"History in a Bottle?"


Recommended Posts

Hello, all -

Some whisky friends and I were chatting last night and one asked if I'd ever tried a rum he called "History in a Bottle." I'm told the label says it's from the West Indies (nothing more specific), that it was distilled on 9/18/40, and was bottled in 1993 by Thompson and Co., Glasgow. A web search turned up a rum for sale (at a German online retailer) described as "British Navy Rum 1940 (History in a bottle), 40%." I'm intrigued by this and would appreciate any additional info, good or bad. Thanks much!



Where there's a still, there's a way.
