Samaroli by Samaroli 2009 Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
....for the third consecutive bottling we are delighted to announce the arrival of a baby brother for our blends. A little 8-year-old that's implacably curious and headstrong. By now we have our own indelible trademark which, even with this new release, offers a very clean, clear nose. The unripe bouquet has scents and tones of fresh grass and meadow flowers. In the glass, aromas of straw, hay and freshly ground cereals. Like all youngsters, it has no patience, thus the elegant tones of bergamot, sesame and mint, but also spicy and medicinal notes vie immediately for dominance, leaving us somewhat seduced and abandoned as we savour the spicy aftertaste with ginger and mothballs muscling in. That mix of excitement and fear in the pit of your belly when you leave home on your first solo journey… the particular feeling of those setting off to explore who knows what, who knows where? Of those sailing towards love, perhaps? Of those who have lost everything buying and selling? Or of those who leaving or fleeing for or from heaven-knows-which war…
"Born into the world like rabbits… set off for the world as soldiers and yet to return…."
