The pinnacle of the single malts in the 2018 edition of Diageo Special Releases – the oldest Caol Ila released as part of the series. It's a mixture of refill American-oak hogsheads, and both refill American- and European-oak butts, all of which add gentle character to the whisky while letting its 35-year-mellowed shine.Tasting Notes (1)
- Black Pepper
Tasting note by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Waxed apples, royal icing and honeysuckle to start. Hints of dirty smoke hide at the back, surrounded by brine and a touch of aromatic sandalwood. Fruit sits at the heart of the dram: sweet berries, pear and pineapple.
Rich and thick. Fruit juice runs through the core: mandarin, apple and pineapple. Spice builds slowly along with waxy touches: nutmeg and white pepper. The smoke is soft but present: woody and fragrant.
Icing and damp tree bark. Dark and white chocolate. Black pepper pops up and fades. Apples and pears linger.
An appropriately excellent closer.
