Caol Ila Stitchell Reserve Unpeated 59,6%
Tasting Notes: By Tasos Protopapas
Nose: Tantalizing caramel syrup, black chocolate and butter biscuit aromas followed by orange zest, seductive green apples, exotic coconut and hints of smoke.
Palate: Rich, clean and sweet. Honey is delightfully infused with juicy peaches and cherries, accompanied with hints of wood and spicy cinnamon waves.
Finish: Smooth, woody and fruity aftertaste with a bit of bitter.
This very successful edition, represents a different and innovative approach from a distillery which is traditionally known for its peated and smoked whiskies. Sweet and fruity with hints of smoke!
The unpetead limited edition natural cask strength Caol Ila has been aged in refill American Oak, ex-bodega European Oak and rejuvenated American Oak. Intense, mouth-filling, with a wonderful smooth texture. A great surge of sweet spiciness on the palate and a honeyed, warming character with an oily, creamy finish. The bottle bears the name of Stitchell's family whose five generations were in charge in producing the magnificient malt of Caol Ila.
