Caol Ila Big Brother 9 Year Old (70 cl)


ABV: 58%

Location: Kilmarnock

The Caol Ila Big Brother 9 Year Old is the second part of the first ever bottling from Na Braithrean, independent bottlers of the finest Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

The Big Brother distilled at Caol Ila Distillery has spent 9 years ageing in a refill bourbon hogshead cask before being finished in a Pedro Ximenez sherry quarter cask. It has the peat smokiness you would expect from an Islay Malt.

A limited release, there are only 170 bottles of the Big Brother ever bottled.

Tasting Notes

On the nose you'll get hints of sweet cherries and dark chocolate with lingering peat smoke. On the palate it's warm and peppery with an oaky spiciness. There are hints of Christmas pudding with bonfire smoke through the middle. The finish has sweet hints of toffee with wood fire smoke.

The perfect serve

Enjoy how you prefer a good quality dram. Sipped, on the rocks or with a dash of water.

Meet the maker

Na Braithrean [na brah-rin], independent bottlers of the finest Single Malt Scotch Whisky, is the brainchild of brothers Andy and Brendan Clark. The name translates as 'the brothers' in Scottish Gaelic. They create 'brothers' by taking a single cask and splitting the liquid inside in half and finishing them separately in different casks for different lengths of time. The half bottled first becomes the Wee Brother and the second half that is aged slightly longer is bottled as the Big Brother. This gives the brothers different characteristics despite being distilled on the same day and spending most their lives in the same cask.
