I have been going on about the value of Ron Caney Anejo Centuria for years, since Hamlet told me about it in November 2011, that it had been his favourite rum. Every time I visit Havana have have a guy have some bottles ready for me. For the last couple of years he has had a harder time finding it. Last February, there was only one shop that had it that we could find. A supermarket at 12 and Linea in Vedado. They had about 100 bottles on the shelf. For me, it was the best value rum in the world at $7.60 for 7 year old and very very nice. I had been hearing rumblings about discontinuation or repackaging, and I had seen a different package style in Italy. Then last week my worst fears were confirmed They have repackaged it and upped the price by 600% It's a nice tin tube and all but for $42 extra? To be honest a part of me feels vindicated in going on about what great value it was all those years. Mostly, it's sh**e. My favourite rum and rum-deal now costs more than Santiago 11. And if anybody's wondering, it's the same rum. I've done a few side-by-side tastings and can't see a difference at all.
