Insider knowledge: Caol Ila 30 Year Old 1980 - Old Malt Cask (Douglas Laing) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Caol Ila 30 Year Old 1980 - Old Malt Cask (Douglas Laing) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Calves leather, heather honey, charred oak, linseed oil and cool wood ashes.
Palate: Toffee sauce on hot pancakes, with a side of distinctly Caol Ila-esque smoke. Spiced.
Finish: Smoked cashews with peanut butter and rum spice.
