- Caol Ila 14 Year Old 2000 Cadenhead's
Caol Ila 14 Year Old 2000 vintage Islay single malt Scotch whiskey. Matured in bourbon hogsheads and bottled 2015 by Cadenhead's for the Small Batch series. 576 bottles.
Nose: Classic Caol Ila. Sweet and creamy with dry ashy smoke in perfect balance. You can feel the coastal breeze blowing in with this dram.
Palate: Ashier than the nose suggests. Smoky limoncello? Lots of thick creamy notes and a touch of honey give this dram a nice layered effect of flavours.
Finish: Smoke; vanilla; lemon; lime and melted white chocolate intertwine long after you have finished drinking this great Islay dram.
