Often seen as a highlight in their whisky calendar, the 'Diageo Special Releases (2018)' revealed the much-anticipated Caol Ila 35 Year Old, as one of their 10 notable expressions. Known for its consistency in producing quantity, the 35 Year Old underlines Caol Ila’s ability to still produce a dram of distinction within its Islay distillery walls.

A long smokey-smoothness and touch of pepper on the finish will have you reverting back to the start for another taste in quick succession. Distilled in 1982 and bottled at 58.1%, this well-balanced release stands a tip-toe above the shoulders of the rest its peers on the list for 2018.

You can start your own 'Special Releases' collection with a bottle of the Caol Ila 35 Year Old and more in our October auction.
