Caol Ila 40 Year Old, XOP Black, 1979, 51.2%XOP
An exceptional 40 year old bottling of a Caol Ila from Douglas Laing's Xtra Old Particular The Black Series, offering the ultimate treat for Islay single malt lovers.
Distilled in 1979, this whisky has been aged for 4 long decades in a single ex-bourbon hogshead, gently mellowing this coastal Islay malt into fragrant and easy-drinking liquid gold.
Caol Ila's vibrant character of citrus, buttered malt and maritime notes really shine in this whisky, alongside notes of orange blossom, herbal honey and crisp minerality from its long ageing.
A beautifully presented release of only 160 bottles - this won't be on the shelves for long!
