    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of 310 bottles from cask no. 3348Caol Ila invariably produces good whisky, but this is breathtakingly good! We feel privileged to be offering it! From a refill hogshead, its colour is pale gold with green lights. The nose is fresh as a sea-breeze; squeaky-clean, with malt vinegar, hair lacquer and super-glue; behind this fragrant smoke (almost joss-sticks) and smoky-bacon crisps (the latter something of a hall-mark of the make). The flavour at full strength is very sweet, with appetising vinegar, masses of charcoal as you swallow and a lingering flavour of picalilli) The addition of water reduces the aromas noted above, but leaves them intact: overall fresh and clean. The flavour is at once sweet, acidic, salty and smoky, with a long finish and an aftertaste of gherkins. A magnificent example of a fine malt – if you like the big Islay style.
