This new bottling of Caol Ila is from Gordon Macphail Private Collection range. Distilled in 1994 this Caol Ila has been finished in casks which previous held the super Tuscan wine, Sassicaia where the malt spent a further 8 years. This extra cask aging imparts a rich baked fruits flavour, with spicy fruit notes, bitter chocolate with underlying peat smoke. A great dram.
