1999 Brasil by Samaroli
The Rum: Brasil 1999 by Samaroli – 45 abv
Distilled: 1999. There’s no indication on the distillery. Could it be Epris? Only a wild guess…
Bottled: 2011, 240 bottles (cask 22-25/46-50)
Nose: this must be the Clynelish amongst rums. It starts with this very greasy wax notes. Cherries and a whiff of grapefruit too.
Taste: sweet without ever becoming too sweet or sticky. Cherries on alcohol, red fruits. Some hints of tropical fruits. White flowers and warming spices
Finish: sweet cherry candy, with the very long finish evolving slowly towards a fine bitterness from the wood.
Our Score : ****
Remarks: this Brazilian beauty was sold for around €90, but now almost impossible to find.
