Default Mount Gay 1703

I have fairly reliable information that Mount Gay extra extra old, labeled 1703 (the year the distillery started) will debut at Rum Renaissance Festival in Miami in May. The line forms behind me.

Only problem with being 1st in line is that it means you have everyone behind you to stab you in the back. Now Im not saying any of us would...but we do like rum, we do have pirate tendencies, and we have other friends
Only kidding, snatch up a bottle of it and please tell us what you think Robert. Sounds like Miami is going to be huge.

And that won't be the the only rum to debut in Miami.

I'm glad to Rob is up to his usual creative self. I'm excited after meeting with
Rob and Robin at the Shore Club and checking out the venue for the Miami Rum experience in May. This means that i'll have to drive and bring the suburban to carry all the booty debuting.
I think I might have to go into training!

Any details that surface prior to May would be much appreciated. Of course.

Bob, just grab a bottle, take a swig, and pass it back to those of us behind you in line. And I am sure we will be able to purchase many of the rums available in Miami?

Hank, we're working with local retailers to ensure that you can order the rums you taste at the Renaissance festival, on site or online.

Excellent. I know I will taste a few new ones that I will want to add to my shelf. Thanks, Robert.
