- Caol Ila 28 Years Old 1983 Berry Bros & Rudd
28 year old single cask refill hogshead #4825. Distilled 1983 and bottled 2011 featuring the new Berry Bros label.
A deep smokiness lies behind the yellow fruit, green olives and leather aromas. The mouth feel is textured, slowly releasing the smoky flavours which seep through the fruitiness. This is an intense and balanced Caol Ila with a charming and lingering peaty finish.
