Default Orlando/Atlanta Rum Suppliers

Hey all,

I will be taking trips in the near future to both Atlanta and Orlando. Any good spots to pick up some quality rums while in those areas? I'm specifically looking to pick up some Zacapa rums, possibly some cheaper bottles of Pyrat XO (it's $39 here in VA, and I've heard it can be gotten far cheaper elsewhere) and possible a bottle of Atlantico if I can get some. I would also like to try and snag some El Dorado, as they only get the 5 year here in VA. I will of course entertain suggestions on other rums. Anyone got the 411 on good rum venues?

Yes, I can help guide you to the proper spots. Let me know where you are staying, this way I can look at location logistics. We might even be able to get together for a cocktail. Josephs on Sand Lake Road and Universal Blvd. will be the first stop. Send me a note.

I was just in Orlando a couple of weeks ago and found two original versions (pre Patron) of Pyrat XO sitting dusy on shelves in the old white boxes and scooped them up. They were $35 each at two different shops.

I also found 5 Zacapa 23 ANJOS (not Solara) and two Zaya Guatamala's. I'm pretty well stocked on those two items so they stayed on the shelves. It was the first time in a while I had seen either in stock. They are out there - good luck.

Do you happen to remember which shops you spotted those in? It'll be worth the trip from Tallahassee if I can get those bottles!

Sailor 22, I am curious also as to where you found them. Can you send me a note also?
I know where to find them, I was just curious to see if you went somewhere I do not know, or if there is new inventory, or old inventory I am not aware of. I don't have as much time as I used to look around in all the different shops, and I like to help people when they visit.

Don't leave me out! I'd like to know where to get the goods as well!

It's no secret - I just didn't want to bore anyone. I already got what I wanted

The Pyrat's were in liquor stores on 192 - tourist central. Didn't see much else of interest in them that was Rum related.

If I remember correctly I saw the Zaya and Zacapa (along with a few other interesting Rums) in liquor stores on University. They weren't all in one store, The Zaya Guatamala was hiding behind some newer Trini so do a search of the shelf - I left them behind the newer versions..
