Over at Corona Cigar, there are a couple of pre embargo Cuban Rums that vary in price from 3000 to 10000. I was there the other night, looking at them thinking if I was a rich man and could afford the pleasure, I might buy one, just to see what the rum tasted like. Except for one bottle, they all looked intact.
He's not just saying this for effect! I can vouch for Hank's willingness to drink the good stuff first, and share it with his friends!
