RedRum stopped being sold in South Carolina about two years ago. Since it’s the only rum that Mrs. The Rum Trader will drink, I am always on the lookout for any old stock that I can find around town. Last week a friend told me that he had seen some RedRum at a liquor store near his home. Thursday I ventured out during my lunch hour to have a look.
What I found was a veritable treasure trove of discontinued and old stock rum. I was shocked to see that more than half of their selection of rum was out dated or no longer being produced. After speaking with the owner for a few minutes, I walked out with six (6) different bottles and a promise to be back. The owner also told me that his brother’s store, in the next town, probably has even more old stock/discontinued rums. I plan to contact the two owners and try to make a bulk purchase. It will help them move some product and allow me to sample some rums that are no longer available.
Here are some photos I snapped with my mobile phone:
- Bacardi Island Breeze
- Admiral Nelson’s Raspberry
- Cruzan Junkanu Citrus Slash
- Beachcomber Flavored
- Cohete Guahana
- Ron Medellin Anejo 3 Years
- Old Havana Brand Cuban Style
- Nu Nui
- Grand Havana
- Governor General
- Cruzan Orange (Old Style Label)
Damn! I been up & Down lookin for a Bottle of Orange Cruzan Rum. Had No Idea it was DisContinued because of the Simple Fact that the Damn WebSite has it Posted as a Flavor you can still Purchase. I’ve seen the 750ml in Stores but I want the 1Lt Bottle for My Collection but Now I see why I can’t Find the Damn thing lol
Island breeze Bacardi was one of my favorite got it from Puerto Rico all the time. Know where to buy it
Bacardi Island Breeze launched sometime in 2009. Bacardi stopped producing it sometime in 2011 (according to my research). If you locate any it would be old stock that a retailer has not sold. My local retailer has sold through his stock but I occasionally will stumble across a bottle. I know that I saw a few bottles at Cash’s Liquor on my recent trip to Destin, FL. I’m not sure if they ship or not.
