- Caol Ila 32 Year Old 1984 Magnum Old & Rare
Caol Ila 32 Year Old 1984 vintage Islay single malt Scotch whiskey. Single cask refill hogshead bottled April 2016 by Hunter Laing & Co. for the Old & Rare Platinum Selection. Presented in a giant 1.5 litre Magnum bottle. Just 18 numbered bottles produced.
This dark gold whiskey has typically Islay notes on the nose of peat, bonfire ash, seaweed and sea salt. The palate is smooth but slightly spicy, with notes of peat, chimney smoke and fragrant green herbs. The finish is long and lingering, with a subtle spice and peat influence remaining on the tongue.
