Insider knowledge: Caol Ila 11 Year Old 1999 - Un-Chillfiltered (Signatory) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Caol Ila 11 Year Old 1999 - Un-Chillfiltered (Signatory) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Coastal and creamy, notes of oak, paraffin, rubber and black pepper. Malty too.
Palate: Aniseed curiously, with plenty of oily smoke, toasty oak, malt and brine. Great balance.
Finish: Good length with peat smoke and salted caramels.
