The rum you are looking for isn't imported to the US. Sorry to say. The good news is that things are getting better in the windy city. There is a growing number of boutique stores in the Chicago area that are recognizing sugar cane spirits.

On another note, in 1997, there were 7 rum labels on the shelf at what was then Sam's, which was the largest liquor store in the US at the time. There were were 2 Bacardi, 1 Mount Gay, 1 Lemon Hart gold rum, 1 Appleton, 1 Myers's and one Beenleigh white rum from Australia. I wish I had taken a picture at the time but I didn't have a camera, or a phone at the time.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
