Brand: Single & Single
Type: Scotch Single Malt
Region: Scotland – Islay
Strength: 54.6% alc/vol
Caol Ila 2010, a 10 Year Old bottled at cask strength, 54.6% ABV. A single cask, matured in HHD, each of the 216 bottles is numbered (as per usual).
Nose: Rich sooty and warming smoke, lots of bright green apples and tart gooseberries. Hints of old lobster pots, rusting harbour apparatus and old tin cans of paint. A slightly tarry note develops into sweeter liquorice and aniseed.
Palate: A delicious mouthfeel. Wonderfully balanced warming, sooty smoke intertwines with sweet liquorice, sharp menthol and eucalyptus. An exquisitely fragrant fusion of peppermint and lapsang souchong tea.
Finish: Long and smoky, but mellowed with sweet menthol and star anise notes.
