Hi Josh, welcome!

Unfortunately not many US members around, but it is never bad to be the first one and I am sure you will find many likeminded folks :slight_smile:

Enjoy :tumbler_glass:

Hi Josh, welcome.

Maybe there is someone lurking around quietly, as the forum at least is centered in central Europe especially the bottle split and shop recommendation part.

Where are you from in the US? As far as I can see from my own lurking in the r/rum and r/rum serious communities the US market is quite different from ours not only in offerings but also where and how to buy (or being allowed to even).

Hi Josh and welcome!

@xasmx is also US based :wink:

But overall not a lot of US forum members so far…

Welcome! :smiling_face::tumbler_glass:

According to app statistics, the US is already the 3rd largest user group with 17%. So there should be some silent readers from the USA in the forum. :smiling_face::us:

Moin Josh :v: Welcome here!

Hi Josh! I’ve been wanting to find out as well, and I am from the US, in Boston! I recently asked on the Ministry of Rum facebook group (Redirecting...) if there were US rum enthusiasts interested in samples exchange, and will soon propose one on the platform since there seem to be enough members. Fingers crossed!

Looking forwards to it! Never managed to find my way into any sample exchange ring in the US, so mostly end up buying full bottles, which isn’t really cost viable in the long run when hoping to experience a wide variety of rums.

I’m thinking of posting my list of open bottles to the samples forum for US swaps to see how it goes.

@Oliver how to split the bottlesplits and offering samples thread in Europa and USA? Or creat an new categorie? Easy to find for users i think

I have just created a new sub-category to keep things organized. Subcategories can also be muted by clicking on the bell.
