I saw your collection in another post, very interesting, mostly premium bottles, some rums I only heard about (like Opthimus). By your list, it seems you travel a lot to Cuba, DR and Mexico (or have rum mules that go there).
My rum collection is a constantly evolving beast, currently I have around 65 bottles. My most interesting bottles, would be, apart from my Plantation Guadeloupe Single Cask, Medellin 12 years, Millonario 12 years, Mocambo 20 years and Zafra 21 years (all these bottles were bought in Florida, they're harder to find around here). None of my collection is older than 2 years. I don't usually keep bottles for collection, I open the oldest ones and go forward. I try to limit myself to 70-80$ worth of rum per month. I travel a lot, and study carefully in advance what to buy in my trips.
Selection in SAQ has improved a lot over the past few years. I work 2 minutes from the Signature store in Montreal, it's like my second office.
It's very interesting that you have a license to import, I would gladly chip in if you're looking to import a certain brand, probably a couple of bottles, as I know a couple of rummers who are interested in trying new stuff.
