Product Description

This sensational sherry wood matured malt was distilled in 1964 and bottled by R.W. Duthie & Co. in 1983 as a specially selected import for the iconic Italian bottler and importer, Samaroli.

There has been much discussion and confusion over the origin of this bottle, some believe it was a Glenlivet, others a Glen Ord. Although, perhaps the biggest hint to date comes via a quote from the ‘Collecting Scotch Whisky Encyclopaedia’ by Emmanuel Dron, who states that on the last occasion he met the late Silvano Samaroli he disclosed that it was in fact a 1964 Springbank!

Whatever distillate is inside this ultra rare bottle, it is clear that it doesn’t really matter because the contents have been lauded by many critics; this whisky is in the Top 10 ever rated on Whiskybase and also scored a massive 92pts on WhiskyFun.

One of only 360 bottles that comes in great condition with a fill level well into the neck - see image for fine detail. There will come a day we won’t ever see the likes of this expression again. Truly special.
