Caol Ila
Gordon & Macphail Gordon & MacPhail Discovery Range Caol Ila 13 year old 43%

Age: 13-15 yrs
ABV: 43
Bottle size: 70
Primary Cask: American oak
In stock - only one available

Tasted: Aug 2019
The nose is rather full and fruity for a Caol Ila with plenty of banana and almost tropical apricot and honey. Very lightly peated and salty with hints of gooseberry and oak. Slightly medicinal with time but I have to say it's a full and fruity one!

The palate is lighter and slightly saltier with barley, apricot and subtle peat. Quite oaky by Caol Ila standards with again an almost tropical Arran-esque fruit character. Hints of lime and gooseberry on the middle and a long, salty, smoky finish with a touch of violets and Springbank-esque oily/ fishy notes. Interesting!
