Getting around the islands can be half the adventure of discovering new rum.

Default Rum shopping in Jamaica

My daughter is flying to Jamaica next Saturday, and I was wondering if anyone knows of good rum shops. What's probably available at prices too good to pass up?

You probably won't find great deals on the rums you mention but you might find some other Caribbean rums at good deals. I try to check local grocery and liquor stores for bottles which have been discounted. Most islanders tend to drink their local spirit and often ignore imported spirits.

Sangsters' rum cream isn't available in the US and is one of the most requested products from Jamaica.

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