Highland Park 1988 Samaroli #1185
No (Released without box)
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.
Coilltean was originally a label devised by Samaroli to give more variety to his portfolio after over-purchasing casks of Glen Garioch. By the early 2000s he was using many distilleries to bottle Coilltean, and now disclosing their names. These are some of the first releases to bear the contentious “refined inside the bottle since…” text, that the Scotch Whisky Association abhorred, but Silvano fully believed in.
This is the Highland Park distilled in 1988 and bottled in 2001 from cask number 1185 with an outturn of 384 bottles.
