Clynelish 2004 Masam Silvano's Collection Expression / Moon Import
The Silvano’s Collection label is produced by Masam, an independent bottling company run by Maryse Accorsi Samaroli, the wife of the legendary Silvano Samaroli. The Samaroli firm has been run by Antonio Bleve since 2008, however casks from Silvano's private collection have also been bottled under the Singles of Silvano Samaroli banner. These were initially supervised by the man himself, but since his death in 2017, the tradition has been lovingly continued by his wife.
This is a 2004 vintage Clynelish, drawn from cask #800101. One of 340 bottles filled in 2018. The cask was selected from Silvano's collection jointly by Maryse and Pepi Mongiardino of the legendary Italian distirbutors and contemporary of Samaroli, Moon Import.
Clynelish distillery as it is recognised today, was built in 1967 to replace the smaller distillery next-door, which was the original site of that name. The first distillery was closed, but later re-opened, changing its name to Brora (but that’s another story). Clynelish is part of the Diageo stable, having been taken over by DCL in 1912. Despite being an important part of the Johnnie Walker blends, it has long been bottled as a single malt.
