This single malt from the Caol Ila distillery on Islay was distilled in 1979 and matured for over 40 years in Hogshead #7709. It was bottled in 2020 at 54.9% ABV. Only 156 bottles of Caol Ila 1979 40 Years Old were released. Every year since 2011, French independent bottler La Maison Du Whisky releases a new range of whiskies in their Artist series. Each year the bottles showcase a new contemporary artist. In 2020 the highly-acclaimed series celebrates its 10th anniversary. The artworks for these special releases were created by Sei Arimori, a Japanese artist currently living in Belgium.
