Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 57.6%
Batch 19/062 is a 2001 Caol Ila bottled in 2019 by G&M for their new and improved Connoisseur's Choice range. G&M have also spiced things up and bottled this one at a natural strength instead of the usual 46%.
It was matured for 17 years in a refill American hogshead that yielded just 216 bottles.
Just how we like it - vanilla sweetness, maple bacon and sea salt with intense peat.
This is Islay in a bottle.
