Caol Ila 2001 Single Cask / Feis Ile 2012

Caol Ila distillery was built in 1846 by Hector Henderson, who was bought out from the venture a little over 10 year later by Bulloch Lade. The blending firm merged with DCL (now Diageo) in 1927, who still run the distillery today. In 1972 the original site was demolished and replaced by a new one. When distilling resumed in 1974, Caol Ila was the largest producer of single malt on the Isle of Islay. Despite this, due to its importance in popular blends such as Johnnie Walker, its single malt brand disappeared under United Distillers, with the only regular bottling being the 15 year old from the Flora & Fauna range.   

Distilled in 2001, matured in Sherry butt number 300897 then bottled for the Feis Ile 2012 at cask strength. 

Bottle No.146.

Cask No.300897
