Of late I've picked up Appleton Extra, Koko Kanu, Pusser's, Smith & Cross and Ron de Jeremy Spiced! Was also lucky enough to receive Goslings Old Rum from my wife for Christmas. Also been very lucky to receive Botran 1893 and Blanca plus a sample bottle of Old Grog! Its gonna be a good year!

It was available here in Ontario this summer for a while and regrettably, I didn't take advantage.

I don't think you can get it anywhere in the USA.

Came home from the south with ED 15 and Zaya Gran Reserva. It's a good life.

I saw an entire shelf at two different shops in Miami Beach. One on Washington and Fifth and another near 10th and Washington. I literally almost bought every bottle there as I, too thought that it wasn't available here. I got a guy calling me back from a place up in Tampa. If I get any other info I will post it. I just got a few bottles of Ron Barillito 3 star which is also quite hard to find but obviously doesn't have embargo issues.

Keep in mind that if you are finding Havana Club in the states, it is a Bacardi product and not a product of Cuba.

I read recently that Bacardi is expanding distribution of Havana Club beyond just Florida. Has anyone tried it yet? What's it like? How much $ ?
