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.
