1 bottle Caol Ila 1988. Managers Challenge 1996. 8 year old. No box. Cask number 1207. One of 35 bottles. 70cl. No strength stated although bottled at cask strength. Level base of neck. Good condition.
The Caol Ila Managers Challange was a small bottling created as a result of a competition held back in the early 2000’s. The idea was that a number of the distillery Managers who’s whiskies went into Bells 8 year old blend were invited to submit samples.
These were judged by a group of leading drinks writers who after consideration chose the Caol Ila entry which was very fitting as the event was held at that particular distillery. The attached photograph which appeared in the Scotsman newspaper is Master Blender Gordon Bell with the range of whiskies entered for the final judgment.
This is a great opportunity to acquire a single cask, cask strength Caol Ila that indirectly wouldn't exist unless such exercise took place.
Although a condition report is normally included in the lot description, we would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids.
