Frequently spending lazy afternoons on my regular stool at the Rum Bar in Key West provides me with plenty of opportunities to sample rare and interesting rums. This time around our friend George from International Wine and Spirits dropped by with a new super-premium rum from Costa Rica, Ron Centenario 25 Años Gran Reserve. This high-grade sipper won’t be available in the US until April, but you should put it on your wish list now because it’s going to be a huge hit. Like much of the Centenario line of rums, the 25 Años selection is rich, well-balanced, sweet and will be reasonably priced near $65. Here’s more.
