I personally love Matusalem rum. Their website is http://Matusalem.com and you can learn more about their Cuban heritage. They now make the rum in the Dominican Republic.

$30 to $35 a bottle here in Massachusetts.

Thanks for pointing that out. Dumb mistake on the part of their webmaster. You need the www. in there so try http://www.matusalem.com

There was a Matusalem rum still produced in Cuba up until fairly recently (I bought a bottle in 2002 at about $10, I think).

It seems that only the non-Cuban one is now available.

Yup, there’s the cheap immitation Matusalem from the DR who are trading on the name and “heritage” of a fine Cuban rum. However, some of us still have a bottle of the ORIGINAL Cuban Matusalem carefully preserved in our cupboard. :o))

Steve,

That photo of the Matusalem bottle is interesting. How old is that?

Steve,

I bought the bottle in either ‘98 or ‘99. Can’t remember which year. Picked it up in the rum shop at the Bocoy Rum Factory (Fábrica de ron Bocoy, Calzada del Cerro No. 1417, Cerro).
Believe it or not, as it’s now a “rare” bottle, I’ve never had the heart to actually open it. Maybe someday when I feel that special need to sit back and enjoy it. Perhaps the day I retire. Can’t remember when exactly I took the photo. A year or so after that.

Oh, and just to make you drool. Here’s an image of just “some” of my rum collection. Got several more exotic bottles that I have to photograph someday. :o))
