New, but older

Postby Rob Allanson » Wed Jun 23, 2010 3:41 pm

A new member of the Caol Ila family of single malt Scotch whiskies has been announced by Diageo.

A 25 year old single malt Scotch Whisky is now joining this highly popular and award-winning collection. Caol Ila has been distilled on the eastern shore of Islay since 1846.

It will be the most mature member of the dynasty, standing alongside a 12 year old, an 18 year old, a natural cask strength bottling, a Distillers Edition, and some limited edition younger expressions.

I guess this is why they've been having regular shortages of the 18y. Socking it away for extra aging.

I'm planning an old Caol Ila tasting so this release is perfect. So far there will be two from Bladnoch Forum and a Cadenheads. Hopefully one from Golden Cask and Berry Brothers and Rudd.
