Dearest Snobs and HairSplitters,

Can you please explain the difference between these 2 bottlings?



My humble thanks in advance,

A millesime means the rum is from a certain year, usually a good one. 1982 from this bottle as I can see. It's the same with wine, they do millesime when the grapes are of good quality some years.
Hors d'Age is a certain time of aging, but we can't know from when the aging took place.

Excellent. Thanks V!

Last time I checked my secret store, they still had a few bottles on a dusty shelf. I need to grab em while I can.

yes, you can, but it's very rare. Or on some websites, like here : http://www.lacompagniedurhum.com/saint-james,fr,5,84.cfm
did you try at the amazing rum store Christian De Montagučre ? Or at https://www.facebook.com/cavearhum
