Samaroli Evolution 2012 Edition

Country: Scotland


Type: Blended Malt

Bottler: Samaroli

ABV: 45%

Score: 97 Points

Samaroli of Italy has tweaked this malt over the years, with whiskies going back to a 1957 Mortlach in the blend. This is the final version of Evolution, and the nose is amazingly nectar-smooth with floral touches, hints of hazelnut, allspice, coconut, baked apples, and subtly complex. The taste is smooth, rich, and buttery with a nice crescendo of subtle spices balanced well by dried fruits, raisin, and coconut notes. The finish is long, smooth, and slow to fade with wonderful spices. Outstanding!
