Lots of oak, aromas of baking spices, a hint of vanilla and bitter chocolate, and a long earthy finish. Intense.
I wish.

Most health food stores carry ginger beer. AND YES! Dark and Stormy's are the way to go. One of the best drinks in the world, but you have to use Gosslings Rum.

Long time ago when the earth was young there was a place in Kensington Market, Toronto called Tigers. It was, and might still be, a Jamaican restaurant, and they brewed ginger beer. Always had a big pot of it sitting on the stove. Fiery stuff!

2oz of Flor de Cana rum, 2oz of Nellie and Joe's key lime juice, 4oz real(as in made with cane sugar) Coke. I don't like and rarely ever drink soda pop of any sort but that drink is SO very tastey it's hard to beat. Best of all I find it's actually better when served without any ice.

For my birthday my daughter gave me a local micro distillery brewed rum from San Leon, Texas call Railean, very, very good stuff ..........m

From a friend of mine's Facebook posting today:

Oh Captain....why do you treat me this way? You lore me in with your gentle flavor and befriend me all night and then in the morning you kick me right in the balls! The worst part is I still love you.

Eat your hearts out! My visitors from down under arrived with a liter of Bundy OP... makes Bacardi 151 taste like soda pop! As a result, I will be away from this post for some time I'm afraid... cheers, Capt Phil

Hey, I am sure some of the online booze shops sell internationally. You may be up for some duty or similar. But it shouldnt be that hard to get.

Good luck, I know I would be stressed if I couldnt get my VB ( or even tooheys).

Cheers
Oz
