New England - that's in the US

Where it all began in the colonies, rum is again becoming the spirit of choice. Have you seen anything on the shelves that shouldn't be missed by others.

Default Old bottles of MGXO on Block Island

Just came back from a weekend on block island and scored 2 bottles of the MGXO at the package store there. I didn't get a great look but there could have been 2 to 4 more there. Price 42or43USD.

Come up to Ontario, we have all kinds of MGXO in the round bottle. Only $39 a bottle Canadian, a real bargain. I even bought like 5 bottles a few months ago on sale for like $35.

I am not certain why the price discrepancy as most booze is way more expensive here than in the US.

Sounds like you got a deal in Canada. That isn't going to last long.

Is there a taste difference between the old and new bottlings? I think I recall the consensus being there was that there was no difference? Just a new bottle and higher price HA!

I was in Barbados a few months back, where i went to Mount Gay. The people in the tasting bar were adamant there was no difference.

i looked at it as this, if there was no taste difference then the old bottle is cheaper. if there is a taste difference well then I get 2 bottles to compare.

How much are they selling the new bottles for down that way? Here the new MGXO are $38-42. I stocked up a few weeks back when the old bottles were still reg priced at $29.99...!
