I will be going on a cruise and stopping in the Grand Caymans , Montego Bay , Ocho Rios and Cozumel.

Are there any certain rums I should be on the look out for?

Ocho Rios, Jamaica? You might want to keep a look out for the elusive pimento liqueur since it's not being exported from what I understand. It's made by Wray & Nephew and I believe it's being marketed as "Berry Hill" pimento allspice liqueur.

If you're going to be in Jamaica, I'd look for the 21-year-old Appleton rum. Should be a heckuva lot cheaper there than here.

It's not rum but I've heard Blackbeard Ale is very good and the bottles are pirate themed with jolly roger bottle caps! It's brewed in St. Thomas but available through out the Caribbean.

Look for Havana Club. They did not have any in the stores I checked in the Bahamas (Nassau).

But I have cousin going to Jamaica this summer, so it would be nice to know if it is available there. Although, as you are in Canada, you should be able to get Havana Club there I guess...so maybe it's not that interesting to you, lol.

Hey Rodeo,

Both Havana Club and Coruba are readily available in Calgary, so I wouldn't bother picking them up (unless of course you get a great price).

Can't get Coruba in Virginia - where I live, but I work in Maryland, where I CAN get Coruba!

Hey Rodeo, did you find any good Rums (or maybe visit a distillery) on the trip? Just curious!

Just got married and had a Caribbean honeymoon. Here's what I brought back:

1 fifth Guavaberry rum liquer (homemade, handpainted bottle)
1 fifth Passion Fruit rum liquer (homemade, handpainted bottle)
1 fifth Bacardi Zombie (can't get it in WA state for some reason)
1 litre Cave Rum from Turks & Caicos Islands
1 litre Calypso Island Coconut Rum liquer
1 litre Calypso Island Spiced Rum liquer
1 litre Mount Gay Eclipse
1 litre Mount Gay Aged Sugar Cane Rum

I had a couple others that conveniently "broke" at the Airport. Some poor baggage handler is having a good time on my rum.

And then I just came back from Canada with:
1.14 litres Havana Club Rum
1 fifth Havana club 7 Years aged

did you declare that you had them , they didn't care, and you had to pay a duty tax?

I live right next to Canada, I was thinking of picking some up just cause I can.
