A single cask release from the Caol Ila distillery on Islay, bottled by Adelphi independent bottlers. Distilled in 2012, matured for 10 years in first-fill Oloroso sherry hogshead (250L) and bottled in 2022. Only 261 bottles were produced. Non-chillfiltered, naturally coloured and bottled at a cask strength of 55.9%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: The sherry and peat provide the cured/smoked meats you'd hope for, with roasted nuts and leather.
Palate: Tobacco leaf with sweet raisins with a touch of a zesty lemony freshness. Complex and rich but incredibly well-balanced.
Finish: More braai smoke now with the oak emerging for a long finish.
This release is part of a pair of exclusive Adelphi single cask releases, the other is the Ardnamurchan 6 Year Old.
