At a tenner the Cockspur 5 star is a bargain!

I've found that each rum at Waitrose goes on offer every four months or so. I tend to buy a bottle of Barbancourt whenever it is on offer, same goes for the Angostura.

I believe the Havana Club they stock is the Añejo Especial.

Carbon, yes, I think it's the same. I've heard it being referred to as both "Cockspur Fine Rum" and "Cockspur 5 star".
