About this Chapter 7 x TopWhiskies collaboration

With less prominent smoke than some of its Islay neighbours, Caol Ila whisky is different from its neighbours. It's mashing, fermentation regime, stills and the cut points are unique and it produces a fruity malt that is likeable even for those who don't like peat at first.

This particular cask comes from a refill bourbon hogshead. We've cut this whisky to 51.4% alcohol by volume where we think it performs best and lets out all the aromas.
