Nicaragua Rum 1999 Samaroli

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. 

This is a 1999 vintage blend of three casks, #1, #19 and #23, all distilled in Nicaragua. One of 440 filled in 2014.

The Compania Licorera de Nicaragua distillery (CLDN) was established in 1937 to produce the Flor de Cana rum brand, first bottled in the late 19th century. The distillery was extensively upgraded in 1996 and is one of the most modern rum producing facilities in the world. It operates a three-column continuous still, and the aged rum is laid down for a minimum of four years in American oak casks. The ability of CLDN to continue distilling during the turbulent periods of Nicaraguan history during the 1980s and 1990s means that it has one of the largest stock inventories of aged rum in the world, meaning it can spare a lot of casks for independent labels like this.
