Caol Ila 9Y – 57.1%
This Caol Ila, is bottled by Claxton’s after being stored at 1st Fill Hogshead for 9 years.
A workhorse Islay distillery and a peated spirit that is often recognised for being exceptional at a young age, perhaps even better than when matured for longer.
Having been filled into fresh fill wood at birth, this Caol Ila has developed plenty of fresh, sweet fruit characteristics while still capturing one of the best examples of young Caol Ila peat we have tasted in a long time.
