Product SKU: 11874



Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Douglas Laing 70cl / 54.6%

A very exciting 40-year-old Caol Ila 1980 bottled at cask strength without colouring or chill filtration by Douglas Laing for their XOP (Extra Old Particular) range.

This 1980 Caol Ila 40-year-old was bottled in 2021 from Cask DL14963, a refill hogshead cask that yielded 206 bottles at an impressive cask strength of 54.6%. Caol Ila's spirit is so tasty and drinkable at a young age that very few casks make it to twenty years old, let alone forty - this is a rare treat indeed and should be spectacular stuff.

Please note that this XOP Caol Ila 1980 is Strictly Maximum 1 Bottle Per Customer. Duplicate orders will be deleted.

Tasting Notes

Official Tasting Notes

Nose: Expect immediately oceanic, West coat of Scotland character, with enticing yet subtle phenols coming through.

Palate: The palate reveals leather, malted barley, spices and a honey-glazed smoked meat quality.

Finish:
The finish is exceptional, with more peat smoke, dried citric fruits and oak bonfire embers. Delicious.
