Over the World Samaroli 2016
Over the World is the flagship blended rum of the Samaroli company, and has been for a number of years. Released annually and always incredibly sought after, it is produced using rum taken from every conceivable corner of the globe. This is the second edition, released in 2016. Master blender, Antonio Bleve, took rum from each of the other single casks in that year's catalogue, including some well-regarded releases from Hampden, Uitvlugt and South Pacific.
Samaroli is perhaps Italy's most revered independent bottler of Scotch whisky. With an impeccable taste in single cask whiskies, and an eye for aesthetics (if not English spelling at times!), he is regarded by many as a visionary. Many of his bottles now occupy deserved sports on the pantheon of whisky greats, and their rum output under the tenure of Antonio Bleve is increasingly revered as well.
Bottle 74 of just 230.
