Islay Single Malt Whisky
Bottled By North Star Spirits 70cl / 60.9%
A 7-year-old Caol Ila 2013 single cask from new wave Glasgow independent bottlers North Star Spirits, this appeared as part of the company's Batch 20 releases in Autumn 2022.
This bargain Caol Ila 2013 7-year-old came from a refill sherry butt that gave up a whopping 622 bottles at an epic 60.9% strength.
Youngish Caol Ila is really having a moment, and that refill sherry maturation should give this a lovely flavour boost.
