The Kinship Caol Ila 40 Year Old 1980 Description
A spectacular 40-year-old Caol Ila single malt whisky. This is a single cask, limited edition dram that was bottled by Hunter Laing in The Kinship Collection. This expression commemorates the virtual Fèis Ìle 2021, and is some commemoration at that. Bottled at cask strength at 51.8% abv, this is free from artificial colouring and chill filtration. A yield of 183 bottles, this is the fifth edition in The Kinship Collection, and though the Islay Festival may have been virtual, this is not a jot less exceptional for it.
Expect a rich, hearty dram, full of West Coast of Scotland character on the nose and palate. The finish is full of citric fruits, and bonfire smoke, that leaves with an unforgettable impression.
