Default Holiday Wish List 2007

The holiday season is approaching and I'm getting more email requests than I can answer about what rum to buy that special man or woman. I'd like to help Santa Claus and his helpers by asking you to post some ideas of what you would like to receive this year from the person that makes you so happy all year long.

To be as helpful as possible to that special person who might be reading this thread, please update your profile to include your location since many rums aren't available everywhere.

Mr. Claus,

Pretty please put a bottle of Vizcaya VXOP in my stocking instead of coal like last year. I'll be good, I promise.

Dear Santa or the Hanukkah Armadillo,

I would love my Pyrat Cask or Angostura 1824!

I'd like the county to give me final approval for my distillery building since the equipment is going to ship soon!

Dear Santa,
Nothing serious. Just one bottle of 33 year old La Favorite.

I'm not stuck on any one brand. I'm always happy to receive rum, whether it's an old favorite or something new and interesting. I do prefer dark rums though.

I guess if someone asked me for a list it would contain the following rums I've yet to try (in no particular order):

Cruzan Diamond Estate
El Dorado 15 or 21 Yr. Old
Santa Teresa 1796
Appleton Estate 21 Yr. or XO
10 Cane Rum
Ron Matusalem Gran Reserva
Gosling Black Seal or Old Rum
Rhum Barbancourt 8 or 15 Yr. Old
Depaz Blue Cane Rhum

I'd probably just point to my rum shelf and say "If it isn't on that list and it's not named "Captain" or "Bacardi" and isn't some flavored syrup, then bring it on in!"
