This rum is imported from "The Caribbean" (whatever that means) and bottled in Holland. It's cheap and not worth your time, really.....unless you like your rum thin and heavy on the black pepper, with a little molasses and ether (?) thrown in. The Rebellion people really push their spiced rum on their website and ads. My guess is that they use this same generic rum, doctored up so as to satisfy the rum-and-coke kids. No thanks.
