  1. Have you tried Lemon Hart 151 Proof rum? You're very lucky to have it in Nova Scotia...

    1. Unfortunately I live in New Brunswick and it is not available here. I do have friends going to NS from time to time. Maybe will try to have someone bring back a bottle.

      Nice to hear from you, I hope all is well in Ontario.

      Best,

  2. There are some aged rums that don't have sugar added. My favorite is Appleton estate 12 for lower budget but great flavor. The best is Appleton Estate 21 year maybe one of the best fine spirits period. Mount Gay XO is also good and again not too sweet as no sugar added and reasonable price.
