    I want to buy a bottle of Old Monk rum which you usually can't find in stores. There are some places I found online saying certain liquor stores have it in stock but most are like an hour away.

    They sell it online but most sites when I enter that I'm from NJ, it then says can't ship there.
    I did find some sites that seem to allow it but I didn't follow through the entire checkout steps to confirm and based on what I read I'm confused if it's allowed or not.

    Some of the sites may or may not be liquor stores also in new jersey if that matters.

    It seems only Wine is allowed to be bought online and delivered in NJ, not beer or spirits?

    was going to edit post out as a 'nevermind' but can't now.
    i'm just gonna order and see what happens, if I can even check out. no big deal.
    I can also see if stores will let me pre buy the old monk, maybe a case of 12 or something is minimum order but ok maybe. Or confirm which stores stock it and make note if I'm ever in the area.

    From the site where I buy my booze from...They are cool with shipping to NJ, so there is that.

    And if you want to pay $44 for shipping(it's international) you can have your rum at your doorstep shortly. $66 all day for one bottle.
    Or you can drive an hour...Cheers

    "like an hour away"

    Does this guy knows where he is? The lengths I've seen some craft beer folks go to get a beverage they want is almost beyond belief and he doesn't want to drive an hour to get something he wants? Get your ass in the car and go pick up a case of that rum.

    Fuck sake.

    Wait til he finds what kind of a crazy asshole I am, making a 10 hour round trip to pick up bottles for other people.
