Second Edition of the full grade bottling’s little brother.
Less austere in manner, it displays a mixture of diffidence and curiosity, like a child who’s had an
intuition or just made a discovery. The blending of different malts allows a whisky’s body to be
supported by a number of columns and, consequently, to alternate aromas in a way that may seem
erratic, but has the brushstrokes of an artist in the grip of creative inspiration: they can be
delicate and captivating or nervous and irascible. It opens up a world of scents and aromas to us.


Samaroli today…
After a long time of collaboration between Bleve’s family and Silvano Samaroli, in 2008 after a period of internship Antonio Bleve , always in love with Silvano Samaroli and his philosophy , with courage slowly took over in commercial management and in production of Samaroli.
A challenge that takes time and tenacity, a bet every time launched to the market of the great spirits, more and more exclusive and competitive. It is always exciting to look for the great spirits and to discover the best lot, to evaluate the  assembly methods, the maturation timing, the aging, the gradations, similarities and differences. A job more and more addictive for us, only at the end of it we can consider our whiskhy, our rum, our labels , our brand suitable for you.

Where we come from….
I met Silvano Samaroli the first time when I was child. He is the first non-British breeder and bottler of the greatest whiskhies . He introduced me to the world of the artisan producers of the Highlands and small north Atlantic islands. A little world, unreachable and inaccessible in which are produced the most precious and rare spirits.
And thanks to his enormous knowledge, thanks to his taste and his passion, tasting after tasting, barrel after barrel, Samaroli becames a world landmark of great malts of Scotland and Rum from the most exotic and extreme origins.
From 2008 to now it has been an intense period . Period in which we were rebuilding the network of trade relations. There have been some missteps that have helped us to grow and to learn more about the world.
The road is always difficult and uphill when quality is the ultimate goal and ethics and morality are the cardinal points. Let’s say that we measured our mentality with worlds and markets that had never been explored and pioneering spirit.
Assisted by the workaholic and fearless Francesco Saverio Binetti, now I can brag that our “jewels” are in the most important windows and behind the most prestigious counters in Italy and in 20 countries on all continents.

Where we go…
Our team now sees the synergy of Federica’s experience, the passion and the desire to grow of Daniele and Davide . I am convinced that, with the collaboration and support of our customers, our fans, our partners, our suppliers and all those who have joined the Samaroli’s world, we will win the major challenge wich is to be proud of our folly in a world where the great become great and where little is cut of.
We don’t want to appear different from what we are but we want to be present. We aspire to be your loyal travel and testing mate.
We simply ask you to remember us when you discover our products, when you savor the scents, the flavors, the taste, the flavor …

The oldest road of rum
Rum that comes from over the ocean, along a three centuries and two thousand miles’s road.
Tropical rum that starts from the oldest and most prosperous plantations, big as small state of rich landowner and (former) slaves.
The most intense and rich molasses reach Scotland, where is putted in barrels more suitable and capable to take the ultimate taste and natural color of the most noble and sincere woods.

The World
It seemed a mission impossible: to offer an Italian company able to select in Scotland the best whiskies or in the Caribbean the best
distilled from sugar cane.
Even this challenge has been fought and won: since 2009 we are present at least in 20 countries, among them significant markets such as the US, Hong Kong, Japan. For us, having established increasingly productive and trust relationships with our partners, more  careful to look at the quality and craftsmanship of the products, rather than the pure marketing of luxury products, has always been and it is a real honor, a true satisfaction.

Notes de dégustation

Samaroli – Small Batch blend – Over an Islay Rainbow
Distilled : – – Bottled : 2017 – Cask : –  Alcool : 55,1% – 260 bottles 
The blend is composed by : 1992 Bunnahabhain sherry & 2009 Laphroaig
(same compositions as the Ferry to Islay but on 45%)

An olfactory rainbow. Dried flowers, old wardrobes and memories of childhood.
I must say, I detect worldly aromas that are very intense and not at all commonplace.
Smoked, or rather, burnt notes…yes, that’s it… the embers of a summer bonfire when you’re so
deep in conversation with friends that you forget to mind the fire. On the palate it unfolds like a
dream, letting you savour it fully and appreciate what it has to say. Yes, there is another Islay…
which had been hidden from us until now. The fog clears, our doubts finally vanishing along with
it… Land appears from the fading mist. Our eyes look heavenwards, thanking divine providence,
and then look to the stars, simply to gaze at them.
“And thence we came forth to see again the stars…”
Inferno XXXIV, 139 – Divine Comedy 1306-1321 – Dante Alighieri
