Tipple of the Month – Hunter Laing & Co – Caol Ila 1996

August’s Tipple of the Month is from independent bottler Hunter Laing & Co, which has released a 1996 vintage Caol Ila as part of its Old Malt Cask series. Each malt in the series is non-chillfiltered and bottled at exactly the right time to capture the unique characteristics of the cask. Bottled at 50 per cent alcohol, the result is a nose that appears initially sweet before morphing into notes of seaweed and iodine on the palate, with a long, dry finish of peat smoke and oak.
