“”This is a darker, richer, thicker unpeated Caol Ila, letting its hair down and having some fun.” – Scotch Whisky Magazine As Caol Ila is famed for its smokiness, this unpeated and therefore decidedly unsmoky limited edition is a unique insight into this Islay distillery. Matured for 15 years in American oak and Sherry butts, the latter gives this Diageo Special Release 2018 a rich fruitcake, mince pie and figgy pudding edge. Alongside that Christmassy feel you’ll find pine needles, caper brine, Spanish jamon, citrus zest, apple crumble, mint, waves crashing on the seashore and the creamy tang of vanilla yoghurt. Harvey Nichols secured just a handful of these rare bottles, so catch them while you can. Caol Ila – pronounced ‘cull-eela’ – means “Sound of Islay” and refers to the position of the distillery near Port Askaig overlooking the water that separates the island from neighbouring Jura. Founded in 1846, the distillery has had a tumultuous history. But it has thoroughly earned its fame, not just for its high-quality Single Malts, but for its importance in blends such as Johnnie Walker, Black Bottle and our beloved Compass Box.£17.86 per 100.00ml”
