Caol Ila 16 yo 1995/2012 Whisky Doris

by Oliver Klimek on April 18, 2013

Bourbon hogshead 9814 – 52.2%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Straw
Nose: Coal smoke, hints of tar and diesel, vanilla, lemon, liquorice and pepper.
Palate: Dry peat, liquorice, cough syrup, lemon zest, strong green tea, ginger, black pepper.
Finish: Very long, dry and smoky.
Overall: More medicinal and “dirty” than your usual Caol Ila, this is an excellent and complex peaty powerhouse.

Rating: 87/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Scored blind for the Malt Maniacs Awards 2012 where it won a silver medal, re-tasted for notes
