Glenugie 1966 Samaroli Very Limited Edition

A well-regarded distillery in its time, Glenugie was primarily tasked with providing single malt for the Long John blends. Oversupply in the 1980s saw it close, along with many others, in 1983. The distillery has long since been dismantled, with its stock and brand name under ownership of Chivas Brothers. Despite this, there have been very few official bottlings, and those from independents like this are highly prized.  

This is a very rare bottling by Samaroli. This incredibly rare Glenugie is not often seen at auction, unsurprising as only 108 bottles were released in 1999 from single cask #5822. This is part of a series of Very Limited Editions that includes a sought after Bowmore and Port Ellen.

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.
