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.

The second Palo Cortado finished Caol Ila from James Eadie. This sherry wood type is rarely seen in whisky maturation (the sherry itself is rare enough).
IN STOCK
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).

A classic whisky from the Isle of Islay. With the growing demand for older whiskies around the globe we're glad to see you can still get your hands on a bottle of Caol Ila like this one.
