Default Rare Find!

I was hankering for something to wet my whistle in ye olde Pirate Catagory, when I stopped at a random liquor store and came across this beauty.



I'm still looking for more bottles if anyone knows where one might locate more, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Aside from my discovery, anyone else find anything rare recently?

Default Rare find - from Poland!

Hello, there!

I am not really big on alcohol, however my father-in-law who is in his 80-ies has had quite a stock. It has shrunk over recent 20 years but now he pulled ou this Havana Club rum and he claims it is over 40 years old.

It says on the bottle that it was aged for 7 years before selling.

What price could one ask for such a rare find?

I will appreciate any comments.

That is worth exactly what someone would be willing to give you for it. But unless you have the proper licenses it is illegal to sell alcohol in almost every country in the world.



The Ministry of Rum website is not the place to sell any alcohol unless you are licensed to do so.
