Pacific Oblivion Rum 2018
Samaroli describes this as “one of our classics”, and it’s hard to argue with their assessment. It’s such a breath of fresh air to discover a rum as rich, fruity and intense as this, but that is pretty much bone dry. Sometimes we find that too much sweetness means that you can only have so much of a rum, but that is never a problem with the Pacific Oblivion Rum, you could sip this all night long. Distilled at some secret location somewhere in the Pacific in 2009, it was shipped to Scotland and filled into just 325 bottles. Christmas cake, candlewax, stewed Lapsang Souchong, waxy orange peel, rhubarb, gooseberry, ginger, hay bales and something almost rainforesty; this was our spirits buyers pick of the bunch from Samaroli.
Samaroli is the name on every true spirit connoisseur’s lips. This legendary Italian independent bottler is known for its rare, unique and aesthetically stunning whiskies and rums, many of which smash records at auction. Established as an importer in 1968 by Silvano Samaroli, they became one of the first bottlers to champion cask strength showing how far ahead of the game they are. That’s why the experts at Malt Maniacs and Whisky Fun rank them as their Number 1 bottler. Never afraid to innovate, Samaroli regularly buy casks and re-cask them into new oak to create something completely different to what you might get direct from the distillery. They go as far as to say: “Do not ask us for brand standards and for the same shopping options, it would be like asking a painter to paint always the same painting.” This added value approach coupled with the exceptional quality and eye-catching pastel designs makes every bottle a one-of-a-kind release. Although Silvano sadly passed away in 2017, the mantle has been passed to Antonio Bleve, Francesco Saverio Benetti and their highly passionate team in Rome where their incomparable artistry continues undeterred.
