2013 Claxton's Exploration Series Caol Ila 7 Year Old Single Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Islay, SCOTLAND
$130.00 Bottle
  • ABV 50%

Tasting note: Caol Ila and sweet sherry can make a fabulous match. This bottling no doubt takes inspiration from Lagavulin's stunning PX finished 'Distiller's Edition'. Deep burnished gold. Typical distillery character on the nose, including sweet smoked meats, kipper, crushed pine buds and lanolin, delivered with a degree of maritime freshness. Flavour wise, pushes the limits of workable sweet'n'peat, the heavy sherry almost sticking to the smokey fruit cake finish where the vibrancy falls away. Imagine Caol Ila drizzled over a bowl of Summer pudding, perhaps with a little caramel sauce in tow. The result is distinctive, though it may be too much for some. Try with aged cheeses. 50% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.

Notes from Claxton's... Nose: Heavily toasted barley. BBQ flavours. Burnt pine needles. Toasted Marshmallow. Palate: Sweet and viscous. Heavy peat rushes through leaving a sweet, oily, toasted flavour. Finish: Long, sweet and peaty. Ash from a burnt cake. Sugary-sweet aftertaste.
