Default How you know you have good friends!

In August I got married and received the following. I was told later that they bought it on their honeymoon months ago, and had to wait to give it to me/us.





I haven't had the Reserve....yet!

Oh, they also told me they should have waited to by the rum set, because they found one with the 21 year later at the airport =)

It seems there's something positive about getting married after all

Congrads, Im still learning the extra. At first I was disappointed but as time goes on I can taste more of the pot still in it. Some odd orange notes to it too along with a nice brown sugar taste. Enjoy, I have not had the reserve yet but would assume good things.
