A gloriously aged 26-year-old Caol Ila, bottled for the Spirits Shop Selection in collaboration with Sansibar as part if the 'Chinese Birds' series of labels.
Distilled 1990 and bottled 2016 as a 26-year-old, there are only 210 bottles at 49.2%.
A workhorse Islay distillery, the fire and brimstone that can come with young expressions makes way for elegance and refinement in the teenage years. At 26, this is a whisky of gentle smoke and contemplation.
