Caol Ila 1996 - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon and MacPhail)

Caol Ila 1996 G&M Bottling Note

This 1996 vintage bottling from Gordon and MacPhail's Connoisseur's Choice is a veritable exhibition of Caol Ila's character, there is a fruity freshness underpinning phenols and a strong coastal note.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose pertains a certain herbal quality with a well-balanced cereal sweetness. There are some gentle medicinal notes, the smoke is thick, yet elegant with a dark, chewy peat. The palate is quite full and rich. There smoke is big and whirling with barley sugars and a touch of honey. An apple note emerges with a kelp note. The finish is long and a tad briny with smoke and dry ropes.

User Reviews of the Caol Ila 1996 - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon and MacPhail)

One of my favorites

For this price, I can't really think of better scotch... A healthy dose of smoke but with the complexity of a Speyside. A palate that explodes with flavor.
