Caol Ila 30 Year Old 1983 Bottling Note

Sure to be a favourite of the 2014 Special Releases this is a 30 year old Caol Ila single malt, distilled in 1983 and matured in a mix of refill American and European oak casks. 7,638 bottles were produced.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Huge. Medicinal Germolene leaps out at first, followed by melon, candy sticks, nuts and cream. Rice pudding too, perhaps with a little jam, then into pleasing sootiness.

Palate: More menthol, melon, mango, rough leather, sourdough and a smokiness that builds before taking centre stage on the tail.

Finish: Long with a touch more soot and plenty of smoke, impressive at this age.

Overall: Pretty stunning. There are elements of some great Port Ellens in here.

Absolutely fabulous, comparable to previous one cask releases by independent bottlers. Do not be turned off by the "refill casks" that they use, the flavour and price are right!

@Casks?

Hi, they're refill casks yes (we've updated the bottling note to say that now), and it will indeed be a vatting. Don't let any of that put you off though, this release has some serious wow factor and was most people's pick of the bunch at the tastings we've attended. - The Chaps at Master of Malt

Casks?

Hi chaps. The description says American/European oak. Is that a Bourbon maturation finished in sherry? Or a vatting of casks? Also, any idea if the casks are 1st-fill?
