A 2009 vintage Caol Ila from Parcel No.2 of Elixir Distillers' Reserve Cask series. Matured for 10 years in five hogsheads, this has aromas of coastal breeze, grilled lemons, rosewater and Highland Toffee are also on the nose. The palate offers notes of BBQ meats, caramel sauce and syrup.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose - A bouquet of flavours: coastal breezes and smoky chargrilled lemons are followed by an indulgent dessert of saltwater taffy, which boasts a delicate hint of lily of the valley.
Palate - Honey-glazed pork is barbecued on charcoal; undertones of caramel ice cream come through with a layer of maple syrup. Floral notes of rosewater abound just beneath the surface.
Finish - A medium-to-long smoky-kindling finish, gently ashy with a sprinkling of white pepper and a layer of toffee sweetness.
