Another Samaroli bottle expected to smash records

Whisky Auctioneer has announced that a “classic” bottling from Silvano Samaroli, a Laphroaig 1967 15-year-old Sherry Wood, is going up for sale this month and will likely break all known records.

The bottle will be auctioned as part of an online sale that begins on 27 July and will last until 6 August.

The last time a bottle of the same sort went up for sale was in 2014, when it made £5,700. In a mark of just how much the rare malt market has exploded since then, it is expected to realise £25,000 this time around.

Bottled by the famed Samaroli, just 720 bottles of the 1967 Laphroaig were produced and it is widely considered one of the great Scotch whiskies and an extraordinary crown jewel for any collector.

The announcement follows swiftly on from the news that another rare bottling from Samaroli, a Bowmore 1966 ‘Bouquet’, made over £50,000 in a sale last month.

Sean McGlone, director at Whisky Auctioneer, said: “The Laphroaig 1967 Samaroli is a true monument in the world of whisky. Countless whisky connoisseurs across the world who have been lucky enough to try a dram consider it the best, most flawless whisky of all time.

“The interest in this should be huge, but now even more so as, following on from our recent auction of the Bowmore 1966 Bouquet, it is another unique opportunity to own one of Silvano Samaroli’s most fantastic and lauded whiskies, with this bottle even signed by the master himself.”
