Caol Ila 35YO Special.Release F19

This beauty from Caol Ila was the oldest single malt to be released from the 2018 edition of Diageo Special Releases. It was distilled at the much-loved Islay distillery in 1982 before it was subsequently matured for 35 years in a mixture of refill American-oak hogsheads, and both refill American- and European-oak butts. It was bottled at a cask strength 58.1% ABV with an outturn of 3726 bottles.

Nose
Walk into a dusty old library and someone's scoffing bread and butter pudding - our first impression of this grande dame. There's also gentle peach, peppery vanilla and salted caramel, with an oily smoke lurking in the background.

Palate
The smoke is stronger on the palate - like paraffin torches at Bonfire Night. There's poppy seed bread, strawberry jam, black peppercorns and honeycomb, with a real herbal edge, too.

Finish
Gorgeously long and marvellously smoky - loads of rich, nutty cereal notes along with a milk chocolate quality.
