CAOL ILA SHERRY 15 YO 70 Cl
Elegant and refined. this delicate Caol Ila has spent 15 years in a sherry butt before being botted by the independent bottler Valinch & Mallet. Its texture like a heather, the sherry and the peat are intertwined: perfect combination of gustative notes.
|Nose||Opens with marmalade-laden buttery toast, milk chocolate and fresh orange notes, before red cherry, strawberry and raisin comes through. Lashes of vanilla and a suggestion of spearmint, too.|
|Palate||Leads with more of that creamy chocolate, fruity yoghurt and honey. Peach is in there too, and in with all the oiliness is a pine-like quality.|
|Finish||Yoghurt-covered almonds with some liquorice and, yes, some distant smoke.|
