I hit a dead end. Here's my last exchange with Edward Hamilton from the "Ministry of Rum":

Sven answered:
Maybe you can talk to Mr. Wray's nephew's nephews then about Dagger being still available...thou I suspect that it might be the Import and Bottling company who is responsible...



So what about Carriage House? Did anybody ever get through to them? The small print on the bottle's neck actually reads "Imported by and BOTTLED in the U.S.A. for Carriage House Imports, LTD, Springfield., NJ". It is a plastic 1.75 Liter bottle termed "Lightweight Pack with built-in pourer".

What if the contents are some "old stock" that's been sitting in their tanks for years and which they are now trying to get rid off in cheap wholesale bottles, thinking dark heavy rum is unpopular these days?

For those of you that live in Los Angeles I may have some good news concerning Dagger, my friends at Vendome are interested in tracking this rum down and getting it in there store for sale. I will probably drop by there this weekend with the info you all have provided here in an effort to help them get Dagger in stock. I will update you all when I here back from them.

Sven,
I think Kern is going to have to kill you. I thought he said Dagger was a secret ingredient at the Mai Kai. I just saw this thread and I now fear for your life. Besides if California buys up all the left over stock of Three Daggers, Kern will have no trouble getting a posse of Florida locals together to hunt you down. Consider yourself warned.... also, if you do find some extra stock please send me a bottle.

For those of you still looking for a bottle of One Dagger, keep saving those pennies. Only $320 for a fifth.

hi all - i'm new to this site, as i was looking for info on a bottle of wray & nephew three dagger rum (10 y/o) I came across, and i thought someone might know how much its worth? near as i can tell, it has to be at least 50 years old, it has a state of illinois tax seal on it, unopened. thought about putting it on ebay but since i have no idea as to what its worth i thought i'd try to fnd out first.

any info would be greatly appreciated!

Here are some so-so pics I pulled from a recent e-Bay auction for a Dagger Rum booklet of about 30 pages or so. Maybe the person who won it will share info with us at some point, but here is the cover, production process diagram, and a couple of authentic Dagger Rum recipes to peruse:

I recently won this item. It is a postcard record for Dagger rum. I will rip the record soon and post it as well.

Well, it took me a while, but here it is... sort of:

Dagger Rum Postcard record

Why sort of? Well, my stupid $25 USB turntable has a preset stop point for the center of the record and this record goes beyond it. That is why it abruptly stops!

Swank, any way to fool the program into making a first half and a second half then splicing them in an mp3 editor?

I wish I could. The turntable cuts off when the arm gets to a certain point, like some old turntables auto return the arm...

Mmmmm 5 bottles of 3 Dagger Rum Punch!

HOW TO ENJOY DAGGER:

It was one of those crazy sunsets over the Silverlake tonight....



....where you ask yourself "How do they come up with this stuff !!?"



The Grifffith Observatory looked liked it was about to lift off...
So it seemed like the right moment to break into "the leftovers"



They gotta go at some point! Also in the mix:
Some Cuban tobacco, some Guyana joy juice...



..the Lemon Hart being just as much a taste of history now as the Dagger.

Hmm, wonder what's happening over the hill in Hollywood:



Whatever it may be, I am perfectly content sittin' on my porch and staring at my lights:
