Caol Ila 9yo Bràithrean Bottling Note

One of two Caol Ila single malts independently bottled by Na Bràithrean. To show off the impact that casks can have on a whisky's flavour profile, Na Bràithrean finds a cask of whisky and divides it into two halves, which are then finished in different types of casks for different lengths of time. The younger is the Wee Brother, while the older is the Big Brother, which is what we've got here! It's a 9 year old Caol Ila, initially matured in a refill bourbon hogshead before being moved over to a Pedro Ximénez sherry quarter cask for a finishing period. 170 bottles of this expression were produced - and you can have a look at the Wee Brother edition right here!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Seaweed and smoke, with a good scoop of dried fruit and candied peels underneath.

Palate: Raisin and chocolate cookies, stewed plum and fiery ginger, plus some grassy, earthy peat for good measure.

Finish: Charred oak lingers.
