Robert, the Bambarra 8 Year Old Reserve is now available and getting rave reviews, especially from me!! I'm working on a pallet of Bristol Classic Rums, so next time Robin is over we can load her up again. I guess she made it through customs OK?

Yes, Bob, she did make it through customs with some lovely rums from your well stocked shelves. Looking forward to the Bambarra 8 and we enjoy the Bristol Classics. We have a few more for you from your wish list.

I'm a big fan of the Royal Oak from Trini. I do love that overblown spiciness

I'm sure that you'll enjoy them.

We picked up a bottle of each recently as well. The light hasn't yet been tried, but the dark seems to match the MOR database description of the 43% version well.

Robert, I just picked up Bristol Spirits Classic 15. What should I expect? I can't crack the seal until I fly it home. Thanks!

Default 1 Barrel FOr Bob

To Bob in Turks And Caicos,

Our friend Ovidio Diaz dropped off a bottle of 1 barrel with your name on it. He also let me sample a new three year old version from Traveller's that's real smooth, plus a basic white and gold rum named Black Jack that were not bad for less than $8 a bottle.

Robert, I believe that another bottle of 1 Barrel is already in TheRumelir's post office, by now.
