Caol Ila 2003 (bottled 2015) Moscatel Cask Finish - Distillers Edition C-si;2-475 (70cl, 43%)

Launched in 1997, the Distillers Edition range was a twist on the standard Classic Malts series, with each finished in a variety of different casks. The first Caol Ila inclusion was in 2006, and the second maturation is in Moscatel casks.

It's the 2003 vintage Caol Ila Distillers Edition single malt Scotch whisky, which has been finished in casks which previously held Moscatel wine. It was distilled in 2003 and bottled in 2015 at 43% ABV.

Caol Ila distillery was built in 1846 by Hector Henderson, who was bought out from the venture a little over 10 year later by Bulloch Lade. The blending firm merged with DCL (now Diageo) in 1927, who still run the distillery today. In 1972 the original site was demolished and replaced by a new one. When distilling resumed in 1974, Caol Ila was the largest producer of single malt on the Isle of Islay. Despite this, due to its importance in popular blends such as Johnnie Walker, its single malt brand disappeared under United Distillers, and it was not until 2002 that it would return, when the 12 year old was revived by Diageo.
