Caol Ila 1998 Moscatel Sherry Finish - Distillers Edition Review

Caol Ila 1998 Moscatel Sherry Finish - Distillers Edition Another cracking dram that i sampled whilst on the tour of Glenkinchie Distillery recently was this Caol Ila 1998 Moscatel Sherry Finish - Distillers Edition

The whisky has been double matured, first in America oak casks then a second maturation in casks which previously held Moscatel wine.

You can pick up a bottle of this lovely Islay expression at Master of Malt
