The final whisky project worked on by the late Silvano Samaroli, completed after his death by his wife Maryse. It's a vatting of a pair of casks from Samaroli's own private stocks, each distilled in 1967. It's a complex whisky, bringing together tropical fruit, nuts, tobacco, herbal notes, rich tea and well-controlled oak. A masterpiece worth of Silvano Samaroli's high standards.

    • Nose

      Some could have become a little tea-ish and slightly over-oaky, but that’s not the case at all here, it’s still very fresh and very vibrant. A wonderful fruit salad, with the usual apples and bananas, but also mangos, papayas, and a hoppy touch (more IPA than lager, mind you). Some praline then, and a growing cigary side. Or rather proper Virginia cigarettes. Totally lovely and rather delicate.

    • Mouth

      There is a little oak but it’s of the greater kind, rather on the camphory side if you will. Some soft mint cordial, touches of myrtle liqueur, then our friendly green bananas, various apples and even pears, oranges, and this light yet deep tobacco-y side. Then a little cedar wood, cinnamon, and Darjeeling tea. Strength and body are both perfect.

    • Finish

      This is where a 50-yo whisky should feel over-oaked, but once again, balance has been preserved and the fruits are still singing. More Darjeeling in the aftertaste, earl grey...

    • Comments

      It’s not even a little fragile, mind you. Pace, here’s to you Silvano (and Maryse).
