This is an ex-bourbon matured bottling of Caol Ila spirit distilled in 1991 and bottled in 2013. It is bottled at cask strength.
Honey, biscuits, apple butter. Salt and pepper, faint smoke, butter cream. Nice minerality.
Medium length, some heat. Apple butter note here persists. Salty with some nice pepper and a good blast of ashy smoke. The smoke and the salt and pepper components really balance the sweetness here. Very nice.
Long, dry and ashy. Nice oak presence, good vanilla backbone plays well with the growing smoke.
Complex and ever changing, this progresses from sweet and fruity to dry and smoky in a really great way.
