Samaroli / Islay Blended Malt / 750
A very small batch of smokey malts from only Islay distilleries. One of only 390 bottles!
Silvano Samaroli is one of the great figures in the Scotch world. Born in Bologna, Silvano quickly established himself as one of the few non-British persons selecting and bottling great scotches, issuing his first Samaroli Scotch in 1968. His process is simple in theory but difficult in practice: tasting malt after malt, often at cask strengths of more than 50% abv. Relying on his keen understanding of the Byzantine world of Scottish malt distilleries, Silvano selects individual casks to bottle under his own label.
