Description

Age: -
Alcohol ABV: 55.4%
Bottle Size: 70cl 
Description: Elements of Islay
Distillery: Caol Ila
Region: Islay
Vintage: 2008
Year Bottled: 2018

The second dram in this new Elements of Islay release is a 2008 Caol Ila, at either nine or ten years of age.

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 a limited amount of 1206 bottles were produced of this Elements of Islay, Caol Ila. 

 

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.
