Caol Ila are good across vintages and age statements. Let’s take a look at this 1979, 33 years old The Whisky Agency/Nectar beauty. Bottled in 2012 after maturing in a refilled hogshead, the strength maintains at a healthy 53.7%. Nose of citrus fruits, soft, sweet peat, kelp. Palate amplifies the citrus fruitiness as well as the saltiness, coupled with some minerals and iodine. Finish is rather long with hint of herbs and tar.
