The Distillers Art.
The Spirit of Art is a celebration of Fine Art and Fine Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Each unique package features an original artwork with the commissioned artist being carefully chosen for reason of a strength or talent or connection that we consider having particular empathy with the place from which the selected cask originates.
Every bottle, every painting, and every signed print are absolutely unique.
With the Caol Ila 13yo, the print is a scene of an Islay shore called, “Caol Isla”, (frame not included) painted by Mr Brian McFie.
My rough notes read, “Big ashy smoke, boiled lolly note, subdued oak
Alc shows but drives the palate, clean, very crisp, narrow and long.Malt is also crisp, oak sits in the back ground. Lingering ashy smoke. Good? You betcha!”.
Official notes read, “Like our landscape study of Islay itself, this magnificent malt is redolent of green pastures and peat smoke. Nose: Full grassy, smoky whiff with a light essence of tobacco leaf. Palate: It is oily and salty with a gentle smokiness rounded by sweet fruit.”
