Default Buying rum in Trinidad

Hello folks. I have a workmate visiting Trinidad next week and she's willing to lug me back a bottle.

What can I get there, that is unobtainable or rare here in USA? Does anyone know if stuff like English Harbour 25 can be found in Trinidad?

I don't want to put her through the trouble and inconvenience just to save a few dollars on a bottle i can get here.

Suggestions? Thanks!

I'd suggest you go with local Trini hooch that isn't for export (and try for the high end from Angostura or any other local distiller).

Honestly, though, the only way to answer your question is to know what you have readily available.
