Default Santero Ron 12 Anos Gran Reserva

Can anyone give me some input. I have yet to try a rum from Columbia. Is this one available in the states and if it is, is it worth tracking down? Any suggestion of a rum from Columbia?

I have never tried the Santero rum, but I have tried 2 other ones:

Ron Sante Fe: Did not care for had a strong metalic after taste ...reminded me of when I was kid and bit the lead crimp sinkers on to my line...had the same metalic taste..just my opinion

Ron Viejo de Caldas 3 years: This one I loved...was very good...had a similiar taste to Old Grog...fresh fruit (banana and mango) and buttery toffee.

I have heard good things about Ron Meddelin, bit haven't tried that one yet....

It is my understanding that there is a 21 year old from Santeros also. This, along with the 12, is on my list to taste. I have not seen either of them for purchase, but I have not had the time to check on line recently. I do have the Caldas 3, it is a light bodied rum with good flavor.
Rum is the answer. What was the question?
