Caol Ila Unpeated 15yr (2016 Special Releases)

Caol ila 12 year old This Caol Ila Unpeated 12 Year Old was bottled as part of the 2016 Diageo Special Releases and tasted at their launch event in London.

I was really looking forward to this as i loved the 2014 Unpeated Caol Ila but this one just didn't do it for me, it was just too metallic for my liking.

Thanks to Diageo for the invite to this prestigious event.


lovely sweet buttered rolls fresh gentle citrus fruit skins, without the tang, fresh sweet sherbet, a hint of vanilla essence and a splash of lemon drizzle cake

rich and tasty, theres quite a boldness to this, rich fruit skins, a gentle fruity note of sweet sugar coated plums and figs, metallic though

a hint metallic and tannic
