If it's the Royal Amber I'd suggest getting it. Apparently its the only rum in their lineup worth drinking (so of course its also the one with the sparsest distribution).
I'd second that. The Royal Amber is a very good Mai Tai rum, tho' not a sipper, and makes a really superior Mai Tai. Until the quality control went out the window at many Trader Vic's, it is the rum they are supposed to use for a TV Mai Tai. Get the Royal Amber if you can find it, but to the best of my knowledge, it is available at fewer than a dozen retail locations nationwide.
As for the rest of the Trader Vic's rums, sadly, they are a total waste.
