Default Vizcaya VXOP

Where can I find it? Be it an online retailer, or anywhere in Oregon or Washington. There has got to be someone that knows how I can get my hands on one of those delicious bottles

Welcome to the forums. There are a few online stores that sell Viscaya but I'm not sure who can or will ship to Washington and/or Oregon. I'm sure you'll find some suggestions here in the next day or so. Or check this list of online stores. Hint, on new products it's not a bad idea to contact the store and ask. Most online retailers aren't able to keep their sites up to date all the time.

Default Viscaya online

RummyPDX,

If you can't find Viscaya online, let me know. I can arrange to have a bottle shipped to you.

thank you very much. That is amazingly gracious of you.

So far I havent had any luck finding it, my brother is in california right now, so I sent him to a BevMo. (For those who dont know, its a liquor superstore.) If he doesnt have any luck I will definitely take you up on your offer.

Another option for your brother, since he's in California, is Hi-Time Winery which has a much better selection than BevMo.

Right now, on Internetwineandspirits.com, Vizcaya is selling at $46, but they are having a sale for 25% of all liquors.

Default Viscaya Is A Mystery

Viscaya VXOP is a bit of a mystery rum to me. I respect the person's palette who came up with this blend. It's different that any other rum, but it remains something of a mystery to me in terms of where it's distilled.

From the first time we saw it in the Ybor City rum competition, it turned heads. It is among the most surprising rums in tastings I've hosted in the past year or two. I've detected some variations in different batches of the product, but each is within the range of interesting and notable spirits.

I purchased my bottle at Shoppers Vineyard. They have a very acceptable price, $32.00.

However, I believe the shipping costs from New Jersey to the West Coast are prohibitive

Hi Times has Vizcaya available for $40.00

I bought my bottle from planetofwines. The first time I tried it I tasted a what I thought was a very strong cinnamon flavor almost tasted like a spiced rum to me after a few more glasses I have come to enjoy the unique flavor. Not sure what other rum I could compar ethe taste to...very unique.
