    You'll really like Zaya. Also keep an eye out for Vizcaya from Dominican Republic. It's readily available and about $40US retail. It is very elegant.

    After all the buzz in this thread I've opened my bottle of Plantation 20th Anniversary Extra Old yesterday. Really good, very smooth.

    I always wonder how many rum out of the Dominican Republic there as all you see in the shops there is Brugal, Barcelo and Bermudez.

    #4 - Saint James Hors D'Age Rhum Agricole from Martinique (best example of terroir - Martinique rhums have a unique taste)

    Just picked up a bottle of Saint James Vieux Ambre...never had an agricole before, so figured I'd take the plunge.

    Just reviewed my booze closet and while I'm nowhere near cuffthis, I still feel somehow that I have too much rum:

    Pyrat XO Reserve
    Ron Zacapa 23
    Ron Zacapa X.O
    Brugal Siglo de Oro
    Brugal Extra Viejo
    Appleton Estate Extra
    Mount Gay Extra Old
    Ron Bermudez Aniversario
    Plantation 20th Anniversary Extra Old
    Barceló Imperial
    Barceló Añejo
    Barceló Extra Añejo
    Rhum Barbancourt 5-star 15 years
    Angostura 1824
    Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva
    Bacardi 8 years
    Pampero Aniversario
    Havana Club 7 years
    Santa Teresa 1796 Antiguo de Solera
    Ron Matusalem 15 Gran Reserva

    In the end I usually drink the Zacapa 23 neat and the Barceló Imperial for mixing.

    Okay, decision time: If I already have and enjoy Zacapa 23 and Planation 20th XO - is adding Zacapa XO still worthwhile?

    at typical prices the X.O is not worth the surcharge over the 23 in my opinion. If you find a good deal, go for it!

    +YES!

    In case anyone's curious, I emailed that Shoppers Vineyard link that AMA posted up about shipping prices. 6 bottles = approx $25. Not bad.

    Having too much of one might lead to a bit of the other, beware! [​IMG]

    Okay, a bottle of Plantation Reserve 5-year is now in my possession. I may have to wait on the Zacapa XO, for at least a few weeks.

    I bought some Barbancourt today, it's really quite nice. I don't know if it's as good as Zacapa 23, but it's also half the price.
