  1. Hi Alan,

    Many thanks for your message and I hope you enjoy your upcoming visit to Dili! Unfortunately I am not too sure if Black Rock is still there. I wrote this post in 2014 about our visit, so things may have changed since then. Sorry I cannot be of more help, however maybe try to find a forum or expat Facebook group – they might be able to help.

  3. Thanks George, I am glad you enjoyed the post. I didn’t realise about the customs tag, that’s a great tip! If we get to travel again at some point (fingers crossed), I’ll be sure to keep this tip in mind 🙂

  4. Useful post! In some other warm countries such as Colombia, there’s luckily a customs tag with the customs processing date on each bottle and that also helps to find the freshest bottles in the shop. It’s still a bit of a gamble, tho!

  5. Thanks for popping by the blog! It was definitely an interesting experience in Dili. Sorry, I can’t quite remember how the prices were!
