    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 270 bottles from cask 6263
    We often find that Caol Ila is best drunk young – full of medicinal charm, seaside smells and sweet smoke. Fortunately, this example from an American oak hogshead has not only retained its youthful vigour, bud added complexity in its maturing years. Medium gold in colour, this has a reassuringly medicinal nose with washing up water, citrus fruit and seaweed. Then comes carbolic soap and smoked sausages with juniper berries. Finally, coal tar soap and sweet, sweet tablet. With water, the sweetness is magnified, and then bags of smoke. On the palate, more berries, herbs and spices, really thick and oily, plenty of smoke and pepper, but all the time shampoo-fresh. A classic, complex Islay.
