A gloriously vanilla-forward Glenlossie from James Eadie.
Glenlossie is mainly used in blending, and is rarely seen as a single malt. This particular bottling was aged first fill bourbon casks and recharred casks. The Blue Boar on the bottle refers to Jame Eadie, who owned the Blue Boar pub in 1891 as part of his brewery and whisky blending business.
After success of previous releases by James Eadie we are very excited to try another Caol Ila.
This release is 9 years old and bottled from a small batch of 3 refill bourbon hogsheads. Caol Ila is one of my favourite distilleries and has always been interesting to try in independent bottlers. The younger versions have commonly had an exciting wilder peat driven character.
