Port Ellen 1975 Samaroli 23 Year Old
A meeting of two whisky legends, this is a classic Samaroli release of 1975 Port Ellen, bottled in 1996. Samaroli's long-running partnership with R.W.Duthie had ended by this point, and he had begun to have his own company bottle these at Rutherglen in Scotland.
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.
Port Ellen has become increasingly collectible single malt since its closure in 1983.
Bottle number 513 of 744.
