    Pleasantly sweet nose, nice soft and clear sherry. Not as sweet as the nose, dry sherry, dried plum, slightly bitter taste. From the classic Caol Ila smoke is almost nothing to taste. In the end, the sherry stays on the tongue and after a while, some salt is added. Simply great. Soft, round, lots of sherry and light smoke. Needs some air to the office, otherwise it is more intense. Just a pity that the price is so heavy.

    "A 27 year old Caol Ila bottled by Douglas Laing as part of their

    impressive Platinum collection. Distilled in 1984 and bottled in 2011

    after maturing in a sherry cask."
