Talking Great Site!

Who would have thunk it? A site dedicated to the nector straight from the heavens!

I am (working) in Kosovo, searching the web for the rum from Guatemala (bottle in a basket) and I come across this site! By-the-by, if anyone knows what that rum from Guate is, please let me know. Right now, when I drink rum, I drink 7 year old Havana Club. Drinks like a fine congac.

I am working on a Defense Department contract here in Kosovo. That contract is up this summer of 2010 and I am done. Money or no, I am heading to the warmer latitudes for the sunsets and the great rums, neat, no ice, no mixers!

I live in South Africa\Florida\Aruba\La Dique\ etc., etc. I am at that point in my life where my kids are grown, college is paid for and now I am going to live my life.

Thanks for this site. Cheers, ching-ching, Saludos!

Welcome to the forum MeenGeen! Do you have any more clues for the rum you're searching for? A couple of the Zacapa rums has a 'basket' tied around the waist...

You're looking for Zacapa Centenario. It used to be covered in woven plait but that bottle has been replaced.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
