Caol Ila 35 Year Old
The oldest Caol Ila so far in Diageo's Special Releases series. This is a refined, mature dram that reaches a depth and complexity of cereals, chocolate and silky smoke, yet shows a surprisingly fresh and clear palate with flora, citrus zest and pine resins, a little menthol note and a pinch of herbs.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose A slow, clean and clear start, with floral and fruity notes on a fresh-cleaned and faintly smoky base. Artist’s studio, lemon zest, butter and malt vinegar in one direct hit! The clean scent of a pair of brand new box-fresh trainers. The smoke is embedded in pine, resin and menthol notes wrapped round a cereal grain core. Later, a floral freshness with almond soap and final, fresh mint.
Palate Cooling and very fluid, with a smooth, creamy texture, soon becoming dry after a quiet, lightly sweet start. Sugary, then smoky against a developing herbal astringency, with fennel and a trace of picture varnish. Wonderful tooth-coating tannins offset a rising, peaty pungency.
Finish Spicy-sweet, with honey, sweet peat smoke and crunchy cereal, smooth chocolate, syrupy pistachio pastry. Cleansing, with silky dryness and lingering smoky warmth.
