After looking at a couple of auctions I noticed that Samaroli-bottlings tend to get a high price. How come? Are they that good or just rare? Maybe both?

Samaroli generally speaking made good bottles, some of them really legendary(springbanks full proof, glegarioch sherry wood 60's laphroaigs and a bunch of others).
They're really expensive from the start, I mean when they came out for selling are high prized and usually the number of bottles is limited.
So when a bottle is very good is also rare and also high prized from the start.

This is the reason why they fetch high prices, and take in considerations that in rare cases, when the bottle has no great reputation due the lacking of reviews(and maybe is very good)some times at auctions you can get them at good price.
