In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 90. My notes state a light golden colour. According to Grant Carmichael this was produced in the old distillery before it has been demolished in 1972 and completely rebuilt in its modern style as of today. It must have matured in refill sherry casks (probably 3rd or 4th fill due to the pale colour) as at these times Caol Ila did not use any bourbon casks at all. The nose is quite fruity and sweet. The body is oily as usual for pot stills. On the palate some toffee and peaty flavours combine with a nice sweetness to a delicate mix. It is not very bold. The finish is a little peppery and not very long.
The price of this bottle was about 250-300 Euros back in 2002.
