Father's Day inspiration for the non foodie. Why not consider a unique bottling of our 8 Year Old Caol Ila Single Islay Malt Whisky 46% in our handsome 700ml Cubana bottle? We can even personalize the bottle with a message for you? Caol Ila is now in our blood, although we have really struggled acquire first class casks of this much loved single malt. This particular single cask malt is from Cask No. 304640, filled in 2004 and limited originally to approximately 275 bulk litres. It took over a year to secure, so appreciate this single malt whisky while you still can!
What is is like to sniff and sip?
This cask has the pedigree of a delightful traditional Islay Malt. It has a definite peaty note to taste, and of course that wonderful smoky hint at the finish. It is the smoky hint, that can be likened to burnt grass or smoked meats, that gives Caol Ila its distinctive identity and this 8 Year Old has bags of it!
Anything else I should know?
We have stocked Caol Ila since our opening day in July 2004. Its tremendous popularity mean that we have continued with it ever since, always bottling from a single cask of our very own. We are sure that this Malt will bring hours of post prandial enjoyment, let us know what you think?
Any more interesting things?
Caol lla is the Gaelic name for the Sound of Islay, which separates the island from Jura in one of the most remote and beautiful parts of Scotland's West Coast. The distillery sits on a wild and picturesque cove, near Port Askaig. The barley used here is still malted locally at Port Ellen and pure spring water still rises from limestone in nearby Loch nam Ban, then falls to the sea at Caol Ila in a clear crystal stream, just as it always has. Their offspring is a fine-ageing malt reserved in oak casks for up to eighteen years.
