Default Renegade Rum

Renegade Rum is the latest addition to the small batch rum bottling to hit the radar.

That looks interesting. I'll try to get some more information from the distiller. Some of the Guyanese unblended rums don't resemble the El Dorado 15 year old that we know and love.

How is the distribution on the Renegade Rum? Do you think I could find it in KY, OH, IN or MI.

If you are very lucky you may find it at the Party Source in KY, I would keep my hopes up in those other states yet. I'm looking for a good online store that stocks it.

Any tasting notes on these rums? They have me interested but I don't want to purchase any without further info. A little too pricey for that gamble right now.

I further read in an older post that they would be in the US by July 2008 but I don't expect them to be any cheaper than the UK prices. So if they are well reviewed...Ill give one or two a try.

I met with the distributor CVI this week and asked him about the Renegade. He said he was not sure about bringing it to the states- it seemed like only a maybe right now. I think that has to do with the slow response the McDavids got. The MMDs are almost gone now, so he might change his tune. But it didn't sound optimistic. I of course pushed him to do it, but we'll see.
