Caol Ila 1998 Feis Ile 2013
Release in June 2013 for the annual Feis Ile, this Caol Ila was specially selected by Billy Stitchell.
Billy said this about how the whisky matured:
“Spirit distilled in 1998 has been triple-cask matured. For 12 years it rested in a combination of Refill Butts, Hogsheads and Barrels. The vatted whisky was then allowed to mature for several months in active hogshead casks to impart a spicy/oaky note to the existing delicate Caol Ila smoke. Finally it was treated to a final gentle maturation in European oak.”
This is bottle No 499.
