A single 1997 European Sherry Oak cask of Caol Ila chosen to represent the distillery in the cask strength Managers' Choice range from Diageo. This is only the second ever single cask Caol Ila released by Diageo after the wonderful Feis Ile bottling in 2009 (also a sherry cask, coincidentally).
This bottling was released especially for members of the Ardbeg Committee (the free to join distillery club). A 6 year old, this was the first release entirely using spirit distilled since the distillery reopened in 1997. The idea was that comments were welcomed from the committee, hence the 'For Discussion...' branding.
