Elements of Islay, Cl11 (Caol Ila) Cask Strength, 55.4%, 500ml


This whisky was distilled in 2008 and spent the last 18 months of maturation in two sherry butts taken from a solera. The old wood has imparted a dusty, spicy note that plays well against the salt and brine found in Caol Ila’s spirit. Only 1206 bottles were produced.

CORE FLAVOUR Beach barbecues and sweet cherries

CASK Two Oloroso Sherry butts from a Solera System


Tasting Notes

NOSE Dusty dark chocolate, charcoal smoke and buttered currants. Winter-punch spice is balanced by fresher, greener notes of nettle and elderflower.

PALATE Mouth coating and dense, with rich Morello cherries in a thick sweet sauce – the perfect balance of sweet and sour. The peat is herbaceous, reminiscent of aged Chartreuse, and is followed by notes of bitter chocolate.

FINISH Cocoa nibs and Arbroath smokies linger.
