Caol Ila 'Signatory' 2010 / 10 years Old Sherry Cask Aged
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 60.3%
Distilled at the Caol Ila distillery in 2010, this mahogany hued whisky has spent 10 years maturing in an ex-sherry refill butt, with this style of Caol Ila traditionally showing flavours of barbeque charred fruits (particularly citrus) and salty, smoky cured meats. The peat smoke is quite thick, with a note of burnt caramel and over-cooked Christmas cake. A lingering damp peat or wood smoke smouldering in an open fireplace remains.
