Distilled – 15th May 1980
Bottled – 31st May 2010 for the Bladnoch Forum
Colour– A lovely Golden syrup
Nose– An earthiness (dunnage warehouses) mixes in with the Caol Ila medicinalness , a slight hint of farmyard and nettles (I’m starting to get a lot of this in certain Islay malts….)
Palate– OMG ! The medicinalness is still there in huge dollops ! there’s a very nice oakiness as well , lots of spices and pepper . A fantastic mouthfeel for such an old whisky .
Finish Huge finish , medicinal , oak spices , pepper . Goes on and on and on and on……
Comments– This does not disappoint , a cracking Caol Ila , Another has been ordered…….
