Islay single malt scotch whisky

This whisky was distilled in 2008 and spent the last 18 months of maturation in two sherry butts taken from a solera. The old wood has imparted a dusty, spicy note that plays well against the salt and brine found in Caol Ila’s spirit. Only 1206 bottles were produced.

Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Dusty dark chocolate, charcoal smoke and buttered currants. Winter-punch spice is balanced by fresher, greener notes of nettle and elderflower.
  • Palate

    Mouth coating and dense, with rich Morello cherries in a thick sweet sauce – the perfect balance of sweet and sour. The peat is herbaceous, reminiscent of aged Chartreuse, and is followed by notes of bitter chocolate.
  • Finish

    Cocoa nibs and Arbroath smokies linger.
