Longrow 1987 Samaroli & Moon Import / Dreams

Moon Import was founded by Pepi Mongiardino in 1980 and he bottled his first whisky in 1982. Always beautifully labelled, Pepi is acclaimed for designing the packaging for Moon Import bottles himself, often using images found in old books. These iconic designs, coupled with the quality of the liquid saw Moon Import steadily grow in popularity. The company is still going strong, and their early releases are some of the brightest gems in any whisky collection.The Dreams series was a 1999 collaborative effort between longtime friends, Mongiardino and Samaroli. The unusually labelled series feature artworks designed by Nadia Pini and Hans Piu, and all bear Silvano Samaroli's signature printed on the capsule.

This Longrow was distilled at Springbank in 1987 and was likely bottled from Samaoli's large stock of this vintage. He was an early champion of the peated Springbank spirit.

The pixelation of the two names on the label is presumed to have been an unfortunate printing error. Mongiardino has personally informed us that Dreams was his favourite series.

Bottle 248 of 967 filled in 1999.
