I'm currently helping Andy and Angelreplace "Temporary Images" with 
correct ones.
Hopefully many of you have noticed 
that your "Cabinets" have changed.
Initially I have concentrated on the big Agricole brands from Guadeloupe, Marie Galante and Martinique (Around 650 different bottles) that’s 
something I care for, but I’ve also 
started to look in to several other 
brands.
For the mentioned Agricole’s, 
there’s now only 8 "Temporary 
Images” left and I will suggest Andyto remove around 20 duplicates.
To facilitate the work in the futureI urge everyone to be clear in what it’s you rate, the more info the 
easier to find an "Image". A 
close-up photo is great and if you 
take a good photo against a clean 
background, it can also be used as 
an image.
If you have any special requests, 
you’re welcome to address them via 
this thread and I will do my best togive you nicer "Cabinets".
Best Regards Stefan

Truly great work, Stefan!!!!! I have already mentioned a few duplicates to Andy and they have already been merged. The amount of duplicates is rampant among the cheaper rums from very big corporations. However, since most rum fans will not go looking for those bottom shelf ones, any duplicates in that department are barely worth the effort to fix. Check out Brugal for one.

Many of the producers of rums seem to like keeping us consumers all confused. Quite often, the same rum will have different labels depending upon where each version is marketed. As a case in point, I saw a "new" rum from the Virgin Islands on the bottom shelf of a liquor store about 50 miles away from me. I left it there, but my curiosity got the best of me and I started digging through reviews here based upon country. I found it alright, but it went under two different names: St Elmo and St. Elmo's. I at first thought that this was yet another dirty rotten trick like what happened with Bacardi Anejo Cuatro when it first came to market. There were three reviews back then from the same person for that same rum spelled differently. This has been corrected for the Bacardi. But the two different spellings for St. Elmo show two different bottles in photos submitted. The same rum probably exists for each, but the company changed bottles and labels to lead many of us into believing that one of them is a "new" rum on the market. That bottle will remain on the bottom shelf.

I googled St. Elmo and St. Elmo’s and couldn’t find any proof that they both comes from the same company. But I’m not surprised. This kind of cheap stuff can be named quite similar and still be separate brands, but they could also come from the same producer with different labels but with the same “shit” inside.
Ffffff

I recently learned how to make a good photo with no background. Just take a big white sheet of paper and bend it gently against the wall so that you cover the corner between the wall and the floor.
