product Details

West Indies Dark Rum 1948 Samaroli

Samaroli is perhaps Italy's most revered independent bottler of Scotch whisky, but he produced some outstanding rum as well. According to Emmanuel Dron's Collecting Scotch Whisky, of all the alternative spirits to whisky, which included cognac and armagnac as well, this very rum is the one he was most proud of.

Although the company has put more of a focus on rum under the watch of Silvano's successor, Antonio Bleve, rum from the era of Samaroli himself is less prominent and often spectacular when it does appear.

This was distilled in the Caribbean in 1948, and was impressively aged before bottling in 1991.

This is one of 800 bottles .
