Caol Ila 25 Year Old, Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Well-balanced contemplative old Caol Ila with smouldering charcoal and maritime notes. Matured for a minimum of 25 years in a mixture of American & European oak casks from the region of Islay.
Sweet-spicy, fresh sea-air notes with hints of preserved fruit; adding water brings out polished wood notes.
Immediately sweet and fruity with a balancing bitterness. As befits its age, Caol Ila’s trademark smoky-medicinal character is controlled rather than exhuberant. Smooth and complex.
Long, sweetly drying with more smoke coming through
