Brilliant, clean and finely balanced, this special Caol Ila has all the clarity of sunshine flooding the landscape with colour after a storm. Richer, more intense and many layered than regular expressions, it yet remains true to the Caol Ila character, first seen in 1846. Here are those pure sea-air aromas and sweet, smoky-dry flavours, expressed with a complex, rich spiciness that surprises and delights. Each bottle carries a release number, which designates the selected casks especially chosen for double maturation.
Nose: Concentrated pure, peaty and fresh-clean, with rich fruit; spicy and fragrant.
Palate: Sweetness and maltiness are overwhelmed by peat smoke and intense, clean, crisp flavours. Caol Ila’s signature smoky bonfires build. Overall, drying, in a balanced, complex, elegant development with cinnamon.
Finish: Long, rounded, robust and multi-layered.
