Default Vizcaya Blanco

Has anyone heard anything about the release of this rum? I saw a blurb about it a couple months back but haven't heard anything since. Was this rum just a rumor or has it not reached distribution yet?

I haven't heard anything about it from the blender or the brand owner. These things take time.

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

Default Vizcaya: The Next Generation?

I know this brand and its owner intimately and if this rumor is true, it is a "black ops" project, which will be shrouded in vanity and mystique and hopefully live up to the Olympic benchmark of its original.

As I was told, the first plans were to release the 1st version of Vizcaya Blanco in june/july 2010 (if i remember right) .. which obviously didnt happen. when I was in Oliver & Oliver in august I got to taste Vizcaya Blanco 2nd formula - was a little bit sweeter. So It is not a rumor.. it really exists and it tastes excellent! Hope they release it soon

I wrote about Vizcaya Blanco already in May on - the date says august but i copied the text from an older blog of mine published in May 2010.

I can confirm the rumour too as I was with Pavol at Oliver & Oliver where we sampled a great white rum that was to be Vizcaya Blanco. They produce some great rums in their small aging facility and take the use of oak to the max.
