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
Does anybode know which cask type it is from?Refill sherry?
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.
Sherry cask on this one?
