Caol Ila 50 Year Old - 1968 Private Collection | Tasting Notes
Colour: Dark gold.
Aroma: Delicate wisps of peat smoke transforms aromas of honey cured meats and vanilla pods. Notes of fruitcake laden with nuts, raisins, and plump sultanas develop. A hint of menthol runs throughout. Undertones of zesty citrus and aromatic lemongrass linger.
Taste: A refined single malt. Subtle yet warming spice opens into raspberry, cranberry, and sweet baked apple flavours. Thick cut seville orange marmalade and gentle sherry influences develop with time. Mature oak notes add a slightly drying character.
Finish: A lingering finish of smouldering bonfire embers linger entwined with lemon zest and charred oak.
