Product Description

A well aged Caol Ila from G&M. Matured in a Single refill American Oak hoghead for 17 years. Bottled at 57.6% ABV and one of 226 bottles. There has been a lovely balance and delicay with these Connoisseurs Choice Caol Ila's. The fruit, oak and smoke have been very harmonious so we have high hopes with this one.

Official Tasting Notes

Nose - Fresh tropical fruit aromas - banana, melon, and ripe kiwi. Toasted cereal notes develop and slowly evolve into lemon and grapefruit zest with a hint of driftwood smoke.

Palate - Citric sharpness leads to tart green apple and hints of creamy vanilla. Cracked black pepper and oak flavours combine with gentle nuances of peat smoke.

Finish - Tropical fruits, tempered with plenty of smoke overtones.
