Zaya is a very good rum in Vancouver with their limited selection! Or if you can find it Admiral Rodney extra old 12 year.
Be careful with the Zaya rum, buy only the old version with the real straw neck and not the version with the printed neck label. Find more info under the ratings.
If you go to a 'Signature" BCLDB store, you can find the Flor de Cana line, higher end Appletons, Gosling's, and Matusalem. I haven't lived in Vancouver for about 5 years now, however, the best store was at 41st and Cambie St.
Legacy Liquor (1633 Manitoba St) carries a great selection of premium brands, but be warned - at a (swallow hard) premium markup. However, having searched the province(s), they seem to be the only ones who do - other than going to Alberta.
I've purchased a variety from them over the years, such as Diplimatico (Ambassador & Single Vintage), Brugal 1888, Plantation 20 XO and Santa Teresa 1796. Their website is decent, but missing a ton of product images for the premiums. Still, it provides origin country and price point.
You can also collect points redeemable for store purchases, which does help to offset the markup down the road.
