Since posting a video about the Fairtransport, limited production Tres Hombres Rum a week or so ago, I have thought a lot about how to get my hands on some of this rum.
I contacted the company about aavailabilityin the United States and they politely replied that its “only available in Europe” but they hoped to bring it to the United States in the future. Needless to say I was saddened by their reply.
Then, to my shock and happiness, I got an email from Flavair.com announcing that they would be shipping limited quantities of Tres Hombres to the United States. Even with a lofty price of $85 US + shipping, I simply had to try this rum so I am happy to announce that a bottle is on its way to me. Yeah!
As of today, Nov. 7, 2014, Flavair was still selling bottles. So check it out if you are interested.
“This 2014 Edition Tres Hombres is the 5th edition, matured for 18 years in American oak barrels, using the Solera method (provided by Oliver & Oliver) letting the specific Caribbean climate contribute to its smoothness. There’s only a 4569 bottles available of this collector’s item. Tres Hombres is the first and only authentic Rum-runner to exist in this millennium. “
