Caol Ila 1977 Malts of Scotland 36 Year Old Sherry Hogshead 35cl
An independent bottle of Caol Ila from German firm, Malts of Scotland.
Malts of Scotland were founded in 2005 by whisky enthusiast and connoisseur, Thomas Ewers.
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, and it was not until 2002 that it would return, when the 12 year old was revived by Diageo.
This whisky was distilled in May 1977 and lad to rest in sherry hogshead #13019 before being bottled in March 2013.
One of only 36 bottles.
