Good luck with the finishing touches on the site. Sometimes they seem to take the longest. It's always something.

I noticed the Refined Vices forum is up again, so the Count must be almost done. Good work Tatu, sorry that so much information was lost, but glad things are going in the right direction!

Most is done indeed. I just need to figure out which News Articles I'm missing because I don't have a record of the most recent ones. If you had any favorites that you remember reading post them here!

This can also work as a suggestion or a request box.

This is it, Refined Vices is finally back bigger and better with many new sections and completely reformatted articles. Next rum reviews will be the Maui range of rums.

I forgot to update. All the Maui rums have been reviewed here, here, here and here.

Other stuff of interest regarding Ron Matusalem 18 and 23 which I will also be reviewing in the near future.

If you haven't checked it out yet keep an eye on the brand new Events section and if you've got an upcoming event or know of any rum or whiskey related event let me know and I will put it up!

Thats it for now. Next up will be reviews of Mount Gay XO, Mount Gay 1703 and Mount Gilboa. Eventually I will also be adding Mount Gay Tricentennial to the reviews.

Upcoming articles will be about Bacardi's Daiquiri 100th Anniversary party in Sydney, Sydney Barshow and RumFest 2010.

Another rum with the number 23 in it's name. If I wasn't skeptical before of slick marketing copy, I could be. But I'll wait until I taste this one before I write anything else about it.

That rum was also at the Sydney Barshow but I didn't have a chance to taste it as I realized what was left of it was gone after I saw someone waving an empty bottle of it in the air. That was also when I realized they even had it!

Bula Vinaka Count Silvio now you are in the South Pacific it is only a 4 hour plane trip to Fiji and we have a nice little Distillery here making Bounty Rum and supplying our Rum to some other heavy hitters around the world in their label and Brand so look forward to your visit.
I have been in Fiji for 7 years now and married to a Fijian and it is a great palce to live. My wife complains she waited all her life to find some one like me to take her out of Fiji and now all I want to do is stay here.

I've always wanted to visit Fiji and visiting your distillery would be great!
