Martin, let him know that on the east coast, the MMD's are starting to sell well and the Plantations have always done well. Cadenhead's were so delicious, but we only had a couple bottles in which were now out of. If they're distributor is looking for something, the east coast might do okay in specialty stores and bars.

They are not I would offer to a person just getting into rums as they don't really deliver the stereotypical flavour of a rum that the general public would associate with "holidays in the sun," or the "an after dinner drink under the Caribbean moonlight". But they will definitely challenge the palates of the MOR members and other discerning, seasoned rum sippers. I'm not sure if all four rums will be to everyone's liking but I'm sure there is at least one that will take your fancy.

Jamaica 1992
GUYANA 1990
Guyana 1995
Panama 1997

Tasting notes will be posted on the upcoming web page....

Do you expect them to move down the turnpike and distribute to NJ or PA?
