My esteemed Mr. Hamilton:

Thank you for creating a forum for rum lovers. My father and mother were friends with Peter Seralles when I was a child and during my college summer days I would work at their distillery rolling wooden casks to the main vat.

Now, regarding the infamous 5 star RB. I remember drinking this ghostly spirit back in the early 70s as it was the preferred elixir among my domino group. Either someone was counterfeiting the rum by slapping a 5 star label on the neck or it was real. Keep in mind that I paid a premium price for this bottle, $4.00 each. I do admit that I haven't seen a 5 star bottle since 1980.

Just thought I'd let you know.

P.S. They also manufactured Alcolado Superior 70 which was similar to rubbing alcohol with some essences for aroma. They used to rub with this anyone who came down with a fever. I don't know if they still do, I don't live in the island since 1980.
