Candid Wine & Spirits, 494-500 Washington Street, North Haven is one of the first liquor stores in Connecticut to stock Don Papa Rum, a small-batch, super-premium rum from the Philippines. It’s definitely pricey, at $39.99 for Don Papa 7, and $69 for the 10 Year. But the molasses-based rum sounds like it just might be worth it, boasting notes of vanilla, honey, and candied fruit.
