Customer Rating
A stunning 1983 vintage Caol Ila released at 30 years of age as part of Diageo's 2014 Special Releases. Aged in a combination of refill American and refill European oak, this is reminiscent of a cross between Brora and Port Ellen, combining the waxiness of the former with the chamois leather note of the latter.

    Nose: Pronounced notes of smoke, iodine and grass.

    Palate: Rich and waxy, peat is initially absent, but slowly builds and builds, along with notes of menthol cigarettes and chamois leather.

    Finish: Long with menthol and peat.

    I took a chance and ordered this on the blind because of the tasting notes and description. It changes my perception of what good islay whisky is. I have had samples of almost all port ellen special releases , best of ardbeg lagavulin ( my favorite ) this release stands out for me in embodying everything the region has to offer. I will be putting a second bottle on a credit card I haven''t used in ten years. It''s worth it.
