What an absolutely romantic choice of name for your product, huh? -

I have a friend who just came back from Cayman that said she had no trouble finding Big Black Dick's.
Cheers!

They do still have it at their store and a few select places on the island but nowhere else. I LOVE the coconut rum but last time we were there they just had light, dark and vanilla. I'm guessing they stopped the coconut which breaks my heart! If anyone knows if they still have the coconut I would love to know!

Seriously, it is so much better than Tortuga rum. Their dark rum tastes/smells like burned rubber. The 151 ain't bad, but how do you screw up 75% alcohol?

It is actually a very good quality rum, as I said so much better than Tortuga rum.
I am partial to the dark rum, but they have some flavored stuff good for mixing too. Check it out if you are in Gr. Cayman.

Get the rum cakes in there too, cheaper and better than the name brand, right in the back corner of the same little nook shopping square where margaritaville is.

FYI, we bought ours earlier this month in the Grotto. You go down underground a block from where the main shopping center is. They have a small room set up beside the gift shop. They were running a special. If you bought one liter, you got a free $20 rum cake. On top of that, the second bottle was on sale. We bought two BBD light Rum, the first was $14.99, the second was $10, so $24.99 and we got a large $20 Rum Cake that we had to walk back a block to the main shopping center to pick up. Not a bad deal. You can only buy the rum in the kiosk area of the Grotto. If you want the tshirts, glasses, etc, you will need to pay for those in the gift shop area.

How do you all get your liquor home? Obviously, if you drive to the port, that's understandable.

We are flying in from Atlanta, and would love to bring home some rum from our cruise, but are not sure how???

My advice is to go quality over quantity and buy a great bottle of local rum. Ask the store to wrap it up carefully for travel, then pack it in your luggage surrounded by clothing. Don't buy 151 rum - it is banned by TSA.

My sister bought me some a couple of months ago and when she brought it home it was NOT BBD, but something else. They had sent it on to the ship, but somewhere along the way, it got changed, so check your bottles! Just a friendly reminder.

Has anyone had a problem with getting Big Black Dick delivered to the ship.

I seem to recall that you cannot purchase liquor on Grand Cayman and take it with you to the ship. It has to be delivered. And then you don't get it until the last day.

Anyone experience any problems with this?

You do have to have it delivered. Grrrr. We didnt know this and it was too late for us to purchase any. They apparently had the cut off about 1/2 hour before we tried to buy some to get back to the ship.
This was one of my objectives.
I wanted a bottle of Big Black Dick.
Waaaaaaaaaaah!

Oh, and you wont get any liquor until the last evening of your cruise.
