Highland Park 1986 Samaroli Single Cask / Coilltean
A single cask Highland Park 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 casks 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 inside the bottle since..." text, that the Scotch Whisky Association abhorred, but Silvano fully believed in.
Distilled in 1986 and bottled from single cask #2291 in 2007.
Number 214 of only 346 bottles released.
