- Caol Ila 15 Year Old Duthies
15 year old Coal Ila bottled by Cadenhead's under their Duthies brand which is free from colouring and non-chillfiltered.
Nose: very sweet; gentle brine and sea salt. A touch of fresh tar. Palate: Very reassuring. Not overpowering but subtle smoke and seaweed flavour balanced by a great oily mouthfeel.
