Caol Ila matured for 31 years in casks: a truly selection. Predominant medicinal and iodine nose, but nevertheless well amalgamated in an overall aromatic structure that supports and accompanies it. Medicinal herbs, vanilla, leather and liquorice in the background complete the expression. Remarkably persistent on the palate, where the typical Islay saltiness predominates.

Caol Ila (Gaelic for "Sound of Islay” and pronounced Cool EELA) was founded in 1846 by Hector Henderson. The distillery was not successful and in 1854 changed hands, when it was bought by Norman Buchanan, owner of the Isle of Jura Distillery. In 1863 the company was bought by Bulloch Lade & Co. of Glasgow and since 1880 over 147,000 litres of whisky have been produced every year. After various other changes in ownership, Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd. purchased 100% of the company in 1930. Closed during World War II, production continued afterwards until 1972, when the entire distillery was demolished. A larger distillery was built in the original architectural style and production began again in 1974.

Producer
To talk about the new corporate structure of Samaroli Srl, it is necessary to start from the history of the Bleve family, which begins in 1970. When they arrived in Roma from southern Italy's Salento region, Anacleto and Tina opened the first wine and oil shop in the Jewish ghetto in via Santa Maria del Pianto. Their shelves' contents immediately seemed different from those of the city's other wine shops. Anacleto was one of the first to select and offer his customers great wines from France and Piedmont, and above all great spirits; This is how Anacleto met Silvano and his Selections back in 1974 With the help of sons and nephews, in 1982 the Bleves opened the first wine bar, integrating the period's classic wine shop format with tasting sessions of selected cold cuts and cheeses from all over Italy. Anacleto's shop thus became a reference point on the Rome scene and a crossroads for all lovers of the Eternal City and many others; the venue was so successful that in 1999 Marchesi dè Frescobaldi entrusted the Bleve family the management of the Frescobaldi Wine Bar opened at Rome's Fiumicino airport. There are now three wine bars: in terminals 1B, 3C and 3H. In 2002, Casa Bleve is a venue in which Anacleto combines all his ideals of hospitality, quality and selection; in fact, the old shop's format has been integrated with ample areas in which to host events, a larger kitchen and the launch of private wine cellars, located in an extraordinary setting that includes a wall dating back to 1 AD, attributed to the famous Stagnum Agrippae and restored thanks to the passion and patience of the family itself. As already mentioned, the collaboration with Silvano S. began in the seventies, when Anacleto decided to abandon the famous brands of that period and concentrate on Absolute Quality. Surprisingly, the number of enthusiasts grew to the point that Anacleto purchased casks directly, and - from 1988 to 2003 – he bottled approximately thirty, selling them en première (the first time this formula had been experimented in Italy with spirits). The choice of the Bleves was: to give continuity to the Samaroli project, as shareholders in the company, along with investors who were also passionate admirers of the Samaroli Selections, the natural continuation of what has already been said.
