Caol Ila 13 Year Old Discovery

13 years old may be an unusual age for a whisky to be bottled, but we'll trust the whisky brains at Gordon and MacPhail any day. This Caol Ila carries the distilleries signature smoke, but that is just the gloss that covers the underlying white chocolate and fruity nature of this delightful dram.
Staff Tasting Notes Nose: The smoke leaps out over a bed of green apples. A slight meaty note comes through and there is a mossy, medicinal feel too.
Palate: The launches in with sweet vanilla and the smoke comes through after the initial sweet characteristics die down. All the way through citrus is present on the palate.
Finish: The smoke is king in the finish, with a slight sweet hint knocking through.

Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Sweet and savoury: dry-cured meats glazed with luscious apricot jam combines with rich vanilla notes. Flashes of softly swirling peat smoke complement the delicious sweetness.
Palate: Bursting with juicy tropical fruit - pineapple, kiwi, and banana - brushed softly with icing sugar. Light touches of malt and vibrant lemon peel balance the sweetness.
Finish: Long and luxurious with hints of sweet marshmallow toasting over gently smouldering bonfire embers.

Perhaps a little less famous than its Islay brothers, Caol Ila is more of a balanced, less in your face smoke than than the South Coast 3 (Lagavulin, Laphroaig and Ardbeg).
