Blair Athol 1989 Samaroli Single Cask
This is a single cask bottling from Blair Athol distillery, "the heart of bell's"! This was bottled in Scotland in November 2007 from cask #4812.
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 abhored, but Silvano full believed in.
Bottle 46 of 364.
