Florida -- Rum shopping central?

Recommended Posts

Just got back from a trip to florida, and I was able to find a couple of interesting rums there at fairly typical liquor stores:

Pampero Anniversario

Westerhall Plantation

Grand Havana cuban style 3 year old from Westerhall

Flor de Cana Centenario (12 years) -- AMAZINGLY good

Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum 96 proof

Ron Abuelo

Also I found 2 types of rum cream, Angostura and Cruzan. I havent tried the Cruzan yet but I expect it to be good given the quality of their other products. We finished off a whole bottle of the Angostura -- surprisingly good.

Think that is the reason the selection is so good?

Yep. Although these were from regular liquor stores in west palm beach, nothing special. I really wanted to go to a high end specialty liquor store in Miami but we were pressed for time.

I'd be very interested to read your comments about the Grand Havana Cuban style rum from Westerhall compared to the Plantation Estate which varies from batch to batch but can be a good sipping rum considering it is only three years old.

Jason,

Would you mind sharing some details on your dining experiences while visiting Florida? As a Florida "foodie" here on eGullet, I'm always interested in hearing about your travels here and seeing comtributions to the Southeast board.

Thanks,

Rich
