Anyone know anything about this

Drinkup NY had their email stating they released this

    Dapuma, Rum Bar (PHX) has a bottle of this.

      $5000 is a little out of my price range.

        Tasting notes: oak, oak, and more oak. (Well I'm paraphrasing, but that's about what the press release said, and 50 years in oak is 50 years in oak.)

        Probably not an amazing rum experience, although it will almost certainly be an exceptional brown liquor experience. I can't imagine J. Wray putting out an inferior product at that level.
