Default Hi

Hi I am 23. Live in Beech Grove (South-East side of Indy).
If anyone know any good places to purchase rum in Central Indiana, Please let me know.

I was introduced to Blackbeard's and Tortuga rum cake's around age 11.

Didn't discover rum as something to drink and enjoy until I was a senior in high school.

The first bottles I purchased when I was 21 was Malibu Pineapple and Appleton Estate V/X.

Though in those two years I switched from Malibu to Cruzan for flavored rums.
I have stuck with Appleton though, currently sipping on Extra 12yr. I would like to start trying different rums.

Welcome to the forums. I'm glad you waited until you were 21 to buy alcohol which is the legal age in your state. I'm working on a list of stores in Indiana where you can find a better than average selection of rum. Unfortunately all good things take time. Stay tuned and your patience will be rewarded.
