I’ve been drinking Kirkland Caribbean Spiced Rum from Costco here in Taiwan, ever since it became available. I love it! But, suddenly, without warning or explanation, it’s gone! But, browsing the aisles of Costco reveals lots of other liquors, and it’s my contention that even fewer people drink these!
This is Bacardi Carta Blanca. As the name implies, it’s a white rum. It’s colorless. It also happens to be flavorless, and it’s only use is to add alcohol content to some kind of drink that doesn’t depend upon adding flavor from this rum. I hate this stuff.
When is the last time you saw a Taiwanese person drink tequila? How about never! But wait:
They have no less than three kinds of tequila! Who is Taiwan is drinking this stuff? No one I know, or ever heard of! Try and find a Mexican restaurant nearby and then tell me how much sense this makes!
Look, here are 2 kinds of vodka! Again, who????
They even got 2 kinds of gin! But, out of the 2 types of rum they had, they discontinued the only one with any flavor! Costco Taiwan, you did a bad thing by discontinuing the Caribbean Spiced Rum!
