Another excellent young whisky, bottled by the good folk at the Ultimate Whisky Company.
This time round it is a bottling from Islay behemoth distillery, Caol Ila!
Distilled on the 25th of September 2007 and bottled on the 14th of January 2016, this whisky was allowed to mature in a former Bourbon oak barrel (Cask number 315312) for 8 years.
As such, it is a young, spritely and powerful Caol Ila, with plenty of typical grassy green peat, vanilla fudge and juicy stone fruit.
The flavours are given a big boost as the whisky is bottled at 46% ABV, and without either chill filtration or artificial colouration.
A delightful little dram, this is a whisky that really lets the drinker get to grips with the house style of this distillery. Just 327 bottles were produced.
