That Hallmark 25 is not going to be available too much longer so if you like it grab it.

I love both El Dorado and XM. However, El Dorado seem to change their blends quite often - the 12 year old, for example, doesn't taste the way it used to, while the 5 year old we get in England - and it can be difficult to find - doesn't taste the same as the 5 year old in Guyana.

A couple of years ago I was sent samples of a number of the Rum Nation rums. I was very impressed that each of those rums was very representative of the country from which it came, unlike some of the new private labels which are more marketing than rum.
