Thanks Jamie. Yea,there's a Total Wine fairly close to me, but I didn't notice the Millonario last time I was there. They're kind of spotty with there Rum inventory here. What is it running for @ Total Wine in Arizona?

I don't recall the exact price, but I seem to remember it being in the mid 20's, so not bad.

Many stores still don't give rum as much respect as other spirits, which is unfortunate. I do have to give it to TW however, they now carry El Dorado 5, 12, 15 and 21. I would appreciate it if they would get some other interesting bottles in though from time to time.

I was in The Scottsdale Costco last month and got the Millionario for about 25 dollars. It was not at TW.

I checked with the manager @ my local Costco and he did a company system search for Ron Millonario and could find no evidence of it being sold at any Costco's in SoCal. They did however have Pyrat XO in stock for $20,... for those with interest. At least it's a step up from their usual limited Bacardi and Captain Morgan rum selection.

Carried at Leukens Liquors in the Tampa/ St Pete area.

I was checking a few stores to see their different stocks and compare some prices. Could not find much info re Millonaro on the web except for a gold award along w/ zacapa 23 at a european tasting. Did not write the price since I was concentrating on others but I think it was upper 30s.

It was suprising to see some of the price variations on Zafra and Zacapa XO. Leukens carried those for $20 cheaper ($40 and $80 respectively) than other locals . Zafra and Ron Millonaro are not listed on their website.

Availability was not the issue,... it's readily available for ~$40. "rumnoob" claimed it was @ Costco for $24. A far cry from $40, making it an easy decision for a try. But unfortunately, that information turned out to be bogus.
