    DESCRIPTION

    Part of the Diageo Special Releases Collection 2014.


    A limited edition, natural cask strength single malt from Caol Ila, an active Isle of Islay distillery. This is a rare limited release of extra-mature Caol Ila and is the oldest bottle ever released by the original distillers.


    Diistilled in 1983 and matured in refill American Oak & European Oak, there are only 7,638 bottles available worldwide.


    Harvest gold in colour. A mellow nose, with a big phenolic impact – both medicinal (antiseptic, medicine cupboard) and smoky (distant wood-smoke), and after a while a sweet scent of toasted marshmallows, burnt toffee. Soon the phenols fade, to be restored only slightly with a drop of water. A big, oily mouthfeel, with billows of smoke. Sweet overall, with a trace of salt and a long smoky aftertaste.

    KNOWLEDGE BAR
    The Caol Ila Distillery was established in 1846 on the coast near Port Askaig on the island of Islay, by Hector Henderson. Caol Ila means "Sound of Islay" in Gaelic. A waterfall supplied power for barley hoists and pressure for fire hydrants. Until the late 1950s Caol Ila brought barley and sent its casks to market from Islay's remote shores on M.V. Pibroch, a traditional island coaster or "Puffer" boat.
