Adelphi Caol Ila 2008 700ml

Scotland | Islay, Scotland

A 12-year-old heavily peated single cask from Caol Ila, bottled by Adelphi.

This was distilled in 2008 and matured in a refill ex-bourbon hogshead. It is bottled at 54.9% with 306 bottles in the release.

Tasting notes:

Nose: On the nose we have a powerful combination of crispy dried seaweed, oyster shells, preserved lemons, pickled lemon rind, and tobacco.

Palate: Earthy Mezcal, ashy, briney, sweet and savoury with the aroma of a swimming pool changing room.

Finish: Beautifully balanced with a resounding sweetness.

Adelphi is one of the world’s top independent bottlers of whisky. They acquire casks already matured to bottle, as opposed to maturing them themselves, and the Adelphi brand has been synonymous with top quality whisky for in the post-2000 era.

The company also owns the Ardnamurchan distillery on Scotland’s east coast, which distilled its first spirit in 2014 and released its first single malt in 2020.
