@PaulWe have different strategies for dealing with spending on rum. I don't use price limits and I take the refinancing approach. I share rum bottles and costs with others and I save good rums for later.
In fact, I bought all the samples last year when the prices weren't that crazy.An absolute price limit would limit the quality of rum that I can buy. Because if necessary, I also buy very expensive bottles of which I know that they can increase tenfold. And then it's no problem to drink one. The price limits are shifting and are always going up, therefore I don't limit myself.
Because I often buy three bottles of good rum, I will refinance all of my expenses in the future.Of course I bought also three bottles of Zacapa 30. One was for drinking/sharing/tasting two years ago, one is for drinking some years later and one is for selling or barter. In my review I mentioned the future prices two years ago when I tasted it. And we are almost there, this bottle costs 400 Euro now. I think two more years and we are at a price of 500 to 600 Euros for that one.
I only have one bottle of Last Consignment. That's a piece of history for me. Of course I only drank a sample as well for the review. I was afraid that it would taste overaged. I don't open such bottles lightly. I can no longer find Kirsch Caroni and SVW1996 at a reasonable price. I wouldn't open such a bottle because I know cheaper alternatives of less complexity.
