I picked up a bottle of Picaroon Gold the other day. I mainly got it because it's a local distillery and this is the first time I've seen their products. It's pretty good to me. I'll be watching for their aged rum, Picaroon Dark, and grab that if I see it.

I've noticed R.L. Seale 10 year showing up a lot in various posts. I figured I'd give it a shot. So just came back from a lunchtime trip to Total Wine. Picked up a bottle of Seale 10 year and 896 8 year.

J Wray Jamaica Gold for a sipper whilst in Vancouver/Victoria. Surprisingly good considering how cheap it was. Didn't last long either dammit.
Brought home Rum Malecon 10 year (or Anos I guess).

No. It was at a high end liquor store at the far end of False Creek, whose name I'll probably remember tomorrow. Same place I bought the Malecon. Ah, what a marvel the internet is. It was the Legacy Liquor Store, in a development that I believe was once housing for the Olympics.

OK. Thanks. I'm in transit to Asia once every 4 or 5 years at the Vancouver airport. About all they have of interest to me is Appleton 12.

If you happen to transit Calgary for any reason, they've got a really good liquor store INSIDE the secure area. Which means you can take your purchase in your carry-on. There's a related store before security that has the same stuff.

Unique in my experience.

Bought an Appleton "Signature Blend" in the tiny Atlin liquor store. It was the most exotic (or the least common) rum on the shelf. Turns out to be not bad sippin'.
Meanwhile I drank up all my orange label Diplomatico Reserva thinking I could replace it at the Whitehorse store. The bastards discontinued it. Guess I'd better stock up on the green label Reserva Exclusiva before they do something stupid about it.
