“I love the Islay style and although it is not unusual for me to be found sipping heavy hitters such as Ardbeg or Laphroaig I would count Caol Ila as my “go to” due to its approachable fruity, smoky balance. This Caol Ila gives drifts of iodine, firm peatiness wrapped in a blanket.”

The nose is initially deceptively gentle, offering icing sugar and a light earthy smoke, though time in the glass crescendos the coastal peat showing muscular phenolic character. The palate gives more notes of peat smoke along with damp wool, icing sugar, slight floral notes, and more peat smoke! The finish is unmistakably coastal fading slowly with flavours of kippers, tar and yet more smoke.

This is a limited release of just 311 bottles
