Same here, but just continue the checkout process.
After Shipping options with ground shipping button
clicked, hit continue and Free shipping is indicated
with discount code "VRFS," entered in the box.

Had to opt for a delayed ship date but I am so looking
forward to trying this!

I'm in! I saw the VRFS code and the shipping was deducted. I paid via PayPal and I initially got a message that it didn't go through, but then got confirmation emails from both Shopvin and Paypal.

Been wanting to try this and a semi-local liquor store has it for $31.99 but somehow I never made it down there. Now I just have to wait for delivery

Seth states his usual price at $40.99, but every time I have looked at Shoppers Vineyard, they had the Vizcaya on everyday markdown to $32.99. Still a GREAT deal but the shipping always put me off. No more excuses now

Always meant to pay a visit to the Shopper's Vineyard store (easy driving distance) but I was afraid of what (and how much) I would walk out with!!

Unhappy Careful... Dry corks

Hey folks,

Maybe this is an anomaly, but I got my shipment of Vizcaya. Opening the first bottle, the cork broke off in the stopper. Had to dig the rest of the cork out of the bottle. It was quite dry.

Haven't tried the other bottle yet. I wonder if this is old stock that hadn't been tipped for a long time..

Edit: Opened the second bottle (the first was actually for a friend..) The cork was indeed very tight and seemed a bit dry. I managed to slowly ease it out intact. I probably would have broken it just like my friend if I hadn't known to be careful.

Never having tasted Vizcaya before, I can't say if it was adversely affected. It certainly tasted good! Very similar, IMHO to Ron Atlantico.

Is it possible there are Seconds in the spirit world? If so, would they be advertised as such?

I love the Hunt for old discontinued bottles of rum. Sometimes the cork seems to turn in the bottle but after closer inspection it's usually just the foil sleeve. If the corks are dry they will probably be smaller and pull out easier. A cork that breaks might be a run of bad corks.

If these are indeed older bottles of Vizcaya I kinda prefer those anyway.

Good point on the dry corks being smaller. Hadn't thought about it that way. Maybe the corks are just THAT TIGHT. Be interested in the experiences of others with Vizcaya corks.

A few years ago I broke a few s.n.#600,000 Pyrat XO corks because they fit so tight. They were not like the smaller corks on most bottles of rum. These things are large. I eventually started working in a 360degree circle to break the seal then twisting and pulling gently at the same time.

Good call. I think Vizcaya is somewhat similar in profile to Atlantico (also a Dominican rum), although I think Vizcaya has greater complexity. I don't like sweet rums very much, but Vizcaya delivers such an interesting cascade of flavor that I don't mind the sugar.
