Default Greetings from Belgium

Hi all,

and greetings from sunny Belgium. As a born Belgian I was longtime preoccupied with our local heritage of quality beers, until one day I wound up discovering Central America and all its exotic delicacies.
I started of pretty high on the ladder with Flor de Caсa (7yrs => 12yrs => 18yrs) while traveling through Panama, CR and ofcourse Nicaragua. I continued my explorations with bottles of Barcelу (Gran Aсejo or Imperial) in the Dominican Republic and even learned to cook with it.
When later, after returning home and finishing my secret stash of rum(which I carried in my backpack during the entire trip), I had a hard time finding interesting rum without driving for hours or importing it via the net.
A year went by of drinking low quality or overpriced rum, during which I started to work in the e-commerce department of a DIY-chain.
Thanks to this working experience I decided to open my very own online shop with the labels I had discovered hitherto ( ) as I figured that the worst thing that could happen, was me ending up with a huge rum collection.

Here are some rum pictures I took on my travels, hope you like them and see you all on the forum:

Interesting story. Pretty decent hero shots. Sounds as if something snuck by customs?
