Many years ago I was sitting on a bar in Hydra drinking and watching the sunset with fantastic company.
During the winter it might be different and hopeful less touristic.

50 years of independence or 50 years in the cask?

So Dictador has issues few single cask selected by a master blender..
1978/79 till.82...

Is it possible that they have so old rum stored?
Could this be a pot still?
How can we verify age?

It would be interesting to find out if Rum nation bought the casks in bulk or not.
I do remember reading that the 1989/1990 are the last old demerara casks they have.

Really pity that the solera term is being abused. They should name it as blend and offer info on % of components.

A new Foursquare release came out at MoM last week. They had few bottles so i hope that they will replenish their stocks.

We should hopefully have enough rum between all of us to survive any long term shortage!

Btw, cocktailwonk is mentioning that Longpond has not distilled for some time. Wonder how easy it is to star ...

Very good prices!

Have also got a longpond 2000 from TRC and find it very very good.
There is a discussion in one rum blog (think BAT?) that the 2000 versions of Long Pond from most IB's are prob ...
