OCTAVE PREMIUM CAOL ILA 2008 15 YEARS 70 CL
The Caol Ila 2008 Premium Octave has aged for 15 years in oak casks then spent the final months in an octave cask. This is a limited release of only 90 bottles. This is a single cask, bottled in 2023 at cask strength, not chill-filtered or colored.
|Nose||Walnuts and miso with earthy sherry and dried porcini mushrooms. Pinewood ashes, a touch medicinal, a lemony cough syrup.|
|Palate||Well Balanced with the clean distillate shining throughout. A touch of ginger and a dry flinty muscadet white wine. Salty creme brulee, limoncello and some smoky cured salmon.|
|Finish||Rather Long and extremely well balanced. The ashy notes return, alongside some bitter chocolate covered walnuts.|
