I have had some of my best Goslings moments in Connecticut,
Mystic and Dark and Stormys. A nice combination

That is a lovely review of an interesting rum, Lew. Even at 9 in the morning, you've whet my appetite sufficiently to want to try it again after lunch.

I'm slowly trying to come to terms with this. But even with that, I'm not sure Pyrat Cask is worth its price. (Yes, I do have a bottle.)

Thanks Lew for the review. The Reserve is available in LCBO at 54$ and I'll make sure I'll grab a bottle when I'll go in Toronto at the end of the month. I like the Black Seal and can't wait to taste a premium version of it. From memory, it's the only brand I know that is sold cheaper in Canada than the States.

The prices at SAQ is almost the same as LCBO. For exemple, the Appleteon MBL is around 90$ in both and the El Dorado 5yo is around 30$ (that's CDN$).

You can check that out at www.saq.com and www.lcbo.com

The selection once was terrible, but now we are starting to see some new products like Santa Theresa 1976, Cockspur 12, La Favorite line, some Plantation. The SAQ signature alos have some high end products like the HC 15yo, L'arbre du voyageur and La Favorite cuvйe du Flibuste.

I'm dreaming of the day the selection in SAQ will be as good of High Times that Forrest and Rumdog are talking about (and as cheap too).
