The US is a very lucrative market, having some 40% of the world's rum drinkers, that would most likely jump at the chance to enjoy this mystical rum that has been made into a holy grail of rums because of the fact that it has been banned in the US for 50 years.
No matter what the outcome of the trademark battle, the real losers in this war are the Americans that enjoy fine rum and are banned by the same government that allows trade with Russia, China, Korea, and Vietnam, countries that gave us a lot more grief that the tiny country of Cuba has ever given us. I guess that we need to think about why is this such a problem for our government when the people of the United States would really like to travel to Cuba and enjoy their rum. ;o(
