Ron Facundo Paraiso
     The Spirit Business published its list of the 10 most expensive rums in the world Tuesday and there are some very interesting ones included.   I have had an opportunity to taste some of them and others I don't think I will ever get the chance to try.  They are just way beyond my budget .

Harwood Collection
     These are some very impressive rums and even more impressive price tags.  The other factor is
that they are in the cases of the most expensive nearly impossible to get your hands on.     I often get asked how expensive are really good rums, and I try to explain, that rums are as a whole, are not really that expensive as compared to other spirits.
