    Dedicated to now retired distillery manager, Billy Stitchell, this honours his 39 years at Caol Ila, following in the footsteps of four previous generations of his family. Matured in American Oak, rejuvenated American Oak and ex-bodega European Oak casks. This year it's been bottled without an age statement.

    Other reviews... Caol Ila in unpeated guise. There’s no age statement, but what you get is a mix of the fresh and the mature: a vibrant attack with fresh Victoria plum, grapes, and a hint of oiliness. Give it time and the sensation is like afternoon tea at your auntie’s, with thickly-buttered scones dripping with honey or pineapple jam. The palate is equally sweet and gentle, and only needs a little drop of water to reveal light spice. A wee beauty. 89 points - www.maltadvocate.com (Spring 2014) Reviewed by: Dave Broom
