Laphroaig 1969 Sestante for Il Carato 19 Year Old / Flowers

A very rare Ardbeg bottled by famous Italian bottlers, Sestante, for Ristorante il Carato, an enoteca in the town of Brescia. This is part of the ornately labelled Flowers series.

Distilled in 1969 and matured in sherry wood.

Ardbeg from this period is so hard to come by these days, and it is well worth investigating these older bottlings, even more so when they are from bottlers such as Sestante.

The Sestante import company was founded in the 1970s by Ernesto Mainardi, and he bottled his first single casks under the name in 1985. Alongside his contemporary, Silvano Samaroli, Mainardi pioneered giving his customers a choice of both standard 40-46% bottlings, and cask strength releases from the same casks. Along with his other brand, Silver Seal, Mainardi's bottlings are incredibly sought after.
