When I was in Nassau recently they were shipping out the last of the rum before finally closing the doors next month. The closest I got to the rum was watching the tanker trucks full of rum driving through the main gate to the dock, where the rum is shipped from. I think the reason it was produced in Nassau was because of the very strict ageing laws in Puerto Rico that to do not economically encourage extended ageing of their rums. No "topping up" is allowed either, which is allowed in many countries. I guess we will have to wait and see how it all ends up, but these guys have being making rum for almost 150 years in many countries, so I'm sure they have it all figured out!!!
The old "Product of the Bahamas" bottles may be worth collecting though.
