Taste note

  • Colour:

    Gold

  • Nose:

    Plenty of coastal influences, but not actually all that smoky. The medicinal aromas we’ve come to expect from Caol Ila are subdued, replaced by scents of dried seashells. Underneath that, this 25 year old is quite oaky, along with notes of toffee and dark chocolate. There is a sweeter, citrusy side to this Caol Ila too, offering up a perfume of marzipan and candied orange peel.

  • Palate:

    Lively for a 25 year old, with a rather sharp mouthfeel. While the nose was reminiscent of old oak, the palate offers new wood. There’s plenty of spice, with cracked black pepper and nutmeg providing a nice bite. Tobacco leaves and leather settle in for a much needed dose of sophistication.

  • Finish:

    At last this whisky lights up in a cloud of peat smoke. Like a peat fire though, the finish lasts long but isn’t overly warming.
