    Ultimately, it is up to the TSA agent. I saw Rum Cream routinely confiscated and I saw some dark rums being confiscated. My only experiences are thru Atlanta. At one time, the tamper evident bags at Sangsters had some black bars along the bottoms....those were rejected too.

    We no longer purchase at Duty Free in Montego Bay. We purchase on island and pack it in our checked bags.

    Seems the agents weren't trained in Atlanta maybe...idk.
    Like you said...it's up to the TSA person. They took my sea salt last time...don't get me started...lol.

    Salt?? Seriously???
    Since we pack our in check bags, I just patiently stand in the TSA line in Atlanta and watch folks try to argue. .

    Speaking of TSA in Atlanta....last fall, I forgot a snack bar in the bottom of my personal bag....I was the lucky one that time having all of my "stuff" removed from my bag and inspected, LOL!!

    We're talking about 2 different things here, Security and Customs. Security only cares about safety, customs may want taxes due.

    Agreed! Declare at customs, but ultimately it is going to be up to that specific TSA agent and I have personally witnessed the confiscations at TSA in Atlanta multiple times.

    Hereís the Canadian scope. You are only allowed one litre returning to Canada. The connecting flight IN Canada,after customs, is the problem. Sometimes the luggage goes on through and we canít get the duty free in a piece checked luggage.
    So I go down to the China Man and buy the equivalent of 1L in those little tiny Mickieís and put them in my checked luggage. They make great gifts and easy to pack going to the camp and going to hotels, etc. And it is the same amount as a 1L, I just redistribute it in my luggage better. Doesnít work out to be any more expensive than duty free.

    I wonder what we'd find in the liquor cabinets at the Atalnta TSA agents' homes. I bet lots of rum cream. (Trying to start a conspiracy theory.)
