REAL JAMAICAN RUM

The next time you're mixing a rum-and-Coke, think of this:
Hungarian builders who drank their way to the bottom of a huge barrel of rum while renovating a house got a nasty surprise when a pickled corpse tumbled out of the empty barrel, a police magazine website reported.

According to online magazine www.zsaru.hu, workers in Szeged in the south of Hungary tried to move the barrel after they had drained it, only to find it was surprisingly heavy and were shocked when the body of a naked man fell out.

The website said that the body of the man had been shipped back from Jamaica 20 years ago by his wife in the barrel of rum in order to avoid the cost and paperwork of an official return.

According to the website, workers said the rum in the 300-litre barrel had a "special taste" so they even decanted a few bottles of the liquor to take home.

The wife has since died and the man was buried in a proper grave.
Yo ho ho!

I found this blog story interesting . After reading the blog I am really surprised . How after 20 years a man's body was there in a barrel and nobody got a hint of
that? I like to drink rum.But after reading the story I have to think twice before drinking. Rum industry should take precaution .I like to drink liquor with food and cigar. I prefer to Buy Cigars online.
