Tasting Notes

Caol Ila Cask 318772 Producer Notes

The nose is initially deceptively gentle, offering icing sugar and a slight earthy smoke, though time in the glass crescendos the coastal peat showing muscular phenolic character. The palate gives more notes of peat smoke along with damp wool, icing sugar, slight floral notes, and more peat smoke! The finish is unmistakably coastal fading slowly with flavours of kippers, tar and yet more smoke. 

Expert View - Joel Harrison 

“A vintage stream train pulls into the station, puffing aromatic coal smoke into the air, as a nearby shoe-shine stall prepares fresh chamois leathers to polish the vintage leather brogues of a businessman with recently lacquered hair and a smoking a pipe laden with vanilla tobacco. A timeless scene; a timeless whisky.”
