product Details

Jura 1966 Samaroli Natural Strength

A 1966 vintage Jura, bottled by R.W. Duthie for Silvano Samaroli in 1986.

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.

This and its sherry wood counterpart are described by whisky collector and writer, Emmanuel Dron, as the "yin and yang of Isle of Jura 1966."

Both were drawn from single casks, but a mistake by Silvano means both are labelled as being from the same cask number #1943, which cannot be true. It is not known which is correct.

Bottle 55 of 180.
