Caol Ila Limited Edition

Country: Scotland
Region: Islay
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 58.3%
Score: 91 points

This is only sold at the Caol Ila gift shop, and is aged in sherry butts. The nose is spicy and peaty with notes of brine, seaweed, and chopped nuts. The taste is thick, chewy, and smoky, with a pepperiness that builds and builds, but never masks the honey and brine notes underneath. The finish is smoky and long with a hint of figs.
