"...The mashbox gave me a spiritual whiskey experience. With such bold personalities in each container, it was hard to not be extremely pleased each time I decided to try a new one...

Born in Bologna seventy years ago, Silvano Samaroli has been selecting and bottling the world’s greatest Scotch whiskies since 1968. At that time he was the only non-British or non-Scottish person doing so. Having begun with Scotch, years later he began choosing rums from some of the world’s best rum distilleries and then transporting them to Scotland for maturation. His story is that of a fanatic – an entrepreneur with an almost savant-like knowledge and palate of the world’s finest Scotch whiskies. His focus was on selecting and bottling interesting, single cask whiskies from Scotland. But what set him apart was that when he chose a cask of whisky, he would re-cask the whisky into new (or virgin) oak to add considerable layers of depth to what one would find in a regular single malt bottling. Samaroli Whisky is made from single malts and vatted (blended malts) whisky; Samaroli rums are made from single casks and blend rums. Maturation for the Whiskies and Rums are carried out in Scotland, where the climate (cooler than in the Caribbean with regard to the rums) enables longer aging and consequently cleaner, clear-cut and more elegant spirits. The elegance, balance, complexity, finesse and depth of flavor of Samaroli spirits are without rival.
