Thumbs up

Hopefully no injuries on your fall.
The reality is that while I truely enjoy the great sippers and even the sevens and eights, for ten years I have become a collectors of primarly the dark rums with aging. The collection is now in the seven hundreds and trading can be more cost effective. I personally don't care for most of the Appleton line but have all but the 250 Anna. edition. It's really that simple. Reseach has shown that there were 6000 appleton to 3000 mt gays and fortunatly both are numbered. The 30 year was a disapointment in that aspect from a collectors viewpoint. We will never know the true number distributed.
I have more than a hundred bottles of collectable and consumable if you chose, rums for trade or possible sale.
I share these finds with several others of the same bent. If you want to contact me personally and have some stock available for trade, feel free to do so.

Fair enough then I wish you the best of luck on your trade offer for the Appleton 250th

I'll keep you in mind when I'm in the market for a more rare variety of rum, you're not far from me down the coast.

If you're in love with the Appleton 250 then any trade is worth it. That said I'd say take a moment of pause to be sure......cause once that Tricentennial ships I can't I imagine you'll find another bottle LOL
I just sold a bottle or Tri for 800 to a collector. I now have just a few others besides the Appleton Collection I have the 20anos Santiago de cuba that I need to move.

Does anyone have a bottle of the Appleton 250 anniversary bottle for sale? It's one of the last bottles I need for my collection. If so message me.

Thanks~

Proud to say that I have aquired three bottles of the 250 anniversary bottles. Aquired =paid alot, but I'm very happy to have them. I just returned from Jamaica and did the Appleton rum tour. Speaking with the tour guide, Appleton is actually looking to buy back some 250 bottles to have for display....it's that hard to find!
