well well well my friend did come through .........with 3 bottles. 1 HC15 and a bottle of Varadero but the real treat was the bottle of Santiago de Cuba extra anejo annv.

It came in a charcoal black bottle, a slight curved indentation on the front and back near the base, large gold dust looking bulb top and of-course everything is wrote in spanish so I have NO IDEA what it reads across the front an back???hahaha

hey I have a ??on this aniversario bottle......I'm assuming it is the annv.45 why is the number 48 wrote in black with the number 5 wrote in red and dropped down  1/2 a line and placed half covering the 8? Is there meaning in the number 485 or is it in the numbber 48

I guess I'm just rambling on.......gotta get ready the movers come tomorrow so I'll check in after the move...6-8 weeks for household good to be shipped. That is a long time to be offline

take care all.

Cj....Congratulations on your shopping spree and here is a toast to your upcoming move back to the States.

I am marking my calender for two months then to look for you back on line. Then we will all be interested in your opinions on your unpacking your boxes and its treasures. Check your Private messages before you unplug, you will find a note for you there.

Good luck with the move.

CjBohl,

The number 45 is in reference to the "45th  year anniversary of the revolution".  I guess it's now 48 years after and the did not reprint labels so they made "manual" adjustment...

Cheers and I'm anxious to hear back from you and your thoughts on those super premium rums.
