Glenburgie 1962 Samaroli Very Limited Edition
First established as Kilnflat distillery in 1829, the plant became known as Glenburgie in 1871 when it was bought by Charles Hay. After closing down in 1925, it was eventually acquired by Hiram Walker, alongside Miltonduff distillery, as the firm sought to build a portfolio to supply its newly acquired Ballantine's blend. Today the distillery and Ballantine's are still closely linked, so much so that there have been very few distillery bottlings, the most recent being a 15 year old under the George Ballantine & Sons banner, released in 2017. Prior to this, the majority of the rare examples of Glenburgie on the market came in the form of independent releases like this.
This is a single cask from Samaroli, distilled in 1962 and bottled in 1999 from cask #9537.
Samaroli is perhaps Italy's most revered independent bottler of Scotch whisky. With an impeccable taste in single cask whiskies, (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 a considered one fo Samaroli's classic releases, and is one half of a pair that includes a Glenugie of the same vintage. These Very Limited Edition releases also boast a sought after Bowmore and Port Ellen.
Bottle number 116 of 180.
