A 2001 Caol Ila single malt from indie bottler Gordon & MacPhail, matured in a single first-fill bourbon barrel for 19 years, before being bottled in March 2021 exclusively for The Whisky Exchange. Aromas of honey-glazed ham, aniseed and poached pears fill the nose, complemented by notes of black pepper, green apples and smoking bonfire embers throughout the palate.Tasting Notes (1)
- Black Pepper
Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Smouldering bracken, roasting apples and pineapples, wine gums and a gentle sea breeze. Heather-honey drizzled pears – lightly poached – are sprinkled with brown sugar and blowtorched.
Soft, rounded and sweet, with singed mango, apple sauce and sweet pear backed up by aniseed ball and black pepper spice, and layers of coal-forward barbecue smoke. Gummi bears and wine gums emerge from the ashes, along with lime zest and a touch of barrel char.
A refreshing burst of ozone and brine leads to a touch of ash and long, lingering fruitiness – apples, pears and wine gums.
While young Caol Ila can be feisty, almost two decades in wood have allowed the spirit to calm down, although without losing its freshness. The smoke has peeled back to allow fruitiness to shine through, providing a rich and peaty backdrop for this tropically tinged dram.
