Caol Ila 30 1984 #10428 Bottling Note

Part of Douglas Laing's Xtra Old Particular range, which was introduced in 2014, this Caol Ila certainly fits the bill of being well-matured, sitting at a cool 30 years old. It was distilled in January 1984 and left to mature in a refill hogshead until October 2014, when it was bottled at cask strength without any chill-filtration or added colour. Only 258 bottles were produced, each alongside a handsome presentation box.

Caol Ila 30 Year Old 1984 (cask 10428) - Xtra Old Particular (Douglas Laing) Reviews

Frazzles the mouth

This is an expensive bottle of Scotch. So we bought it in a club and split the cost.

Be careful when nosing this dram as it'll burn your nose hairs. With a light sniff we got some tangerine zest, citrus flavours and Turkish delight with rose water sweetness.

We tried chewing on it but our mouths went numb, but it's a good way to season your palate. Dilution with a drop of water is an option, but this whisky is supposed to be massive.

So on the palate we got a bit of bacon frazzles. So much flavour it's almost too big when the saltiness hits. The complexity of flavours are so immense and very difficult to explain, but drinking this type of whisky is an experience you'll never forget.

The Fat Pig Whisky Club, Exeter.
