Description

In 1846, Glasgow distillery owner Hector Henderson picked a little bay on the Sound of Islay for his distillery site. He named it for the sound itself, using the Gaelic Caol Ila, and it was across this sound the little puffer ships made their round trips to the mainland – slowly helping to establish the distillery as the biggest on Islay.

Distilled on Islay on the 31st of May 2011 as a full-bodied peaty spirit, this single malt was matured in bourbon cask #313406 for 8 years and finished in a hand-selected ex-Amarone wine cask from Veneta Botti, Veneto. Bottled on the 23rd of July 2019 at cask strength.

This cask yielded 293 bottles and is a rare Islay single malt whisky.

On the palate, experience mossy notes with hints of pineapple and brown sugar.

The Lady of the Glen Gift Set

Thinking about how to gift Whisky, why not try out gift sets?

Our gift sets include the bottle of your choice presented in our oak box with a set of Glencairn tasting glasses.

Glencairn glasses are an excellent accompaniment to any Whisky tasting because their bell shape allows for complex Whisky aromas to be trapped in the glass making them ideal for nosing and sipping. They also have the added benefit that if the glass tips over all of the spirit doesn't splash out!
