    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 193 bottles from cask no. 687
    Well-aged Islays can have so much to offer and this venerable Caol Ila is no disappointment. A warm golden hue with good beading, the initial nose is of tinned tropical fruits: lychees, pineapple chunks, and mango, possibly even a tropical fruit salad. Hard pears enter the mix as the nose develops, and then the expected chimney soot makes a welcome appearance. Tasting at natural strength (recommended), this is an incredibly sweet Islay whisky but never far from sea nor smoke: Cascamite (maritime wood glue), intense wood smoke and all rounded off with more pineapple sweetness. Water introduces a more waxy texture, with Lapsang Souchong and swimming pool footbaths. A long, long finish at natural and unreduced strength. Well worth waiting 28 years to taste this one.
