Caol Ila Distillers Edition 1997/2010

by Oliver Klimek on January 22, 2012

Moscatel finish – 43%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark gold
Nose: Honey, mixed sweets, cloves, hints of smoked ham and a whiff of smoke becoming stronger with time.
Palate: Gentle peat, honey, tinned fruit cocktail, vanilla, hints of ginger and nutmeg.
Finish: Long, smoky and slightly fruity.
Overall: The peat needs a while to cut through the sweet fruits. Quite a nice dram, but a bit weakish on the palate.

Rating: 83/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Buy Caol Ila Distillers Edition at Master of Malt
