Caol Ila 'Gordon & MacPhail' Sassicaia 2009 13yo 700ml - Connoisseurs Choice  

This Caol Ila belongs to Gordon & MacPhail's Wood Finished Connoisseurs Choice series. Bottlings of the new Connoisseurs Choice series represent single cask bottlings or batches of a few casks and special post-maturations. The labels contain detailed information on the special characteristics. A comprehensive aroma profile can now also be found on the labels of the Connoisseurs Choice bottlings. This Caol Ila was initially matured in refill Bourbon barrels. It was then refined for one year in rare Sassicaia red wine casks. Sassicaia is an Italian red wine from Tuscany and is one of the best wines in Italy.
