Macallan 1971 Samaroli Sherry Wood / Curved Distillery Label

An incredible vintage bottling of Macallan in Samaroli's classic 'Curved Distillery Name' label style. This is one of three Macallan bottled in this style between 1992 and 1995, including a 1977 vintage and a private cask bottling for a Mr A. Bleve in Rome. All are highly sought after.

This was bottled in 1995 from two sherry casks, #16 and #17. This is an early example of a Samaroli bottling actually filled by Silvano's own company, as his long-running contract with R.W. Duthie in Aberdeen had ended not long before.

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 spots on the pantheon of whisky greats.

Bottle 97 of just 540.
