I second the el dorado remark. I love the stuff although I have problems finding it. The 5 year old is great for mixing and the 15 or 21 year old is outstanding neat.

A true connaisseur! (One thing for Georgetown, we have no problems finding El Dorado...)

Almost impossible to find but really good is Ron Zacapa. I have a friend who likes Zaya but to me it tastes too much like Captain Morgan. I like the mt gay barbados sugar cane as well and it is quite a bit cheaper and easier to come by.

Captain Morgan Tattoo

And orange juice or orange juice pineapple juice 50/50, or with Meyers Dark, or with Big Black Dick from the Grand Cayman's. Sometimes some Mt. Gay, but not too often.

Like Vanilla Rum and Cream Soda also, ummmm

el dorado 15 year, usually pick it up on St. Maarten

Okay, I'm really glad to see this thread now, as I was just getting to the beverage section of my provisioning list for our BVI trip late this week. What of the above can I get in Tortola? Is the El Dorado available there?

We just got back from the BVIs. Barritts ginger beer and Goslings Black Seal rum were both readily available (and the Goslings was half the price it is in the States. Too hot for us to look for the good stuff to drink neat.

Bardo - Are you flying in through San Juan? If you're not picky about rare/exotic rums, you can get 1 liter bottles of Captain Morgans and Bacardi in the airport for less than $7USD. Last time I was there, they also had a few varieties of Cruzan.

Also, it seems like Appleton's is available most everywhere in the Caribbean.

Is there an issue with bringing it into BVI? I assume there is a one or two bottle limit. I'm sure they will tell me that there. Thanks Kwaltersmi. Not that I'll need too many bottles. Well, maybe I can go back a time or two....
