SAMAROLI Demerara Rum 2007
A rare single cask rum from a top-secret distillery in Guyana distilled in 2007 and matured slowly in the far cooler climate of Scotland. Cask No. 5868 yielded just 381 bottles each one a herbal delight alive with oregano eucalyptus and pine resin. This minty zing combines with dusty cocoa kola nut and bewitching spices to dazzling effect. Although a sweeping generalisation Demerara rums are usually rich and smoky with a dark caramel character. However the maturation in Scotland seems to have imparted a freshness onto this Samaroli bottling that’s quite unique.
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.
