1995 Caol Ila 20 Year Old "K&L Exclusive" Signatory Cask Strength Single Barrel Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1237052

We've got three words for you in relation to our new 20 year old Caol Ila cask: BUY, BUY, BUY!!! Diageo has been sold out of the standard Caol Ila 12 year expression for the last year due to shortages of the peated Islay malt. Somehow, someway, however, we locked down an absolutely stunning 20 year hogshead at full proof for a price far less than what it should be. This isn't some rag tag cask either, but rather an absolutely glorious expression of everything that makes Caol Ila wonderful: a round, fruity, almost creamy mouthfeel of soft vanilla and oily richness, contrasted by an intense peatiness that injects a healthy dose of smoke into all that weight. At cask strength, there's extra pop to all that dynamism, but it never overpowers the flavor. This whisky needs no water, no dilution whatsoever in order to be enjoyed. Just pop and pour, and take in everything that makes Caol Ila one of Scotland's legendary whiskies--during a time when supplies happen to be scarcer than ever!

This is a delicious and wonderful expression from Caol Ila. It has nice smoky aromas that have a hint of sea salt. In the mouth it is not too heavy, with a soft mouthfeel and subtle flavors. An excellent single malt that is easy to enjoy. Since it is cask strength a splash of water helps soften and open it up.

My New Year's resolution with include drinking as much of this twenty year old, cask strength Caol Ila as possible. Aromas of beautiful smoke, charcoal and leather are balanced by a palate of apples, tea, walnuts, and vanilla with a full, almost oily texture. This is the perfect nightcap.
