O'Riley Jamaican Rum Cream
Hi I have a bottle of O'Rileys Jamaican Rum Cream, that we bought in Jamaica in February of 2008 or 2009.
Do you happen to know if it would be any good now, or not? It has not been opened and has been stored in the dark at room temperature. I wouldn't want to sicken anyone! Thanks!

I just spoke to someone in the sales office of one of the local distributors.
I was told that generally, the shelf life on Rum Creams is about 18 months. So for you, if you bought it in 2008, then clearly it may not be safe for consumption, however, if 2009 then you may have a month or two in the safety window, depending on the actually production date.
By the way, I learned too that rums, in general, don't expire! In fact, it is used to preserve some products. I hope that helps.
