Caol Ila 'Xtra Old Particular' 1979 / 35 years old 47.1%
Product Description

Region: Islay

Strength: 47.1%

Volume: 700ml

This exceptionally old Caol Ila is one of the few to come from the late 1970's, bottled from a single cask that yielded just 204 bottles, of which only 3 are available in New Zealand. The tasting notes written by the team at Douglas Laing talk of a stately old Islay malt, with soft peat, ash and oily rag aromas. The soft peat builds to bonfire smoke, iodine and tar with a sea-side maritime character in the finish. As supplies of old Islay whiskies continue to dry up, we are delighted to see such a special whisky on our shelves.

Please note: Due to limited availability, this is strictly limited to one bottle per customer
