    What.. They put the price up? It’s $38 everyday at BWS and Dan Murphy’s are normally $35.. That makes no sense if they’re now more expensive when it’s not on special than their sister brand..

    Edit: Saying that, the Captain Morgan Black Spiced rum is 45 currently, that’s an awesome rum. The gold is great too, especially for a cheap under $40 kinda thing.
