Caol Ila Distiller’s Edition 2009

Country: Scotland
Region: Islay
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 43%
Score: 90 points

This malt is 12 years old, and spent some time in muscatel wine casks before bottling. The nose is aromatic and smoky with dry sweet wine notes of grapes and raisins. The taste is thick and sweet, with peaty notes that build over time and a slight tartness. The mouthfeel is dry and cottony, and the finish has a blend of grapes and peaty notes.
