Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Douglas Laing 70cl / 46%

A youthful Caol Ila from the 2012 vintage bottled from a refill sherry butt by Douglas Laing for their Provenance series in Sept 2020, yielding a whopping 797 bottles at 46%.

Caol Ila's ultra-pure spirit doesn't always sit well with first fill sherry, with a few honourable exceptions it's generally better in refill wood. This should be excellent.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Polished oak floors initially developing to seaweed, juicy berries and candied toffee apple.

Palate: Gentle spice, stewed fruits and BBQ'd meat with a salty tang and Islay barley.

Finish: Long with Islay peat smoke to the fore alongside raisins, plums and a warming, nutty quality.
