Quite possibly, the oldest Caol Ila ever bottled: 40 long years maturing in a refill hogshead. Older Caol Ilas can be quite stunning; the peat recedes and the quality of the spirit shines through. Extremely limited. Just 206 bottles exist globally. 54.6% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.

Notes from the bottlers... Nose: Expect immediately oceanic, West Coast of Scotland character, with enticing yet subtle phenols coming through. Palate: The palate reveals leather, malted barley, spices and a honey-glazed smoked meat quality. Finish: The finish is exceptional, with more peat smoke, dried citric fruits and oak bonfire embers.
