Default Great Rum Makes A Great Holiday Gift

My Fellow Rum Enthusiasts,

I am pleased to announce that next Tuesday, December 11, we're presenting one of the best rum tasting events in many years here in South Florida. Here is my hand-picked list of Gifted Rums designed to make great holiday gifts for those that appreciate the very best.

The event takes place at Sunset Corners Liquor Store, 8701 Sunset Drive from 6 to 8pm. I've included a list of the rums we've arranged to taste, along with some special prices for those that can attend.

You must reserve online to attend this event as my guest - for free.

I look forward to receiving your RSVP and seeing you there.

-Rob

That is one hell of a list.


And I'm kinda proud to say that I'm only missing 2, and have had one of them anyway. :-)

I only have 6 of the rums listed...and Florida is a bit too far for me.

As my wife would say, "Lame."

Not the event...the part about it being too far away.

I only have 4 of the rums mentioned in the list. I'd love to have the Diplomatico and the Clement XO.

Almost embarrased to admit only having two.

I did however copy the list and have sent it to family members who live in less oppressive states. Perhaps Santa will be good to me this year.

Nothing to be embarrassed about. As recently as 6 months ago I had NONE of the rums listed. Actually, that was as recently as AUGUST!

I have every rum on the list, except the last 2 Clements. I did taste the Homere on St. Barts, and it is a phenominal rhum agricole. I had to choose not to buy it because of the price:150 Euro! I recently requested this rhum from Total Wine, and they said no. As for the XO, this is one rum I might spend the cash on, based on the other offerings from Clement. I would probably purchase both. I cant make it down to South Florida, too busy at work.
Is there another way to aquire these rhums??
