Caol Ila Stitchell Reserve

“Unpeated Malt”

Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

 Caol Ila Stitchell Reserve

 

An Unpeated Expression

This unpeated limited edition, natural cask strength Caol Ila (59.6% ABV), has been aged in three kinds of cask reserved for taste alone. It has a clean and fresh as the pale sky that follows clearing rain, its intense flavors dancing across the tongue like flecks of foam over wind-blasted waves.

Billy Stitchell of Caol Ila

In His Own Words

“How many can say that they have spent their entire working life in a place where their forbearers all worked too? I’m proud to say that I can. I have worked at the Caol Ila Distillery for 40 years; as a manager for 15 years of that time. When I came to work here my father, my grandfathers, my great-grandfather and my great-great-grandfather had done so before me.

Five generations and over 130 years of our know-how has gone into this small batch of Stitchell Reserve and I think you’ll find it a magnificent Caol Ila. It’s a natural cask strength malt aged in refill American Oak, ex-Bodega European Oak and rejuvenated American Oak casks reserved for taste alone, to give us an exciting whisky.

The nose is clean, aromatic and fresh, softly sweet, the fruity, with a late honey and wisp of smoke. Intense and mouth-filling, with a wonderfully smooth texture, it has a great surge of sweet spiciness on the palate and a honeyed, warming character, with a spicy-dry finish. I’m, proud it bears our name.”
