    Caol Ila Signatory Vintage Cask strength collection 9 years with 27month first fill sherry finish 58.7%

    Caol Ila, never bad. Bourbon Cask, Sherry Cask, all top notch. Personally, I have a soft spot for Islay whisky on Sherry Casks. This is a sherry finish, which is not quite the same, but judging by the color of the drink, it was a very active sherry cask.

    On the nose immediately a smell of ham and salted bacon on the BBQ. Hard fried honey marinated ribs. Behind it is a great sherry influence that is both sweet and spicy. After about 5 minutes in a glass, the BBQ smells will settle down and the sweetness will come to the fore. What I recognize is a game stew with mustard and cranberry jelly. Warm caramel and a pomme d'amour also stand out.

    On the taste, the BBQ goes full on the attack. Delicious notes of fried and smoked meat. The sweetness is also clearly noticeable. I get honey, thick candy syrup, caramel and warm strawberries covered in dark chocolate and cinnamon.

    In the finish, the smoked notes take a final spurt and, yes, French toast. Fried mushrooms with thyme.

    Exclusive bottle available @ TasTToe
