Apparently it will be here in 2 or 3 weeks, and the price will be about $99. (we wont know for sure until it is here.)

Thanks for the update; it sounds like it will be close for my trip, but luckily I have 30 other so odd rums that you have stocked there on my list!! Sadly I can only bring 4 back and probably some for while I'm down there. I was thinking my top four I'd pick up if they were in stock would be Pussers 15 YR, Ron Barcelo Imperial, Zacapa 23, and Ron Botran 18 YR or possible the ED 21 YR. Can't wait to see the store!

Thanks Calgaryx, I only get over to Calgary about every two years so I'll stock up on a number of items next time I'm there. There are so many options at Hitime's that I'm sure I'll have plenty to choose from.

To Forrest, I'll send a PM to you shortly, I'd definitely love a 1703!!! Looking forward to meeting you in a few weeks and seeing the shop!

A liqour store here in Orlando has it, and I bought a bottle last week.
I'm sorry to say I am a little disappointed.

Mt Gay Extra Old is one of my favorite rums, but for me the 1703 is not nearly enough better to justify the price difference.

Side by side they are about the same color.
I can taste the extra aging in the 1703, but there is a bit more of an alcohol burn in there also. a few drops of water softens it down, but I still prefer the Extra Old, especially at less than half the price.

We had a bottle of Pyrat 1623 open earlier this evening, and that completely puts the 1703 to shame.

That is a GREAT looking bottle...


Mind you, I'm naturally suspicious of fancy spirits packaging, but if I'm going to ask a customer to drop $100 on a single bottle, it helps if the product looks like it should be worth the money.

Contrast that with the pricey Gosling's bottle, which is nice, but not anywhere near as elegant as this.
