Caol ila 14 year old Woodrow's Of Edinburgh Cask #317310
This delicious Caol Ila 14 year old spent its entire maturation period in a single Refill PX Hogshead. The result is a superb whisky with a rich and complex palate. The nose offers sweet and smokey-meaty notes including maple syrup, smoked bacon, star anise and dried almond. The palate is luscious with cured meats, herbal notes, dehydrated pineapple and bitter cocoa. Just 252 bottles were released at cask strength. No artificial colouring. No chill filtration.
After starting as whisky cask traders, the team at Eastlin Alba adopted a policy: 'always get samples drawn for their customers'. This was so that their clients always knew what they were getting. At times, the team found, and still finds, some superb casks that were 'too good to pass on', those casks are then bottled under the Woodrow's of Edinburgh Warehouse Reserve label.
