Laphroaig 1970 Samaroli 14 Year Old / Osteria Apostoli

A truly legendary, and incredibly rare Laphroaig, bottled by Silvano Samaroli for the Osteria Apostoli, a restaurant that once served the Milanese public. Samaroli bottled several private casks for them, a Macallan, Mortlach, Bowmore, and this famous bottling of Laphroaig

Samaroli is perhaps Italy's most revered independent bottler of Scotch whisky. With an impeccable taste in single cask whiskies, and an eye for aesthetics (if not English spelling at times!), he is regarded by many as a visionary. Many of his bottles now occupy deserved sports on the pantheon of whisky greats.

Distilled in 1970, this was bottled for Samaroli in Aberdeen by R.W. Duthie from cask #4367.

These bottles were hand-authenticated by Silvano himself, and are a real rarity, especially in such good condition as this.
