    Yes you still do have to worry about online ordering. You must physically accompany the bottles to get the Cuban $100 exemption, I believe.

    I've made numerous purchases from overseas and never had a problem, however, I haven't tried to sneak in a Cuban rum yet.

    Yes, I wasn't talking about normal overseas purchases. Only Cuban goods.

    I may be in the minority here, but IMO Havana Club 7 and Seleccion de Maestros are excellent, but I was very underwhelmed by the Gran Reserva 15.

    I always heard good things about the Barrel Proof that the Maestros replaced but never tried it. The 7 is certainly the better value and quite good. I could be convinced that is as good or better than the 15yo. Just let me know when you are going to host that tasting!

    This question may have been asked(and maybe even by me) but I'm too lazy to go back through the thread or my old posts....anyway what is the consensus on Appleton 21? At retail ($120ish)? What about on super(like 50% off) sale?

    Loved the 21 - only had 2 samples though. Not sure about the first price tag but the sale price is a buy now, taste, and think about how many for the bunker...

    Re: Rum Forum

    Found two of these fun bottles last weekend. Planter's Gold Pyrat XO Reserve. Apparently pre-Patron.. low 20k bottle number. I look forward to a special occasion to try it. Has anyone had this stuff? Thanks
