Default Hey from Sweden

Finally I realize Iґm home. I've been drinking rum for about 20 years, but never really been thinking about it. Now I want to learn more. I've been reading in the forum for a couple of weeks and already learned a lot! You guys really know what you're talking about.

Coming from Sweden, a somewhat backwards rum country I'm struggeling to get hold of great rums.

Looking forward to spend a lot of time here.

Regards from Sweden.
Jцrgen
