Default new rums from Venezuela

Diplomatico released a few months ago a 1997 Single Vintage rum . This rum has been aged for 14 years in oak barrels plus another year in sherry casks and comes in a beautiful bottle at 43% alc.

Carupano released an XO Antigua reserva, limited to 2000 bottles per year.

Just bought it a week ago at www.licoresmundiales.com along with the Carupano Legendario. The duty free at the airport had both rums as well for less price. I guess I will open the bottles in fall.

Which airport was that, exactly, Thomas? My friends in Venezuela (living at Isala de Magarita) have been trying to find the Carupano XO and Legendario with no luck.

I have seen both rums at the Caracas Airport duty free shop back in May, but perhaps they are sold out by now. A safer bet is to try licores mundiales in Caracas. I actually called them up to put the rums I bought aside.

I think Venezuela rums are beautiful along with their ladies.
