    It's a pretty obscure recent bottling brought over to USA by Preiss Imports. Newly opened. Gift from a friend / real estate agent who helped us with our house. Thank you.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Lovely nose, with a complex mix of peat, nectarine, and honeycomb. A good, balanced nose, and likely a very good old age for Caol Ila as well, I suspect. Can't wait to taste!

      It doesn't coat the tongue, but dances lightly all over it. There's certainly some oak here, which is a bit much at times, but the juice itself is rather delicious. Combination of soft yellow stone fruits, herring, peat, and seawater, but also some leather and tree bark from mid-palate onwards. I got this bottle as a gift, and I am very thankful for it.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium length, quite oaky now, with quite a bit of oak and peppery spice, which is its only fault. Otherwise, a damn good Caol Ila. A well-aged Caol Ila is almost guaranteed to be good, and this is a prime example. I'm not surprised a bottle of this caliber has gone unnoticed in America the past few years, but I am surprised that it came to America to begin with. At any rate, good for those that have a bottle of this.
