As some of you know I'm helping Andy and Angel replacing temporary images with photos and also searching for doubles of the same rum.

So far I've replaced over 2200 temporary images with correct pictures and found over 300 doubles.

If you add a new rum.

First of all make a check that it's not already created.

Secondly, if you add a new rum, Please add a good front photo of the bottle (that looks like the images) especially if it's an uncommon rum hard to find photos of on the net.

If you have add a new rum and the temporary image hasn't been replaced with a photo within a week it's depending on that it's not possible to find a picture on the net and that I need a picture from you who added the rum.

If you want help to add a new rum you can use this thread to get help from me.

Let us altogether help each other to make this site the best rumsite.

Cheers

Stefan:

I have a very special case whereby I placed my review for the same physical rum under the wrong title because I had the Velier version of a Caroni. When I reviewed it, there was not even a place for the Velier version. Absolutely confusing, but I finally figured it out. I just don't know how to move an entire review.

Check the reviews for this Caroni and mine is the one with 5 likes. Make note of the pictures included.

This review clearly needs to be moved to the correct version below.

Paul,

I don't have the possibility to move a review nor delete it.

 I believe it's just Andy and/or his administrators that can. So we'll have to pass this question to Andy.

What you can do if you want is to write your review once more at the right place. /Stefan

Stefan:

My first urge was to write my review into the correct area. But the last time that I did that, I got flagged for duplicate reviews (years ago) and the correct review wound up getting deleted while the original review was still being stuck in the wrong place. After that, I just said to hell with it.

Thanks for passing this on to Andy.

Three new premium rums from Louisiana have recently graced the shelves of liquor stores. I will be reviewing their top of the line agricole tomorrow. When I created the new rum here, I did not have the URL, which has images for all three bottles. It will not let me add this URL to the new rum, so here goes:

Hi Paul,

Done, but it was a little hard to find pictures of the 2021 version. On their homepage they had just the 2022 version.

Stefan:

Thanks! I doubt that anyone will zoom in to see the different year. It is indeed the right bottle of the three versions of rum that they sell. My review will be posted tomorrow. If it is a good one, I may try their two less expensive ones. So far, it is very aromatic, just from opening up the bottle. I am now on my last day of antibiotics and still cannot drink. As an agricole fan, I know that you will be looking forward to my review.

Paul,

Read your review of the Oxbow. Should really like to taste it, but it will never be imported to EU as long as they call it Agricole.

So if you visit Sweden, bring me a bottle. I will as well try to find it when/if I visit the U.S.
