Caol Ila 11 Year Old A Dream of Scotland

This cask strength single malt is part of the A Dream of Scotland series, bottled for Bruhler Whiskyhaus, a spirits retailer in Germany.

A Caol Ila, it has been aged for 11 years including a finishing period in Panamanian rum cask.

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.

One of 429 bottles.
