There are few pleasures in the Scotch world greater than the smoky, creamy, oily character of Caol Ila single malt when it’s matured in a fresh Sherry butt, allowing the sweet, fruity, nutty character of the Jerez wine to marry with the whisky over time. Single malt fanatics like myself are often willing to pay a hefty price for that experience (see the current Caol Ila 30 year we have in stock from Kinship), but with this single barrel 9 year old expression, we were able to bring the barrel in directly from Scotland for a price too good to believe. Brimming with soft fruit, peat smoke, salted taffy, creamy vanilla, nougat, and sea brine, this whisky is so fat and textural on the palate you almost have to chew it. The concentration on display from this single barrel specimen is unlike any Caol Ila I’ve ever tasted; it’s so dense and layered in its flavor profile, that you need to taste it over and over again to fully comprehend and appreciate what’s in your glass. Simply put, it’s a bottle you’ll probably want multiples of. -David Driscoll, Mission Sales Manager

I love sherry butts and I can not lie.

The marriage between subtle, sweet smoke and rich, deep fruits makes this a complex yet enjoyable dram…. Especially for the price point.
