Caol Ila 15 Year Old 1998 Bottling Note

It's not every day you see unpeated Caol Ila, but it's part of Diageo's Special Releases for a reason - it's a bit special, it is. Released for the 2014 collection of Special Releases, this edition was distilled in 1998 and matured in first-fill ex-bourbon casks for 15 years before being bottled at an intense 60.3% ABV with an outturn of 10,668 bottles.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: There's instantly more going on here than in last year's unpeated release. Glorious vanilla fudge given depth by some fruity notes. There's a hint of confectioner's sugar and fruity jelly sweets before clean ship deck aromas, a hint of mint and a little clean seashell all surface, all without peat. Very nice indeed.

Palate: "Creamy" was the first thing I noted down, as much to do with mouthfeel as taste. More subtle fudge notes now, alongside more citrus and milk chocolate, all held together by that creaminess.

Finish: First suggestion of any smoke, intermingled with baking spices.

Overall: Recognisable from its peaty version, but personally at least, I wouldn't describe this as 'maritime', even with the 'belonging by the coast' descriptors that have snuck into the notes above. I would describe it as very good though.

I'm calling this one !

I'm calling this one even before I've got my mitts on it and with it been unpeated I'm intensely aware for the demand for it rather like glenmorangies taghta which I missed my chance to purchase it but I'm not fretting I've got one and I will never miss a opportunity like this one. NEVER I TELL YOU !
