Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

1 of only 225 bottles from cask 685

An example of how well Caol Ila can take long maturation in a refill hogshead. The colour is deep gold, with big beads and fat legs, indicating texture. Powerfully phenolic, but in a deep and satisfying way: carbolic soap immediately, but behind this smouldering autumn leaves and a bright floral fragrance (jasmine, mimosa). With water it remains vaguely floral with advancing lemongrass, but with traces of waxed jackets and freshly laundered linen, modifying the smoke and soap. The taste is surprisingly sweet (caramel toffees), with a voluptuous mouthfeel at reduced strength, and plenty of ominous lingering, smoke in the long finish. Warming, both on the palate and down the throat with hints of wasabe. Big and sensual, and a curious mix of spring and autumn.
