The 2022 Whiskies Awards was another successful competition for the Stalla Dhu range! Two high awards have been given to the Caol Ila 11 year and Truth Be Told 22. With Caol Ila taking World’s Best Single Cask Single Malt and Truth Be Told taking Best Scotch Blended Limited Release. That’s an amazing showing from a small family built independent bottler. It’s fantastic to see the awards keep rolling in!
Fortunately/unfortunately, after the announcement all of the remaining Caol Ila sold out within a couple days! There are still bottles of the Truth Be Told in stock.
Some famous distilleries are fiercely protective of their whiskies and adapted a process called tea-spooning; as in adding a teaspoon of another malt.
This is so ‘Independent Bottlers’ cannot call it a Single Malt or use the Distillery name.
This exceptional cask in its previous incarnations was known as ‘Wardhead’ and clues to its identity lie within the label.
Taste: Soft sophisticated spice, toffee touches, lovely lingering long finish.
