Great find!

Somehow a great deal makes the rum taste better.

I had similar luck last year when I scored some wicked cheap Coruba from a liquor store that was getting rid of stock.

Default While talking deals...

Talking about great deals, I just found Oronoco for $19.00
HAD to be a mistake in price labeling. Usually, if you can even find it, it sells for $42.00 and UP.
It was my first experience in a white, and had to have it because of all the praises for it.
Any suggestions on great whites?
