CONNOISSEURS CHOICE 2004
from Caol Ila Distillery
Passion for single malt Scotch whisky has been at the heart of our family business for four generations. This range is an ever changing collection of unique perspectives on distilleries’ own bottlings, non-chill-filtered single cask and small batch expressions bottled at cask strength and exceptional one-offs.
For the malt whisky explorer, it promises a journey of discovery through different flavours, finishes, strengths and vintages.
Complex and fruity: light PEAT SMOKE and DRY CURED MEATS mix with VANILLA POD revealing CRANBERRIES, REDCURRANTS and delicate ORANGE BLOSSOM. A DRIED APRICOT and PLUM edge develops.
Creamy, hints of LIQUORICE and warming PEPPER transform into spicy OAK notes. CHOCOLATE, ripe RASPBERRY, and BLACKCURRANT transform with gentle BEESWAX undertones.
Long, FOREST FRUITS mature into lingering PEAT SMOKE infused with CHARRED OAK and BONFIRE EMBERS.
First fill bourbon and refill American casks
