Thumbs up RRI Welcomes Doorly's XO to British Columbia!

*Rumor Confirmed*

A year in the making and our shipment is finally on its way!-- Our precious cargo left Barbados this morning!

Rum Runner Imports [RRI] is a family business and Doorly's XO is our first product. As we grow, we hope to bring more of Richard Seale's line to BC; and expand into other producers as the market will support.

Thanks to the MoR for being a great resource with wonderful contributors and to Ed for bringing it to life.

Our target will be the private specialty stores, but any store in BC has the potential to make a special order. So if you want it at your favorite store-- that is just around the corner, please make it happen.

If anyone knows store owners in BC that appreciate fine rums, please let me know!

It should arrive fairly soon (2 week?), might take some time to clear customs as its the first one etc etc and then it needs to be set up in the LDB system...don't worry I'll keep you all informed.

Have you had any luck getting it set up in the LDB system or do you have to wait until it arrives? I was also curious, will it ship with the tin they show on this site or just the bottles only:

Yes correct, we'll have to wait until Doorly's XO has landed here to get it set up in the system.

I did asked Richard at R.L. Seale re: the collector tins, and he states that only a few tins have made their way to the US and it is predominantly an European promotion.

Thanks for looking into the collector tins, too bad they won't make it here. I guess its what's inside that really counts!

You mentioned earlier that you might bring in some other rums from the R.L. Seale line. Any idea of what might be coming next?

Any suggestions from the user community of other R.L. Seale rums worth trying?

Well, it's all quite a bit down the road, but we can potentially bring in anything from their line.

This links above shows all that is available.

*the oldbrigand and the RL Seale 10 are the the same product, just bottled differently for the North American and Euro market. Both come in the crooked neck bottle.
