Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Darkness 50cl / 56.2%
A 12-year-old Caol Ila from Darkness, the indie offshoot from Atom Brands that makes a virtue of sherry finishing in tiny hand-coopered octave casks.
This Darkness Caol Ila 12-year-old came from a handful of Oloroso sherry octaves that yielded just over 300 half-litre (50cl) bottles at a hearty 56.2% strength, so if you're after a flavour-packed combo of peat and fruity sherry this should be right up your street.
