Description

This 10 year old Caol Ila Islay single malt was distilled in December 2004 thanks to Gordon & Macphail before being bottled at 60.1% ABV in February 2015.

It was drawn from four casks, which were a selection of first-fill and refill Sherry butts.

Body:
Medium.

Finish:
Long, Sweet and smoky.

Style:
Fruity Islay Single Malt.

Tasting Notes

AROMA without water:
Sweet sherry influences with cured bacon and deliciously sweet vanilla aromas. Tropical fruit notes then develop with apricot, pineapple and ripe banana.
TASTE without water:
Chilli spice with pear, banana and hints of passion fruit. A milk chocolate edge then combines with lingering cigar ash flavours.

AROMA with water:
Sweet vanilla aromas are complemented by apricot preserve, almond and cocoa powder notes as a subtle hint of menthol soon develops.
TASTE with water:
Sweet and smoky with honey, apple and banana flavours, which complement lingering bonfire embers.

Taste Test

a beautiful medley of pear and lime with a thin spread of peanut butter for good measure.. not exactly what one might expect...! the barley is just so juicy from the kickoff: the citrus on the nose reappears, though any hope of pear vanishes; the barley, so rarely head in a Caol-Ila grows in confidence and intensity as the delivery develops; not as oily as you might expect allowing extra oak to emerge; always fascinating to see a traditional peaty Islay stripped bare and in full naked form. Shapely and very high class indeed.
