Insider knowledge: Caol Ila 24 Year Old 1984 - The Coopers Choice (The Vintage Malt Whisky Co.) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Caol Ila 24 Year Old 1984 - The Coopers Choice (The Vintage Malt Whisky Co.) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: A wisp of tarry rope, coastal flowers growing between the rocks and fragrant vanilla.
Palate: More coastal flora, a little caramel and warm sand.
Finish: Sweet, with wood smoke and a liberal dusting of allspice.
