Ron Centenario Conmemorativo - HOW TO OPEN

I recently acquired this bottle of rum that I cannot figure out how to open. The screw top came off easily however there is this clear plastic inside cap (that the screw cap screws on to) that will not let the precious liquid out. If I break the clear cap, I won't be able to seal the bottle back and may die of alcohol poisoning.

I have searched on the internet and the one suggestion I found had to do with some old "straw" cap. Anyone with experience with this would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise I'm breaking the cap and putting the rum in a decanter

That was my thought too but I have struggled with this thing for a while and it does *NOT* want to pull off it that is even how you do it. The confusing part is that if you DO remove the plastic piece, you can't screw the cap back on because the cap attaches to the plastic piece. This makes me very doubtful that it pulls off. I am leaning more towards being twisted...

I have figured out that the plastic piece CAN be twisted left and right but it only lets out a few drops of the goods. It was pretty damn difficult to break the initial seal since plastic isn't the grippiest of materials and even though I have twisted my heart out, it's still not open. Perhaps I need to pull up and twist, or push down and twist.

There were a few words on the cap that I punched into the google: plastivac barcelona. which appears to be some kind of cap that prevents refilling the bottle with different liquid. The rum is from Costa Rica so perhaps a problem there? At any rate, it serves the dual purpose of preventing the liquor from coming out as well.

I have a bottle of Buchanan's scotch that has what sounds like a similar device. Hold it upside down (over your glass) and shake gently back and forth, and it should start coming out at a decent rate.

It was very frustrating until I figured that out.

You sir... Genius!

Thank you kindly. I inversed the bottle, gave it a shake and it started pouring like a dream.

Thanks again, that cap was close to meeting its fate

1. Snap the neck of the bottle on the edge of a countertop.

2. Guzzle bottle.

It is that simple.

I have to say, spuffin's posting style would not be adverse to the benefit of the more perspicuous members of the online discussion forum known as DVD Talk.

That bottle looks small enough that you should be able to polish it off for breakfast - I wouldn't worry about resealing it.
