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

  • Tasting note by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: 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.

    Palate: 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.

    Finish: Icing and damp tree bark. Dark and white chocolate. Black pepper pops up and fades. Apples and pears linger.

    Comment: An appropriately excellent closer.
