Laphroaig 1988 Samaroli Single Sherry Cask / Coilltean
A single cask Laphroaig from the iconic bottler, Samaroli.
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
Coilltean was originally a label devised by Samaroli to give more variety to his portfolio after over-purchasing cask of Glen Garioch. By the early 2000s he was using many distilleries to bottle Coilltean, and now disclosing their names. These are some of the first releases to bear the contentious "refined in side the bottle since..." text, that the Scotch Whisky Association abhorred, but Silvano full believed in.
Distilled in 1988 and bottled from single Fino sherry puncheon #98/1172 in 2005.
Number 420 of only 582 bottles released.
