Bang-for-the-buck Rum of the year! 

Oliver Juanillo founded a sugarcane and tobacco plantation in Cuba in the 19th century. Quickly thereafter followed a distillery, which operated successfully until 1959, when Cuba was in the midst of the revolution. The founders of Oliver & Oliver fled with their know-how into exile to the Dominican Republic. There they found the conditions to produce high quality Rum to be even better. Oliver & Oliver produce the likes of PuntacanaTres Hombres, Quorhum and other top Rums.

Vizcaya Rum Cask No. 21 VXOP is a blend of 18 and 21 year old Rums distilled from sugar cane juice (rather than molasses) and aged in ex-Bourbon casks. Rums produced from sugar cane juice tend to be less sweet and more pungent than those produced from molasses (think Zacappa). Bang-for-the-buck Rum of the year!

Rum used to be accepted as form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.

Scott,
Guilty pleasure. "Cask number" is misleading (looks like an age statement), no idea what "Cuban Formula" means, what is a VXOP rum? Don't care...this stuff tastes great. Lots of vanilla. Fun sipping rum even if it's deceptive labeling.

Javier,
The God of all rums!!!! This will beat any high-end, overpriced rum put against it!!! Yes, a bold statement, I know but I have had exclusive rums, high end rums and nothing tastes like this. It's extremely awesome for the price, you can't beat it. The nose is OMG!!! Oh hail the sweetness. The taste is sweet, floral and herbal!! Did I mention, I love this rum!!!!!!!!
