Did you mean Plantation Nicaragua 1998? Or the Jamaica 8 year old? I did not see a Jamaica 1998 on their website.

This bottling, Jamaica Old Reserve 1998, is not on their website. I had not seen it before Friday. It may be something new just arrived on the shelves. or perhaps something from some time ago that never sold. But since there was no dust on the bottles and the straw webbing is still soft and pliable, I'll say new.

Did you already mention the store you bought it from? I am curious about this rum and how to find it.

I bought this at Spec's #19 in Houston. I had a buddy at a Spec's in Austin try to order me a case but he was unsure if the one he found in their system was the one I bought.

This is a new one that is getting high accolades. It was tasted and written up in the spring edition of European Cigar Cult Journal, and was deemed excellent. If any one finds this rum on an online store, please post it!!

I found it. A five year old version of 1 Barrel. First taste: The obvious butterscotch and maple nose of the "regular blend" is overwhelmed by big oak. It's a very mature tasting rum for five years of age. My hope was taking the edge off 1 Barrel with a more mature and gentle finish, not so much a deep plunge into old wood. It's a fine rum, but I've lost the candy flavor so I'll need time to adjust my expectations.

For now, I'll call this rum 1 Big Oak Barrel.
