Caol Ila 1982 / 29 Year Old / Cask #6485
70cl / 57.1%
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
After several years of relative abundance, old Caol Ila is becoming rather thin on the ground these days as canny buyers figure out that, for all the hype around Port Ellen, this distillery frequently matches its quality for a fraction of the price. This 1982 vintage Caol Ila has come out of a plain hogshead at exactly 100 UK proof and is absolutely superb.
