Caol Ila 1968 Samaroli Full Proof
A fantastic Italian import bottling of Caol Ila, distilled in 1968, prior to the expansion in the early 1970s. This is the only Samaroli bottling from the old version of the distillery ans ia highly sought after.
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.
Silvano's early bottlings were filled for him in Scotland by R.W. Duthie, a relationship that lasted until the early 1990s. They bottled this in 1982.
Bottle number 577.
