One of 268 bottles of Caol Ila single malt whisky drawn from a single refill hogshead and bottled at 48.6% ABV for Douglas Laing's Xtra Old Particular range. This is a maritime dram in which Caol Ila's typically-fierce peatiness has burned down to embers; the spirit is redolent with coal dust and ashy smoke, run through with a sharp and distinct menthol note.
Caol Ila 1984 Reviews
Producer's tasting notes:
The nose opens with a littoral, maritime, fresh character.
The palate opens rather subtly, distinctly sweet and develops into a menthol cough drop style, showing also a peated backdrop amongst tar and chimney soot.
The finish is spiced, ashy and coal dusted.
