Thoughts: From what I have found about the store picks, is that the store choses the blends of rums that go into the bottle, so depending on who does the selection this could be very hit or miss. I am a huge bourbon drinker, so the strong bourbon flavors from this are very much to my palate.

Score: 82 out of 100
