CAOL ILA - 25 Year Old 'Distilled 1978'Islay Malt Whisky
A robust, complex malt with plenty of Islay 'attack', this rare and special 25 year old natural cask-strength Caol Ila comes from American and European Oak refill casks.
It is the oldest bottling ever offered by the distillers.
Bright, full gold colour. Dry, medicinal nose with immediate peat smoke, sweet fruits and creaminess.
Firm bodied, fresh, smooth. On the palate, drying and sweetly floral - notes of pine nuts and honey. After this sweet start, medicinal and very maritime. Plenty of smoke in the medium to long finish, leaving a lingering, dry, barbecue after-taste. Long ageing has made this an intricate, distinctive malt that's full of flavour. As with all Caol Ilas, the finish just lasts and lasts.
