About Caol Ila Distillery
The Caol Ila distillery was owned by the Glaswegian blender Bulloch Lade & Co from 1863 to 1920 and produces a single malt loved not only by master blenders but also by independent bottlers. Matured in ex-wine casks that have been shaved, toasted and re-charred, this version cheerfully expresses Caol Ila’s deeply mineral and ethereal character. Delicately peaty, smoky and empyreumatic, its aroma palette also boasts stunning fruity, herbaceous and floral tones.
A reflection of the richness and diversity of Scotch Whisky, the Artist Collective range covers a wide variety of styles, maturations and regions in small batches selected every year from around a hundred samples. Even more ambitious than previous editions, this sixth collection is composed of eight single malts from Speyside, Highland and Islay, distilled between 2008 and 2013. Now one of the flagship ranges from La Maison Du Whisky and an amazing reflection of their ethos, skills and knowledge when it comes to bottling exceptional single malt whisky.
