Caol Ila 10 Years Old Artist Collective 2010 is a limited-edition Caol Ila single malt, released in 2021 as part of La Maison du Whisky’s Artist Collective series. The whisky was distilled in 2010 and matured in a refill sherry butt for 10 years, before being bottled at 48%. Caol Ila 10 Years Old Artist Collective 2010 showcases a wonderful balance between peated malt and sherry wine, with notes of fruit, chocolate, iodine, malt, smoke, peat and spices. Loren Klein’s artwork ‘NONQBRC7’ highlights the complexity of this whisky.

Caol Ila is the Gaelic name for the Sound of Islay, the sea which separates the island from Jura in one of the most remote and beautiful parts of Scotland’s West Coast. The distillery is situated on the shores of the Sound, a spot originally chosen in 1846 partly because of the clean water from Loch Nam Ban which still provides its main supply. And even today you can still watch the seals in the Sound from the still room.

In the classic Islay style, Caol Ila is made predominantly with peated malt and the resulting phenols have a big influence on the final flavour of the whisky, as do the large onion shaped stills which impart Caol Ila’s light and delicate character, along with the salty coastal air that the casks ‘breathe’ during maturation.
