Papalin Finest Blend
This was the first blended rum ever produced by Italian imported Velier. While awaiting the delivery of their 2012 stock of 12 year old Caroni to be bottled in Scotland, the company decided to create a blend using some of their existing Caroni stock and several other old Cuban and Venezuelan rums from their warehouse.
The blend was allowed to rest for a year and eventually bottled in November 2013.
Velier was founded in Genoa in 1947 as a wine and spirits importer and distributor. They selected their first single cask whiskies in 1992, bottled for them by Signatory Vintage, and have gone on to become one of the most collectible brands in the industry. Luca Gargano's involvement with the company has also positioned them as the one of the foremost authorities and bottlers of collectible rum as well.
