Back in 2006 and 2007 I remember buying this lovely white Rum branded as Oronoco. Now I cannot find it anywhere. I live in Northern California and I even had my guy at K&L do some digging, and he can't get it.
Does anyone know of a source for Oronoco Rum?
What about distribution sources for other rare and fine rums? I've seen what BevMo has to offer. I've tried it all, and I'm looking for some new adventures.
Lastly, I'm new here. I tried searching the forum for this topic but, alas my searches didn't yield a result. So, since I am new here, if this topic is already on the forum and I just couldn't find it, I apologize, and if anyone could point me in the right direction, that would be great.

Since your in Calif. shipping prices will be reasonable
so check out Hi-Times http://www.hitimewine.net/
based in Costa Mesa, Ca.
I checked the availability of Oronoco Rum (from Brazil) found it here at Total Wine.com
Maybe Hi-Times can special order it for you?
It is still being made though & I found several websites have reviewed it recently.

I found the totalwines site, but the page/price never finished loading. I can try calling HiTimes and ask about it. I *just* found this article from 2013 that states it has been discontinued. http://bahamabobsrumstyles.blogspot.com/2013/09/oronoco-discontinued-brazilian-rum-will.html
Man, this one was really good. I wish I'd bought more of it a long time ago ...

I had initially heard Oronoco was going to stop being distributed to the US, then heard it was being discontinued entirely. That is a shame and a great loss, this was one of the best white rums I've ever had and it would have been a regular favorite of mine if not for the price. If I do run across a dusty bottle on a store shelf I will grab it up.
