Silvano Samaroli’s bottling of a Sherry cask-matured Laphroaig from 1967 remains a milestone in the history of independent bottling and one of the Italian’s early masterpieces. In June 1967 a parcel of Sherry casks was filled with Laphroaig new make spirit. The workers at the Islay distillery would have thought little of it at the time – and the notion that the whisky matured in those same casks would go on to be regarded as some of the best created. The casks ended up in the ownership of independent bottler William Cadenhead. One in particular was bottled, at 15 years old, by the Duthie’s subsidiary, and ended up being labelled and imported by one Silvano Samaroli from Italy.

The bottling would go on to embed itself profoundly in the collective psyche of whisky enthusiasts – both those lucky enough to taste it, and those who wished they had.

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
