Caol Ila Distillery Edition 2000 – 1000ml – Collectible Whisky
A 2000-2012 Distillers Edition bottling of Caol Ila single malt Scotch whisky, distilled in 2000 and bottled in 2012. This one is in the much rarer and unique 1000ml bottling.
Before it was bottled, it had spent in a finishing period in Moscatel casks. All for imparting more rich sweetness to the smoky single malt. As ever from Caol Ila, it’s an excellent example of the top-notch malts on the Isle of Islay.
Caol Ila Distillery Edition 2000 is a sweeter, grapier tasting version of Caol Ila. Besides, Moscatel wine casks seem to bring more demerara sugar, white grapes, and some orange peel notes to the whisky. But don’t worry! there’s still enough peat smoke inside! This is part of Diageo’s Distillers Edition range, and was initially matured in American oak.
Sold out everywhere in the west. All in all, this is a must have for collectors.
Appearance: Clear gold.
Nose: Wonderfully concentrated and clean, peaty, medicinal, with rich fruit, spicy and fragrant.
Palate: Sweet maltiness strike first, then overwhelmed by peat smoke, intense, crisp flavours, and cinnamon spice.
