Official tasting notes.
“Vanilla, sugar cane, leather and tobacco emerge, complement each other thanks to the thirty-three years of aging. Those who “face” this bottle must arm themselves with patience and imagination. Indeed, the development and numerous intermediate details the glass will be able to give to those who they will have the patience to “listen” and the ability to dream”

As we’re strictly a whisk(e)y retailer, it would have to take something seriously ‘out of this world’ for us to deviate from this ethos, however, it’s not every day that a product touches our lips that changes the game of what a spirit can be….. Then along came two Samaroli Rums. This 32-year-old Demerara, and an aged, blended Demerara (also available on our virtual shelves) that simply whacked us for 6 as far as rums go and we simply knew we had to stock them both and share the love.
Samaroli tells us:
“We are proud to have brought this barrel to port which is truly a unique and unobtainable specimen. Guyana, the most cosmopolitan country in South America inherited from the colonial age that hosts practically all the methods of distillation and aging that combined together have resulted in a great variety of styles. On the banks of the Rio Demerara there are various plants that produce the homonymous Demerara rums considered a separate category by all fans of the world.
By now there are many bottlings that we have seen born, every year we find ourselves in facing a discovery. Evolution refines and completes the characteristics, aromas and flavours that we find are more mature and complete in our rums. Scotland, which hosted and watched over the rest of this extraordinary rum, transformed a Caribbean spirit into a broad heritage with complex aromatic concentration”
Samaroli is an Italian Independent bottler that was founded by Silvano Samaroli 1968, that select, age and refine premium spirits, from the greatest scotch whisky malts, to rum and other exotic drops. The elegance, balance, complexity, finesse and depth of flavour of Samaroli whiskies are without rival with a limited production of only 12,000 to 14,000 bottles per year in total.
All Demerara rum is distilled in Guyana, regardless of where it may be aged and bottled. The rum is derived from sugarcane grown along the banks of the Rio Demerara.
