Guadeloupe Rum 1998 Samaroli Single Cask
Best known for its French style agricole rums, this is actually a molasses-based offering from the island of Guadeloupe.
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.
Bottled in 2018 from cask #2, this is bottle 292 of 330.
