Well-balanced contemplative old Caol Ila with smouldering charcoal and maritime notes. Matured for a minimum of 25 years in a mixture of American & European oak casks from the region of Islay.
Appearance : Golden
Nose : Sweet-spicy, fresh sea-air notes with hints of preserved fruit; adding water brings out polished wood notes.
Body : Medium.
Palate : Immediately sweet and fruity with a balancing bitterness. As befits its age, Caol Ila’s trademark smoky-medicinal character is controlled rather than exuberant. Smooth & complex.
Finish : Long, sweetly drying with more smoke coming through.
