This Caol Ila 18 Years Old is from refill American Oak casks. The distillery say this has an appetising salty edge and is as clean and fresh as the pale sky that follows clearing rain. Crisp with smooth hints of fruit with their wild strawberry sweetness dancing boldly across the tongue like flecks of foam over wind-lashed waves.
|Distillery: The nose starts sweet, with hints of vanilla and coconut, pursued by salted nuts and seaweed. With water cacao and fine leather carried on a fresh, salty sea breeze.|
|Distillery: The taste is astonishingly smooth, with notes of salted toffee and wild strawberry. With water the taste is in perfect balance between an oily, sugary sweetness and spicy oak with more hints of strawberry fruit, mint and pepper.|
|Distillery: A long sweet-spicy finish that leaves the breath mint fresh.|
