Just out of curiosity does anyone know the two red capped rums on the cover?

I don't see two red-capped bottles, but if you'll send a picture I can probably identify it.

I can just about make out "J Wray & Nephew" at the top of the label.

My cover is just a close up of a barrel (or just wood)with "Rum" stamped on it in white paint.

My cover is the same as the one I posted above except the label seems to be blurred to become unreadable.

My copy has a pub date of 2003.
