Caol Ila 30 yo 1980/2011 Maltbarn

by Oliver Klimek on April 19, 2013

Sherry butt – 56.3%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Smoked cherries, dried figs, chocolate, cigar box, cinnamon, hints of camphor.
Palate: Mild peat, cherries, strawberry jam, milk chocolate, hints of beef stock, cinnamon and cardamom.
Finish: Rather long, fruity and smoky.
Overall: There is an interesting savoury element in this dram, lots going on on the palate, only the finish is a bit timid.

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
