and the bottlings that went on market this month in Germany
are . . . of 450 / cask . . of 15

seems the casks are getting larger in size and numbers ;-)
Huh! Yes, all three of mine are out of 320. It would be good to get an explanation.

I am also very eager to get a hold of the new Guyana.

Well I've bought it today! what I've been reading as the most common liked/loved rum!

I thought to myself (as it is very expensive here in Canada).. why not go for the best of the best.. the top and if that doesn't satisfy me, hopes for finding a Rum I can enjoy Neat will be flushed down the drain.

None fit my gentle tastebuds so far, many have a nice taste but gets nasty once in the throat.

Part of me hope I don't like it and will have to let go spending and finding the RUM for me As Is.. and also because I can't afford to buy another one like this one.

My most recent Rum purchase is.. Ron Zacapa Centenario 23.

Smells good but so does Capt. Morgan Private Stock.. I'll try it tonight!

thought I would try a bottle of RedRum for summer cocktails. Not the best by any means, but still a very decent cocktail mixer.

In New Brunswick for a day; I jumped to the occasion and got the last two bottles available in the province of Plantation Nicaragua.

Really? In Victoria? My bottle brought back from abroad is rapidly dwindling... I'll be in Victoria in two weeks so I'll have to grab some more.
