CAOL ILA 2002 (BOTTLED 2014) MOSCATEL CASK WOOD 43% – DISTILLERS EDITION

RM 343

Out of stock

Richly flavoured yet also drying and finely balanced, the Moscatel cask wood is not overly evident in this double-matured Caol Ila.

TASTING NOTES:

Colour: Clear Gold
Aroma: Wonderfully concentrated and clean, peaty, medicinal, with rich fruit, spicy and fragrant.
Palate: Plenty of the classic Caol Ila smokiness remains at its core. Sweet maltiness strike first, then overwhelmed by peat smoke, intense, crisp flavours, and cinnamon spice.
Finish: Long, rounded, robust and multi-layered.

EDITION: SPECIAL RELEASE & LIMITED EDITION

Description

CAOL ILA 2002 (BOTTLED 2014) MOSCATEL CASK WOOD 43% – DISTILLERS EDITION

Each Expression of CAOL ILA (say ‘Cull Ee-la”) reflects a special quality of the light at this remote Islay distillery. Together they picture a day in its secret cove on the Sound of Islay.

Brilliant, clean and finely balanced, this special CAOL ILA DISTILLER’S EDITION has all the clarity of sunshine flooding the landscape with colour after a storm.

Richer, more intense and many-layered than regular expressions, it yet remains true to the CAOL ILA character, first seen in 1846. Here are those pure sea-air aromas and sweet smoky-dry flavours, expressed with a complex, rich spiciness that surprises and delights.

Each bottle carries a release number, which designates the selected casks especially chosen for double maturation.
