A terrific Caol Ila whisky from Gordon & MacPhail’s Connoisseurs Choice range.
A well aged dram, this whisky was distilled in 1996, and bottled on the 23rd of January 2020, having been aged in a single refill sherry butt for 23 years.
The result is a elegantly peated, fruity and delicious dram. Drinkers can expect flavours of fruitcake, grassy peat, orange juice, dark chocolate, bacon, espresso, forest fruits, oak and charred malt.
Bottled at an intense cask strength of 58.3% ABV and without chill filtration or colouration, this is a full, satisfying dram.
Just 519 bottles were produced.
