I'll post something as soon as I have a date. I'll also post where it will be available.

Distribution is limited but T & T duty free is not the only place to find Demerara Single Barrel Rum.

I'm told that it will be first available in the US sometime around the end of November at Shopper's Vineyard in New Jersey, which fortunately has some online business.

This is interesting and I hope to discover soon, but I've been hearing it isn't El Dorado light and is a rather intense rum, in a good way. I know individual opinions are just that - the opinions of one but this has peaked my interest.

Good info, Ed, and glad to know the Vine-yard will carry it.

To call this Single Barrel El Dorado light isn't a very good description. It certainly isn't a light rum compared to say, Cruzan Single Barrel. But the flavor profile isn't as broad as the El Dorado 15, their flagship brand.

There are actually three different Single Barrel Rums from Demerara Distillers Ltd, one of these, EHP can be seen here. This and two more Single Barrel Rums should be available this weekend at Shoppers Vineyard in New Jersey. I'm told this will be coming to a few select stores in New York soon.

Post El Dorado Single Barrel Rums

I cannot remeber what thread this was mentioned on before, but Shoppers Vineyard has the El Dorado single barrel rums in, sold in three packs only for $179.:eek: Each rum is from a single barrel produced in a different still. Sounds very interesting, but the price is steep, having to buy all 3 at the same time.
Will I bend and eventually purchase anyway? Hard to resist.........

I knew that the three different single barrels were being offered to retailers in six packs but didn't realize that only three packs were being offered to consumers.

Mondo Liquors in NY will be getting these rums soon.

I don't care for the bottle style that much myself. I'd love to get it for the rum inside though!
While Speaking to the El Dorado blender at this years Food & Rum Festival in St Lucia, he openingly admitted that the bottle was styled on the Elements 8 rum from St Lucia.
