Islay Single Malt Whisky
Bottled By North Star Spirits 70cl / 58.2%
Fresh off the back of winning Independent Bottler of the Year 2020 we have this delightful first-fill sherry butt Caol Ila from North Star Spirits as part of their late 2020 batch of releases.
Distilled in 2009 and matured in a single first-fill oloroso sherry butt, this whisky was bottled 11 years later at a cask strength of 58.2% and with a yield of just 410 bottles.
The number of quality indie bottlings coming out of Caol Ila in recent years is phenomenal and this whisky is up there with the best, well done North Star.
