Insider knowledge: Caol Ila 17 Year Old 1996 (casks 5572+5573) - Un-Chillfiltered Collection (Signatory) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Caol Ila 17 Year Old 1996 (casks 5572+5573) - Un-Chillfiltered Collection (Signatory) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Gentle on the nose with a hint of minerals, well balanced. Has an immediate sweetness on the palette, but then the ride begins, you take off on a flavour roller coaster with ups and downs and some hefty fire included. Great fun, and a real pastiche of Caol Ila whisky.
