Description

This beautiful limited-edition bottling from the Islay distillery, Caol Ila, has been bottled at the cask strength of 60.4% abv and aged during 11 years in a Hogshead cask.

Pronounced “cull-eella”, the distillery is situated on the North Eastern shores of Islay. The name was derived from Gaelic Caol Ìle for "Sound of Islay", in reference to the distillery's location overlooking the strait between the Islay and Jura islands.

Distilled in 2008 and bottled in 2020, each bottling comes with a unique number, with only 287 bottles being released.

As this is a cask strength release, we recommend trying to add a few drops of water to open up the flavours. We can find more tropical notes followed by a peaty, lingering sweetness.

Stalla Dhu

A rare collection of small batch and single cask malts from Scotland’s finest distilleries.

First and second-generation members of our family of independent bottlers carefully select the whiskies showing particular promise.

We begin by managing the wood and continue by housing the environment and casks that best affect the ageing to achieve the unique results we strive for.

We let the whisky slumber till the time is right and then select the correct ABV to bring a very special wee dram to you.
