A big, fruity and smoky dram from Caol Ila, bottled as part of the Connoisseurs Choice range by Gordon & MacPhail. Distilled in 2003 and bottled at about 15 years old in 2018, it's got all the smoky Islay character you'd expect along with a tropical-fruit core and well-balanced peppery spice.

Caol Ila 2003 Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    Aroma :Sweet, smoky, and salty, reminiscent of honey-glazed dry cured meats, followed by fresh mango, apricot, and banana highlighted with zesty lime and rich vanilla custard.

    Taste: Initial sweet honey and vanilla develops into a warming white pepper and dried ginger spiciness. Tropical fruits add a delicious juicy character to the smoky edge.

    Finish: Long and smoky with subtle spices and lingering bonfire embers.
