2007 Gordon & Macphail Connoisseurs Choice Caol Ila 13 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
This reads like a classic Caol Ila, except that it's from a single refill sherry butt (#311975). All the better for being cask strength! Limited to 611 bottles.
Notes from the bottlers... Cured meat aromas are balanced by ripe green apples and cocoa powder. fruitcake notes develop with hazelnuts and autumnal spice. Taste: stewed fruit and honeycomb give way to rich cinnamon. cracked black pepper comes to the fore alongside malted biscuit and sweet smoke. Finish: a full finish with lingering bonfire embers. 59.7% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
