I was able to sample some of the Cask 1703 with Chester Browne of Mount Gay. Delicious stuff. Superb.

Chester is making the rounds... what's your opinion? Is it worth a hundred?

While I have not tasted it but from the information I've managed to gather it seems like a good deal to me. In Europe the price will probably be over 100 euros. I need to review this.

I'd rank it up there with Appleton 21, based on the small tasting I did with Chester and Laura Baddish. I'd like to spend some more time with it to really put together some notes, but my initial impression is that it's worth the buck.

Now when and if this comes available in Canada, I may have to cross the border and sneak me up some rum ;-) I hate waiting.

I got to try this wonderful rum at the San Francisco MoR Festival. It is a refined sipper of the highest quality. We were able to try it, side by side, with the XO. Definitley, it is the rich, older, uncle of the same family. The kicker, I got home to find that my bottle from Shoppers Vineyard will be in my hands tomorrow.

Rumdog007, if you happen to be at HiTime in the next few weeks can you check with them if they'll be bringing the 1703 in? I'll be down there about the 3rd week of May so if they have it then I'll definitely snap it up.

forrest???????

I know that they'll have it at some point. But, I got the idea from the MG rep at the tasting that the west coast is still a month or 2 away,

But, forrest knows more about the situation....

I got my my bottle today from Shoppers Vineyard todaay. I know what I am doing tonight!
