Black Joe Original Jamaica Rum 1970s / ILLVA Import

To see the resurgence of Jamaican rum in recent years it may seem strange to imagine a time when most of it was sold in bulk to be bottled in foreign markets, though until very recently that was how most of the Islands rum was exported. Here we have an example of such a bottling.

A label on the bottle states this has a 1965 vintage, but whether it is original or not is unclear. The bottling date is around the late 1970s so this is unlikely.
