Ron del Barrilito 2 star and 3 star are certainly worth carrying back. DonQ Gran Anejo and the Bacardi Reserva Limitada are fine and in limited supply. Trigo's Reserva Aneja in a distinctive hand blown bottle is a nice find too.

Thanks Rum Runner...I emailed him with your suggestions immediately.
Hope I got to him in time, lol.

Cheers!

I can only guess that Rum Runner is expecting Canita to become hard to find and wasn't going to mention that one.

Well...Now that the cat is out of the bag....I highly recommend Ron Canita Alambique "Extra Fuerte" white by Trigo. It stands apart from other white rums produced here both in flavor and strength (86 proof).

Hard to find? Is there something you gentlemen would like to tell us?

Sorry if I alarmed you.

I like it with coconut water or tonic water or with a splash of passion fruit juice.
