A top notch Caol Ila bottling from Signatory Cask Strength, bottled for their Cask Strength Collection.
Distilled on the 22nd of September 2010 and bottled on the 3rd of June 2020, with a final age of 9 years. The whisky was matured in a single refill sherry butt, imparting wonderful complexity and depth to this dram.
The dram serves up notes of subtle dried fruits, some dark oak, earthy peat, grassy malt, sea spray, barbequed plums, vanilla, grilled tropical fruits, chilli spice, pepper, wood smoke and sweet figs.
Bottled at a fearsome cask strength of 60.1% ABV and without chill filtration or colouration, this is a fully flavoured whisky packed with character.
