Tormore 1966 Samaroli Sherry Wood / Silver Cap

An incredible example of Speyside single malt from a not-often bottled distillery at the time. This is a 1966 vintage Tormore, bottled for Silvano Smaroli by longtime partners, R.W. Duthie of Aberdeen in 1982.

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.

This is part of the three bottle, much sought after Silver Cap series that also includes a 27 year old Glen Grant and a release many consider the finest whisky ever committed to bottle, the 1967 Laphroaig.

All three bottles in the series are sherry wood matured. Whisky author and owner of Singapore's Auld Alliance bar, Emmanual Dron, describes this as "a sherry moster!", while Serge Valentin of WhiskyFun scored in 95 points.

Bottle number 429.
