Fantastic selection! How did the tasting event go? Sounds like a lot of fun!

I've convinced my girlfriend to get me a bottle of Rhum Barbancourt 15 year Reserve du Domaine for Christmas. She actually bought it at the weekend, but says I cannot have it until Christmas Day! I'm looking forward to it because I've never tried this rum before and I really love the 5 star!

This annual free tasting event presents a selection of the finest rums available in South Florida, with special prices only available at the tasting. More than 150 rum enthusiasts crowded into Sunset Corners store to try these 19 great rums. It was a resounding success with many cases going out the door that evening. The biggest problem was deciding which rums to choose.

As predicted, the new Atlantico was a best seller, as well as the El Dorado 15, Diplomatico RE, Zacapa 23 and the new Zaya.
