Bourbon hogsheads 194 and 200 – 56.1%
My Tasting Notes
Colour: Pale straw
Nose: Smouldering embers of a seaside bonfire, honey, vanilla, hints of mixed citrus fruit, nutmeg and cloves.
Palate: Peat, liquorice, grapefruit, honey, green tea, ginger, cloves and hints of pepper.
Finish: Very long, dry, spicy and smoky.
Overall: An excellent Caol Ila whose sweetness is nicely complimented by a slightly dry spiciness. Some fruity notes are there but they stay in the background
Score: 90/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
Buy Caol Ila 18 yo 1991/2009 at The Whisky Exchange
