Longrow Samaroli 'New Filling Malt' / Fragments of Scotland
A very young peated Springbank, referred to by Samaroli as a 'New Filling Malt / British Spirit'. When is reaches full maturity, the peated Springbank expression is known as Longrow, and was first distilled in 1973. The New Filling Malts series was Samaroli's answer to grappa, the popularity of which had always confused him. He believed these under 3 year old single malts were a superior alternative.
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.
The Fragments of Scotland series was bottled in 1988, and each of them feature artworks depicting different elements of Scotland, mostly painted by Samaroli's friend, Agostino Perrnini. This one however is a Cesare Fernicola work.
One of only 648 bottles produced.
