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

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's tasting notes:

    • Nose:

      The nose opens with a littoral, maritime, fresh character.

    • Palate:

      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.

    • Finish:

      The finish is spiced, ashy and coal dusted.
