Glen Garioch 13 Year Old Samaroli / Handwritten Labels
A 13 year old expression from Highland distillery Glen Garioch. This is likely a 1975 vintage. Samaroli bought many casks from that year, and developed the Coilltean label as a means of bottling it while keeping variety to his output. A similar sentiment has probably been the reason her has opted for an age statement rather than the expected vintage here.
Bottled in 1988 by R. W. Duthie for Samaroli, from Fino sherry casks.
Samaroli is perhaps Italy's most revered independent bottler of Scotch whisky. With an impeccable taste in single cask whiskies, (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.
This is part of the Handwritten Labels series. While Samaroli was famed for his keen eye for aesthetic in designing his own labels, this series simply features his own elegant calligraphy reproduced on them.
Bottle number 238.
