They must be feeling guilty for closing down the distillery.(thinking about organizing a tour before it closes for good) I hope the store's not as busy as the store in Puerto Rico. I stood in line for 30 minutes without moving and had to put the items back I was going to buy as I had a bus to catch. My wife is in Nassau this week and has picked up 7 bottles of rum so far, Rubi Rey, Tommy Bahama, one of the Clement high ends, and four Cubans. Now I remeber why I married her!!!

While I am not Puerto Rican by birth, after having been a resident here for more than ten years, I can say that I have not seen one instance of Bacardi feeling "guilty" for any of it's multi-national business decisions.

Though, there are times I wish they had.

Your better half is to be admired for her stocking of the locker.

My better half is going to visit the store tomorrow. She is already complaining her bags are too heavy with all the rum!! Hopefully I may get a new rum shirt though. I asked to take some photos so I can add them to my site.
