Product Description

Part of the 2016 Diageo Annual releases and another un-peated version of Islay's largest distillery bottled at 15 years old and at a mighty 61.5% ABV

Nose: tart gooseberry, lime, maritime/coastal harbour salty notes, green peppers, sooty lemon, pine nuts or earthy almond.

Palate: Very green, unripe pear and apple, green peppers, aniseed, sooty white pepper, coastal brine, zingy gooseberry and lime cordial.

Finish: Menthol, green fruit, coastal herb garden, sooty limes, lots of spicy and peppery oak.

Needs water for me, a big and bold Caol Ila that is very different to the standard 12 year old and peated versions, well worth trying and along with the Lagavulin the best value for money of the special releases.
