Caol Ila 25 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl
Introduced in 2010, after cask strength versions in 2004 and 2005, this is the first officially-bottled Caol Ila 25yo to be bottled at 43%. This is a very welcome addition to the official range, with a rich, gentle mouthfeel and restrained, coal-esque phenols.
Sticking plasters, hints of lemon zest, oily smoke and bonfire toffee.
Sweet palate entry with lemon juice and oak. Leather, notes of black pepper, spicy ginger and sweets.
Long, oily, peaty finish.
