A lovely colour (and a massive ABV) on this full-strength 1981 vintage Caol Ila, bottled without colouring or chill-filtration in 2011 at around 30 years old by renowned independent bottlers Robert Scott of Rutherglen for their Scott's Selection series.

Got me one of these just after it had been bottled in the Spring this year - a cracker of a Caol Ila! Lots of 'Oomph' and lots of Caol Ila but in beautifil measured proportions due to the age.It doesn't say on the bottle whether is a bourbon or sherry cask, and honestly I didn't get much sherry cask character in it, but the high abv makes you think sherry cask, since they're normally give less to those pesky angels ;-)regards,Claus, Aalborg Whisky Club, Denmark

Surely impressive for a nearly 30 year old whisky.Distilled 1981 bottled 2011 makes 30 years, doesn't it? That makes the abv even more impressive.
