Caol Ila's fully aged in wine barrels are a rare commodity. Reduced from cask strength and bottled from a small batch of barrels at 45%, this Caol Ila 2007 Hermitage Finish reveals a surprisingly fruity and smoky profile with flavours of allspice, fruitcake, hazelnuts and black pepper.

The 3 years spent in red wine barrels, at the end of its maturation, have given it warm notes of black fruits and spices that combine perfectly with the smoky, saline and yet fruity character commonly associated with the Islay distillery.

Caol Ila (pronounced “Cull Eela”), is the Gaelic name for the Sound of Islay, the narrow strait which separates the island from Jura. The name comes from its geographical location, which is less than a mile north of Port Askaig on the edge of the Sound of Islay.

In spite of being one of the largest distilleries in Scotland, the single malt that she produces enjoys a very high reputation amongst whisky lovers, being characteristically more smoky than peaty, mineral, undeniably marine and at the same time nicely fruity.
