Somehow we convinced Mike Collings (founder of Firkin Whisky Co.) to sell us an entire cask of their Firkin amazing Caol Ila whisky. We picked it because of how much we loved the first 2012 edition (a 7yo released in 2019), and we're so Firkin glad we did!

This Firkin whisky is a heavily peated single malt from Caol Ila distillery in Islay, Scotland, was finished in a custom cask made from American Oak and French Oak staves and seasoned with Marsala. It's botted at 48.9% ABV.

True to Firkin form, it really is 'downright drinkable'!

The day the shipment of these bottles arrived, Chris and his neighbour Alex cracked a bottle and just couldn't put it down. After going through about a quarter of it, they were gripped with an overwhelming craving for steak.

So Alex fried up some Wagyu (inside rib eye cap from WagyuWhisky - http://www.wagyuwhisky.com.au/) in a pan, we dipped it in Rengaya's (North Sydney Yakiniku) Signature BBQ Sauce and chased it down with this Firkin beautiful Caol Ila. There's only half a bottle of it left now and Alex ordered a case.

Independent Bottlings of Caol Ila (like this) are known to be amazing, and this one lives up to that expectation in a massive way. We really hope you snag at least one of these as it's just such a fantastic whisky, and as always, please let us know what you think!
