A thoroughly sooty and typically peaty Caol Ila with edges softened by age. The smoke has integrated beautifully with 28 years of oak influence and the distillery's fresh, grassy character has melded to Islay's mineral, briney landscape. A triumph, limited to only 271 bottles.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's notes

    Open the bottle and detect its immediate beachy, iodine and ashy quality on the nose. The palate is softer and more subtle with later smoked barley, soot and charcoal, while the finish is distinctly sweet, gently smokes and nicely spiced.
