Looking at taking a cruise from Barcelona, Spain. Cannot seem to find any store that would carry premium rum ($100 +). Looking for suggestions.

Thank you

Jagsroy:

This has nothing to do with Barcelona, but I hope that you fared well for Hurricane Fiona. I saw images of the aftermath and it is mind blowing to see such devastation from a hurricane in Nova Scotia.

I am used to dealing with these monsters all of my life down here in Louisiana. If all that you got was power outages, consider yourself very lucky. I did get to walk out into the eye of one hurricane to see the stars at night.

Thank you mwb1. My only issue withduty free is the choice of rum. I definitely want to bring back something that is not available in Canada. Checked the La Fuente site and they definitelyhave a good selection.

Thank you Paul.jus got our power back. We had no news but innHalifax, where I live there was a lot od destruction from fallen trees. Cape Breton (northern part of Nova Scotia) was to be hit the hardest. Of course my priorities are:

1) Check out my rum sites

2) check outthe news. So off I go to see how much damagewas caused by Fiona!

As being a non EU citizen, when purchasing anything over the counter, don't forget to ask the store for a Duty/Tax for.  This to reclaim the Spanish spirit duty and their VAT.  Drop the form off at the departure customs office.  Some stores will automatically discount is store. The spirit duty will be about €3 per bottle, but the VAT is currently 21%Take passport as evidence.

I just thought that I should warn you since you have been cut off from the news. Houses were washed into the sea in one of the coastal cities. I forgot the very long name of one.

That was Port-Aux-Basques in Newfoundland.

lots of damage in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island as well. Today it's 70 F and the ocean is as calm as ever. How things change in only 1 day!

Glad that you fared well. Now you deserve one of your very best rums!!!

Last year, thanks to lots of rum, I slept right on through Hurricane Ida with 110 mph winds. I woke up to see the hellish damage the next day, but very little to my own house. Being without power for 76 hours on 100 degree days was an absolute nightmare that I am lucky to have survived. No power means no gasoline to get out of there.
