Nice grab. My recent find was also the "back of the store, dust covered selection" as well. Turns out the store had more in the back. Fan-tas-tic.

Looking around can really pay some dividends if you know what you're looking for.

We just received a shipment of bottles in a giftbox that looks like two antique books on the outside with a map on the inside. The number of the bottle I just opened is 929492. Trying to decide if I should buy one or not. I'm not sure I have room left.

I feel that my previous post about Patron "not having a link for Pyrat" should be ameded to say: Check out Patron's website and the Pyrat link. Make sure you have volume up on your speakers to get the full effect. Their marketing people put together a nice bit of info and entertainment. Also a few recipes as well.

Although I would still love the return of the "old stuff", I think they have done a better job on marketing the current version (based upon their website link).

I have been looking for the older Planters Gold and have done an internet search. I have found a few listings but emails have came back with the bottle and name has not been updated. I surprised to learn it was changed in 05. I have found some of the old Zaya. Can you find the older blends in the Country that the rum originates from?

You're on track. If you're new to this thread SMS is St Maarten Spirits. Martin Crowley, the principal behind Patron decided to make a rum in the mid 90s, I believe the first shipments landed in the US in 95. He ended up basing his company in Anguilla, about 12 miles from St Maarten, a Dutch trading island in the Caribbean but spent most of his time in the US.

While Martin was selling a lot of tequila under the Patron name he saw bartenders using sweet orange liqueurs in margaritas and came up with a rum-based orange liqueur that he hoped would gain attention.

On his death in April 2003, his company changed considerably.

Any more sightings of the "old" Planters Gold Pyrat in the wild?

I havent found any old XO's.... but I found the mother load of old Pistols!! They had them priced at 14.99... so I bought a few and the difference between the old and new Pistol Rum is VERY evident!
