Glenugie 1980 Samaroli / Agostino Perrini
Distilled in 1980, this is a single malt from Glenugie distillery. It was bottled by R.W. Duthie for Samaroli in 1993 using the same artwork as the Ardbeg from the 1988 series, Fragments of Scotland. The artist was Samaroli's friend, Agostino Perrnini.
Samaroli are 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!), founder Silvano Samaroli is regarded by many as a visionary. Since his passing in 2017, the company has been run by his friend Antonio Bleve, who continues his tradition of high quality releases. Many of Silvano’s early bottlings occupy deserved spots on the pantheon of all-time whisky greats.
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 are highly prized.
