Bruichladdich 1965 Cask Strength 10 Year Old / Samaroli Import

An incredibly rare and interesting bottle of 1965 vintage Bruichladdich.

This is an official distillery bottling for Silvano Samaroli, and represents the genesis of his transition from simple importer, to independent bottler. After a visit to Scotland in the 1970s, Silvano met with the Managing Director of Bruichladdich, a Mr Blake, and after an inspiring discussion, he selected his first two casks for bottling. They were both sherry matured 10 year olds, and this is one of them. His first ever official selection was also 1965 vintage, the rarer of the two (they are all hand-signed). This is from the second cask, bottled shortly after.

Inspired by these releases, Samaroli went on to produce his very first independent bottlings in 1979, a collaboration with Cadenhead's. The rest is history, but it might not have been were it not for this spectacular Bruichladdich.
