Considering the weight (3.75 pounds per 1.75L bottle), and it's cross-country, I didn't think it was THAT bad.



The real bummer is that to ship from Miami to Orlando is about the same cost for whatever reason: maybe $24. =




Once it's loaded onto a truck it makes no difference whether it's travelling 100 miles or 1,000 miles. It's still going through the same amount of handling.

True. And some use the "shipping" to make profit above and beyond the cost of the item. How many times have I bought some light-weight thing online and been charged $6 to ship it. Then it arrives in a first-class letter envelope. It does keep merchants in business, otherwise I just might not be able to buy all the cool stuff that's out there.

Bad news. Sunset just emailed me to say that the item I'd ordered is out of stock.

Bummer Pat! You'll have to drive down to Santa Clarita to try some. I'm glad I got it just at the cutoff then. I opened it last night and tried a bit and couldn't make an immediate judgment. It sorta tasted cheap, but then I don't drink dark Jamaican rums neat. It had a strong burn but not like Meyers's.

Uh oh. Just checked their website and "Kohala Bay" no longer returns search results.

Yes - I checked too. Sunset Corners is out. Roy's is out. Star Liquors III is out. RNDC currently don't have any in stock and have no time frame for when it will be back again. Furthermore, Carriage House Imports in NJ won't be getting anymore in stock. In short, looks like the distillery in Jamaica has well and truly ended production of this classic rum. Anyone who has an unopened bottle - don't open it! Long live Kohala Bay!

I think some inquiries to Wray and Nephew are in order.

I just got an email from sunset saying that the item I had ordered is avaliable again. False alarm? (I sure hope so.)

Can anyone confirm if Sunset Corners has it back on the shelves in the actual store? Sending mommy to go pick me up some since they won't ship to TX.

It will be interesting to see how long it lasts. I'm guessing it's just a backlog in the supply chain.

The Mai-Kai remains out. They can't get their supplier to tell them how long the outage will last, so they're actively seeking a replacement. More info to come.

Mike, I'll go no later than tomorrow afternoon. The website wasn't returning any results, but since it's pretty close to me, I'll go and do a flyby reconnaissance to see what's what.

Highly anticipating the reply. My mother lives in Lauderdale and I asked her literally days before it was announced that the rum was going on hiatus for a while if she could pick me up a case next time she's in Miami. Sadly that didn't happen in time and I'm reluctant to use my last few ounces til I know more is on the way.

Just got back from Sunset Corners, and I bear bad news...KB is not currently available but they expect production to resume "before too long" although they have no specifics as to when that may be.

They DO however, have Hamilton 86!
