First Editions Caol Ila 2010 8 Year Old Description
This single cask bottling was distilled in 2010 at Caol Ila on the isle of Islay and bottled by renowned indie bottler Hunter Laing & Co. Matured in a single sherry butt for eight years, this expression has been bottled at 46% abv in 2019 producing just 818 bottles. As with all the releases in the First Editions series, this single malt is free from chill filtration and artificial colouring.
Nose: smoke and brine with a refreshing lemon citrus cutting through.
Palate: rich and peaty with seaweed and bonfire smoke straight from an Islay beach.
Finish: long with lingering pepper and brine.
