Longmorn 1974 Samaroli Natural Strength Sherry Wood

A legendary independent bottling of heavily sherried Longmorn, distilled in 1974 and bottled for Silvano Samaroli by R.W. Duthie in 1985 at cask strength.

This particular bottling was rated very good by Serge Valentin who scored it an impressive 92 points!

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.

Emmanuel Dron, Samaroli's great friend is a big fan of this release. There is a similarly labelled (but much lighter in colour) 1964 vintage from new wood that Dron describes as the "Yin and Yang of Longmorn."

Bottle number 332 of only 600.
