This exceptionally elegant and complex filling of Caol Ila matured by Moscatel in barrels. The wood is not overly present, but perfectly balanced flavors in this rich Islay Single Malt. Notwithstanding the figure, the filling of various vintages currently being currently in stock will be delivered. This bottling of Caol Ila Distillers Edition is part of the Classic Malts of Scotland. Each Distillers Edition undergoes a second (or ‘double’) maturation in barrels that were previously filled with high-proof wines. In this series, the whiskey will be filled after the usual harvest time for more about six months for finishing in Muscat barrels. These give the smoky and oily Caol Ila a rich flavor. This Distillers Edition is characterized by a mild malt flavor, which connects peaty smoke with an intensely spicy cinnamon flavor. Through a second maturation in Muscat oak barrels and a total ripening time of all twelve, the caramel-colored whiskey developed a pronounced sweet fruity and complex flavor. 2014, the whiskey was awarded at the International Spirits Challenge with a gold medal and is ideal as a gift for lovers of fine-peaty Islay whiskeys to particularly festive occasions. To the flavors particularly well emphasized, it is best to serve the whiskey with a sip of water.
