Default El Dorado 5 Year $8.99?????

The conflated Capn Jimbo/Bill reports on his site that El Dorado 5 Year is being sold at $8.99 a 750ml. Does anyone know where? I'd email him, but, I don't want to read another treatise about 1 Barrel!

That sounds like a Total Wine and Spirits loss-leader in South Florida.

Or maybe a close-out. Total Wine and Spirits seems to have morphed into Total Wines and More. I can't find any El Dorado products on their on-line store. Their Fort Lauderdale store has a lot of the usual and not much in the way of premium rums.

Capn Jimbo/Socrates/Bill's posting on his forum/blog on this rum dates back to December of last year.

Does anyone think he bought more than one bottle?

I was probably wrong calling them Total Wines and More.

That sounds about right. I don't think El Dorado wanted that product being used to lure people into a store in Florida at that price, which is less than the wholesale price in every other state. I'm told they made a special purchase but DDL won't be doing that again.

Has to be. It costs me more than that, and I buy it directly from Demerara.

If you see ED 5-yr for $8.99 buy as much of it as your income will allow. That is a complete steal.
