product Details

Caol Ila 1991 Hunter Laing 25 Year Old / Old and Rare

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. The Flora & Fauna release was well-regarded in the meantime, but it was independent releases like this that gave the best opportunity to sample this much-loved single malt.

An independently bottled Caol Ila, distilled in September 1991 and bottled in 2017 as a 25 year old.

This is a Hunter Laing ​​​​​​ bottling is part of their ultra-premium range, Old & Rare. Formerly the pride of the Douglas Laing portfolio, production of the label was moved to the Hunter Laing company when it was established in 2013.

One of 276 bottles drawn from a single refill butt.
