Darn I will be in SoCal from the 19th to the 26th but will be flying out that morning...wish I could have made it. Hopefully I will be able to make next years. Regardless I will be stopping by to pick up a few hard to find rums. Hope to say hi to you, Forrest!

We just got the whole Rhum JM Line, The whole Plantation line up will be there, and El Dorado 5 and Golden Rum Cream were added (they used all of 21 at Ed's tasting, i guess )

When the list is dialed i'll post it.

We may cut some stuff to make room....

I wish I had known about this before I committed to be in Chicago this weekend, I'd like to meet the people attending almost as much as to taste some of these rums again, almost.

But the best part of this tasting is that you'll be able to go around the corner to Hi Times and buy almost everything you taste, which is a rare in this industry. On the other hand, if you're planning on buying some of your favorites, go early.

Thank you for the kind words Ed, we are sorry that you were previously committed also (but have fun, there will be others-- and you will always be an honored guest)!!

On the purchasing tip... there will be a 15% discount on everything the day of the tasting, which i am not sure if i have mentioned....
