Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : or blanc à reflets verts.
  • Nose : vif, précis. La tourbe jaillit littéralement du verre, elle est accompagnée de réglisse et de fleurs blanches. Complexe, il évolue sur des notes d'iris, de gentiane, d'iode et de sel. Caol Ila jusqu'aux bouts des doigts.
  • Palate : à l'instar du nez, ferme, droite. La tourbe est présente, elle constitue la colonne vertébrale de ce millésime 1998. Elle se déploie sur les fruits exotiques (ananas, passion), sur la verveine, la sauge, la résine d'épicéa et l'herbe fraichement coupée.
  • Overall : longue, riche. La fumée est omniprésente (cendres) ainsi que le cuir. Minérale (ardoise), elle évolue sur le sirop d'orgeat et la bouillie d'orge. Belle âcreté mêlée d'humus, de poivre et de noix.
The brand

The brand

As well as reflecting its smoky, malted barley, Caol Ila is also oily and peaty, with marine and vegetable notes. Its recent official bottlings, which are particularly expressive, have an intense smoky and peaty character with a good balance of saltiness and sweetness. Superb versions of this single malt have also been released by independent bottlers Gordon MacPhail & Signatory Vintage. Caol Ila’s stills, which are large and onion-shaped, have a strong influence on this single malt and give it a fairly light and delicate character. Find out more


Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.
