Yes there are two very different Matusalem rums. The Cuban one and one blended and bottled in the DR, which is heavily flavored with vanilla and bears what I consider to be a very misleading label featuring a 10 or 15 Solera Blender claim. I have seen too many US liquor stores claiming that this was 10 or 15 years old and because of all the references to Cuba that this was made in Cuba - under a special concession from Washington.

The Cuban Matusalem is sold in Cuba but also available in St Maarten and other free ports in the Caribbean.

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