Caol Ila Unpeated 2011 Bottling Note

One of the best Unpeated Caol Ila's so far (as of 2011), this is a stunning whisky, distilled in 1999 and aged in first fill ex bourbon American oak casks. Really very good indeed! A release of 6,000 bottles.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: An old-fashioned tuck shop greats the nostrils; sherbet, Refreshers sweets and various boiled items in jars (the kind that shatter your teeth instantly). There’s also an assortment of “Cinema Snacks” – mainly chocolate-coated raisins and toffee popcorn. Hints too of walnut, ginger and mace.

Palate: Very rich (and at 64%abv that means VERY rich), offering up stem ginger in syrup, parma violets, lemon meringue pie, chili and melted rum & raisin ice cream.

Finish: Long and sublimely sweet with exotic spices and pear juice.

Overall: A recurring theme of almost soapy parma violets seems to be popping up! A very unusual Caol Ila, and certainly one of the best Unpeated Caol Ilas we’ve had.

User Reviews of the Caol Ila 12 Year Old Unpeated (2011 Release)

So floral, so sweet

I think of this Scottish "wine" as one of the best Caol Ila unpeated sofar! I'm by far not as good with words as you guys from MoM, I do understand (and have experienced) your wording of the tasting note and only missed one word, to be added: marshmellows.

Amazing and noteworthy. Simple flavors, yet satisfying to drink. 2 of the 4 bottles I bought have been hidden on the back shelf.
