Product Description

A gloriously sherried Caol Ila from Gordon and Macphail.  This Connoisseurs Choice 'Upper' release was distilled in 1996 and bottled 23 years later from a single Refill Sherry Butt.  Just 519 bottles have been produced

Official Tasting Notes

Aroma - Smoked meats and meats and mince pies give way to rich blackcurrent sorbet, aged leather notes develop alongside lemon zest and a subtle hint of vanilla custard.

Palate - Blood orange and deep dark chocolate complement roasted coffee beans.  A hint of beeswax polish develops accompanied by mixed nuts

Finish - Soft smoke and maple cured bacon linger on the short to medium finish.
