Fiji Rum 2001 Samaroli Single Cask #7
A rum from the South Pacific Distillery, produced on the island of Fiji in 2001 before being bottled from select cask #8 in Scotland in 2017. South Pacific operate two pot stills and four column stills, this could be from either, or a combination of the two types.
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 sought after as well.
