Caol Ila Distillery
A refreshing and straightforward dram. Light and lively.
Old Malt Cask
1979, 30 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Nose: Fragrant. Fresh lemon juice. Then a distant smoky note mingling with a phenolic touch. Burnt tyre and a bonfire the day after.
Palate: Crisp and dry. More smoke than on the nose. Citrussy flavours with a honeyed touch. Getting drier and spicier.
Finish: Dry, spicy with a soft cereal aftertaste.
Comment: A refreshing and straightforward dram. Light and lively.
Nose: Refined. Hints of citrus and a thin veil of smoke. This is more doused wood fire than full on peat.
Palate: The smoke becomes more prominent and is more smoked salmon that the nose. There is a sweet savoury element here too.
Finish: Short and swift.
Comment: Another good restorative for this seasonal weather.
