Millburn 1970 Samaroli 11 Year Old / Flowers 1981
A 1970 vintage bottling from closed Highland distillery, Millburn. Bottled at 11 years of age.
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 Silvano's first ever solo series of bottlings, a follow up to his 1979/1980 collaboration with Cadenhead's. It is rather cumbersomely titled 'The Never Bottled Top Quality Whisky' series, however is better known as the Flowers range. The bottlings all have hand-drawn labels by Samaroli himself, and a second series was released in 1990 as an homage to them.
Bottle number 283 of 300.
