Default 2nd Generation to Ministry of Rum

Hello everyone

My father has always loved his rum and I am now getting into it.

I am looking to start young and make an epic collection of rum

My favorite rum is Goslings Black Seal, also during my wedding last week I enjoyed their family reserve bottle.

Cheers

Welcome to the forums. As a guy with a sizable rum collection, I would suggest buying two bottles when you find something that is hard to find. If you really like it you will have one bottle to keep in your collection and another to drink. If you don't like it you can give it as a gift or sell it to someone else and recover your investment.

Thats a great idea buying two bottle of rum.

The only issue I see for me right now is that

A) Rum is very expensive in British Columbia. For a bottle of Ron Zacapa 23 It is priced at 79 dollars!

B) The selection is absolute crap

C) I am not sure any way of getting more rare bottles from BC unless I leave.... well Canada.

Sounds like you need to take your wife or girlfriend on a trip and bring back some rum. Every place has challenges. I look forward to bringing some good rums to your province at affordable prices.
