. Its full of people who were "gifted" with something or another. Just FYI, "gift" is a feckin' noun. The verb is give. So if someone "gave" you a bottle of rum, it was "given" to you. These perversions of English drive me nuts!

According to the OED, the use of "gift" as a verb meaning to bestow as a gift has been in use since at least 1619. 400 years seems long enough to be an actual English word, no?
