A special Caol Ila, selected by us and bottled as part of the Single Malts of Scotland range as the first Director's Special release. It was all done for the inaugural Whisky Show: Old & Rare in Glasgow and went down a storm at the show. It's a well-aged Caol Ila, balancing the distillery's mineral and smoky character against stacks of fruit and honey.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)
Damp ash, apples and sea spray to start, with tarry ropes and bandages following on behind. Sweetness builds, balanced by damp earth notes and peaty smoke, with barley sugar and singed foam bananas.
Very sweet off the bat, with honey-drizzled apples and marshmallows. Slowly the marshmallows get toasted and hints of charcoal smoke rise up through the middle. Sweet herbal notes sit at the back – mint and tarragon.
Medicinal smoke and charcoal fade to leave baked apples and wine gums.
