Rare bottle of blended scotch whiskey No Age Declared Masam, bottled in 2016 by Masam and marketed by Moon Import in 2017 only following manual corrections of the labels and abrasion of the bottom of the bottle.
These corrections, the abrasions to cover the Singles of Silvano Samaroli brand make these few first Masam bottlings unique pieces ...
No-age Declare is a harmonious blend of malt whiskeys aged 12 to over 49 years in special sherry casks and oak barrels.
The single malts used are produced exclusively by Scotland's latest artisanal distilleries.
The Blended Scotch whiskey No-age couveè 2016 was produced a year before his death.
Silvano's technique was followed, the blended made the original alcohol reduction in 12 months, as it was used in the 19th century.
A small percentage of water is added to it so that it is absorbed without shock.
Every two or three months the matches are reassembled.
Currently this practice has been abandoned because it is too expensive and allows to produce very limited quantities, only 1248 bottles, this is number 104.
For this reason Samaroli is perhaps the most revered independent Scotch whiskey bottler in Italy.
With an impeccable taste in single cask whiskeys and an eye for aesthetics (if not English spelling and geography sometimes!).
Considered by many to be a visionary, his selections are among the best whiskeys in the world.
Samaroli was considered by many to be a visionary, his selections are among the best whiskeys and rums in the world.
Since his death in 2017, the tradition has been lovingly continued by Masam, the bottling company run by his wife, Maryse Accorsi Samaroli.
Many of his bottles now occupy well-deserved slots in the pantheon of whiskey greats.
After having ceded the reigns of the Samaroli company to Antonio Bleve in 2008, the heirs, following in the footsteps of the great Silvano, began to bottle barrels they selected with the Masam brand.
It will be the death of Silvano Samaroli, in 2017, and the subsequent disagreements and problems born between Bleve, Maryse and Moon import for the management of the Samaroli brand to dictate the abrasions and corrections of these bottles of the first and only edition.
